    Wheel Weight (kg)

    Hello,

    Is 18kg wheel weight too much for a 981 Boxster?

    Thanks
    Am

    Most Porsche rims are 10 to 12 kg. 18Kg, if that included the weight of the tire, would be light, as the tires weigh 10 to 12 kg. Due to different widths and sizes, the rear wheels and tires tend to weigh a little more than the fronts.
