Harlow Racing has wheel weights listed on their website. Wow, YOUR Holeshot Pentastars weigh a LOT less than what Brian has listed for his Holehsot weights. He has a Holeshot 15x10 weighing in at 11.5# whereas he has the AR TrakStar 15 x 10's listed at 11.6#

I just weighed a 10" Trackstar (w/titanium coating on the center) and I got it at 11.4 lbs. The one-piece bolt-on fronts weigh 8.5 lbs.

The 3 piece bolt-together fronts weigh about 9.7 to 9.9lbs. The one piece fronts(bolt-on) weigh from 8.5 to 9.4 depending on design.

I'll take your word for it. Was quoting what AR told me but maybe they meant the 1-piece instead of the 3.

Yea, I am just going off what he digital scale says. I try not to quote stuff "just off the top of my head", because that is a very scary place. I went and weighed them before I posted. It's almost impossible to get a three piece wheel as light as a one piece. You have the weight of the fasteners to consider and from the design side the bolt flange area has to be extra thick, adding weight that the one piece doesn't have to deal with.

The Holeshot weights are approximate through the style range and depend how much meat is left on the centers for that particular style. Some centers have more aluminum left and therefore the wheels are a little heavier than other styles, but yes the charts has the 15x10s at 11.5lbs for Holeshots.
