Does anyone know the approximate weight of a typical 16" Mercedes alloy rim? (i.e 16" 7.5J W210 Elegance or similar).
Thanks in anticipation.

If it helps for comparison purposes, a 14" steel wheel + inflated tyre weighs 13kg (I recently bought some from a car that was being broken up on ebay and needed this information for a courier).

Yes, I also need to know the weight for courier purposes but just the weight of the rim, without tyre. From the replies I've had, I think I can safely assume that a bare rim would be less than 10kg. Thanks for the replies everyone.

Thanks for the offer but no need to trouble. I have now had confirmed that these rims weigh 9.86kg according to a Mercedes parts dept.
Thanks again for all the responses.
