TE37SL vs Rota Grid Drift 9.5x18 et22 weight comparison

These wheels are a common fitment for skylines but i havent seen a comparison of the weights listed like for like.

I have had a set of both for some time and finally got round to weighing them.

Both have AD08Rs 265/35/18 fitted

Te37 20.7kg (full tread)
Rota 21.6kg (3mm tread)

Yokohama list the shipping weight of the tyre as 12.6kg

Rays TE37SL 8.1kg
Rota Grid Drift 9kg (+some rubber)

So around a kilo difference or 5% reduction of the wheel/tyre combine weight for 300% the price. Standard man maths.

When this forum had some life, this would have been a good thread. Lol

A few years ago I weighed - admittedly with bathroom scales in a garage attic - an Enkei NT03 18 x 9.5 and a Rota MXR-R 18 x 10 both with new 18" 888s. The Enkei's were 1kg lighter.

rotas are cast and the TEs are forged... a bit more than a 300% markup for a name, huh #britmaths

You get what you pay for. I still cant believe there are people on this earth who put rotas on GTRs.

After seeing a 19x10.5+12 TE37 (Currently mounted on my wall at home) hit a tree at a decent speed and bend, yet not crack or brake. I'll never buy replicas.

Loads of people put cast wheels on GTRs. The world is still turning OK.

Anyway if you want to be a wheel snob it's all about carbon wheels nowadays. Metal wheels are for the peasants who cannot afford a decent set of carbons. They are so common even Corvettes get them now...

I'll have to check but I think that my 17x9 TE37s are about 8kg. So I'm impressed that the 18s are about the same!
