Tire Rack lists different weights for different color TRM C1M's. I have a few questions:
1) Has anybody weighed these wheels? If so, what color and what was the actual(not advertised weight)?
2) Do the 25mm offset and 30 mm offset wheels have different weights?

Thanks.

I have put the black 25 off set on the scale, and got 13.5 but it's a cheap scale. Have not weighed any other color to compare. I called tire rack to ask the question how could just a chang in color have such a Change in wt. they could not explain it. Odd.

Frank, thanks for the straight answer. That's actually pretty close to the advertised weight of 13.6 lbs.

I really appreciate the information.

Weighed two wheels I had unmounted (black +30 offset). One was 13.3 the other 13.8. Each had roughly 3/4 oz of balancing weights still on them. Weighed on the shipping scale of a company right next to my garage. YMMV.
