Mounted a 275/35/15 on a 15x10.5 BBS E50 flatbase wheel. Pokes a bit too much on the rear adapters, so I'll have to figure out how to mount these. Might pick up the pair of 1" adapters for sale now.

32-35lb via bathroom scale. Hard to say for sure. A new tire is 20lbs, so says Tirerack. This tire is used. Wheel should be 13-16, but I didn't put the wheel together bare to weigh it. I'll do that with the next one.

No, that's less tire. Section width, tread width, height, and weight are less than what I have now. Only the wheel width has increased, from 9.5 to 10.5. These tires are kind of small for my car, so they should benefit from the wheel width. The sidewalls are also really soft. They work well on E30 BMWs on 10"+ wheels, but they tell me the pressure need to be run a bit higher than usual. I use ~32-34psi on my 275/45/16. I'll probably start at 38psi cold on these 15". I used to run up to 41-42psi hot on my 225/45/15 R3S04 to keep the edges from cording because I didn't have a lot of camber.

your wheels are heavy!

my 18x10.5 lm's with 305 30 18 R comps only weigh 44 lb each

the 15s make them seem like boat anchors though

Perhaps it was the scale? We weighed Kyle's LM's with the 235's on them or whatever they have, and they were right at 50 lbs, as were my Works with 225-40-18.

kyles are 19's so it makes sense they are going to be heavier. Diameter adds alot more weight then width does.

The spun lips on the 15"s are really light. A one piece cast wheel is MUCH thicker in the same area. Plus the spokes are integrated into the lips, so there's more material required.

My C4 Corvette wheels w/V710 tires were about 8lb heavier than the Work wheel w/Hoosier. Same size for each, but the Work is two piece with a really light rim. Tire weight difference was slight...most of it was in the wheel.

10.5" width, ~11.5" overall, 6.5" backspacing = ~19mm offset. Therefore 1" adapters should work well with these on the rear, and I can move the 35mm adapters from the rear to the front. 10.5 (-16)mm front gives 5.1" backspacing. On a 15x7, that's like ET28, so I may need the 5mm spacer on the front...going to be really close. If it's too close, I can just use the 51mm adapters on the front, but I don't want them sticking out more than what is necessary.

I'm liking this, making me more willing to cut the car to squeeze the goods in the fender.

Front tire comes in at 17lb on the bathroom scale, so the wheel is around 13lb as a 9", so maybe 14lb at most as a 10.5". I'll get one on an accurate & precise scale before I put a tire on the last one.

Yes, please. I'd like about -3.5 degrees. No idea what I have now. Thinking about adding a spacer between the camber plate and the strut tower to allow the top of the strut to slide under the sheet metal. I'll need to trim the camber plate, but that should do the job.
