Guys

What are the lightest front and rear wheels?

17x2.25" fronts and either 15"x10" or 15"x12" rears.

New or Old.

Pretty sure Jon builds the lightest front wheels. Bogart is most likely the lightest rears

Yes our JrFuel Bogarts, 12x15 weight 10 lbs ea, and I can sell 31x12x15 special order GoodYear slicks that only weigh 22.6lbs ea, everything else weighs at least 30 ea.
 I can build front wire spoke wheels with rib tires that will weigh 7 1/2 lbs ea

Feel free to call me 800-624-3803, at Hayden Wheels. I can give a discount to members .
