List of Tires With Their Weight

Recommended Posts

Ok there was an old mess of a thread with posted tire weights, the original poster was unable to edit the original post so it got to the point where you had to sift through 10 pages to get all of the results. I have copied/pasted/edited the list for your enjoyment. If you guys would like to add to the list with your findings feel free to respond, and I will edit this original post as I find time to. If you post tire weighs please make sure that you include the tire size.

 

Keep in mind that tire weights are not an exact science. I was at the local shop yesterday weighing some tires and there is a lot of fluctuation, for example I can take two identical Pirelli's, Bridgestones or Dunlops and one will be 5oz heavier than the next. So this is a guide line only. If you really are fussy about tire weights, buy 10 tires and weigh them all, keep the lightest and send the other 9 back. Otherwise there is no guarantee that by buying the lightest tire on this list, you are actually getting the lightest tire. For example I had intended to buy a new MX31 front because of this list. I weighed the one at the shop and it was 8.5lbs, so go figure. Ended up with a Pirelli MXMS which I was able to verify at 8.0lbs.

 

Because of this I really don't know how useful this information is, or how accurately it should be considered, but here it is anyways.

 

If you think this would be more useful organized differently feel free to make suggestions.

I used a 25lb digital shipping scale, with a 2' long 3x6 laid across it, zero'd out for tare weight. This way the tires could be set down on the 3x6 as the scale is way too small to be laid down on flat. Keep in mind that I only weighed a few tires on this list, most of them are from the old thread where I retrieved this information.

 

Sevenfoureight, check out the tires on denniskirk.com, it has a lot of specs including inflated width and diameter. I assume that they get this info from the manufacturers.

My collection of tire weights, although most of the posted weights are rounded to the nearest 0.1lb my original data was obtained with a 40lb digital scale that weighs to the nearist 0.1oz, or for light items I used a digital postal scale:

Update, I bought some more tires and tubes and weighed them. They seem pretty consistent to what has already been posted, except for the 100/90-19 Bridgestone M404 rears which are heavier. I weighed the last one myself that is in my original post so either they are inconsistent either from tire to tire, or from production run to production run.

 

Pirelli MXMS 80/100-21 8.1lb (2 of them, within 0.1oz of each other)

Pirelli MXMS 110/85-19 10.65lb

Bridgestone M404 100/90-19 10.75lb (within 2oz of each other, I split the difference for the 10.75lbs) The same M404 I weighed last year was quite a bit lighter.

 

Tubes

 

Bikemaster 2.75/3.00-21 1.2lb

Bikemaster 3.60/4.10-19 1.1lb

 

I got 2 of each of the tubes and the weights were consistent within 1oz.

 

If anyone has any new uninstalled tires that have yet to be listed it would be nice to see some contributions, if you have an accurate way to measure. Haven't seen any published weights of new MX32 or MX52, Bridgestone X30 or X40, and some Pirelli sizes. Would be nice to fill in the blanks.

What kind of scale did you use?  It would have to be something that would hang the tire to get a good weigh in.   I would like to see the DOT knobbies on the list.  I use Pirelli XCMH and Dunlop D 606.

 

The Kenda I just posted is a DOT knob.

A new heavy-weight champ! (no... that's not a good thing).  This "Mountain Hybrid" is a beefy tire. It's designed in Australia and made in Thailand.

 

Rear 18”   Brand size................................. lbs............. Comments
Motoz Mountain Hybrid   120/100x18....................... 15.94 lbs.... basically a beefed-copy of a MT43; DOT approved, non-radial pseudo-trials tire.  
 
I weighed it with a 40Kg digital scale accurate to +/-10.0 grams (1/3oz).... a couple of times because I didn't believe it. And the stickers were left on the brand-new tire, but still- that's frikken heavy.
 
I have been running Pirelli MT43 for about 8 years and I love 'em for everything ('cept loose or muddy downhills). I'm gonna mount this Mountain Hybrid on my '14 Husky TE310. The stock knobby (Michelin Enduro Competition III, not a Metzeler Karoo) is still sorta okay (and sorta bad) after 1300 miles; I normally get about 700-900 out of knobbies when I run 'em (typically Desert ATs).
 
I get 1900-2700 miles on a MT43. The big advantage with trials tires is the traction on the last day is reasonably close to the traction on the first day.

Another heavy tire from MotOz.  My son just ordered a Tractionator for his Husky TE511 and had it delivered to my house; I took the opportunity to weigh it since it was 2' from my scale.

 

Rear 18”   Brand size................................. lbs............. Comments
Motoz Tractionator Enduro I/T 130/90x18....................... 15.30 lbs.... Aggressive DOT knobby known for long tread wear.  
 
 

Tell me again why the lightest is the best...

 

Tire weight can matter (but not to me, really) because it's unsprung- the less mass the suspension has to deal with, the better.  Also, angular momentum is less with a lighter tire; meaning faster rotational acceleration (and de-acceleration. <--grrrrr.... I hate using that word).

Just picked up a Pirelli MXMS 110/90-19, weight was 10.9lbs.

 

It will no longer let me edit the original post, so if people keep contributing and there are enough to make it worthwhile I'll update the list and re-post it.

Lighter is better because the wheels are the place on the bike that you will feel a weight reduction more than anywhere else. The tires the outer most area of rotating mass on the unsprung areas of the bike.

 

People spend thousands on titanium chassis hardware to lose 3lbs off of the frame/engine of the bike without taking into consideration their tire selection completely ruining what they are trying to accomplish.

 

Lighter tires = improved acceleration, braking and handling. Whether or not you can feel every individual small change is doubtful but as a whole they definitely add up and make a difference.

 

I try to run the lightest tubes and tires as what are practical. For me that is Bikemaster tubes and Pirelli MXMS tires. I can assure you that if I replaced them with something like Sedona's and Ultra HD tubes, adding approximately 7lbs of rotating mass to my wheels, I'd feel a big difference and not a good one.

 

I understand that many don't care and that's fine, different strokes for different folks. I personally feel that weight reduction is a good thing, and tires are the most important yet overlooked area to start with before you start buying any other weight reducing part for your motorcycle. For a casual trail bike or dual-purpose I wouldn't worry much about it, I'd be more concerned about long life and puncture resistance. For a race bike I try to use every advantage I can get to make it superior.

Race bike.  You must mean a motocross bike, because there are other types of racing that would shred a light MX tire, desert racing or desert enduros for example.  That's why I run a 6 ply, heavy, purpose built tire and a heavy duty tube.  I don't race, but I run hard and fast, and I don't want a flat or a shredded tire.

Yes, motocross bike. I would definitely not consider running the tires that I use for desert racing. However I hear the Pirelli MX Xtra-X's with Mousse's work great for Baja.

^^what he said. I only put slime in my rear tube (no flat just as insurance) at the track the bike was terrible and way out of balance in the air. I swore up and down something was wrong. Changed the tube and everything was back to normal.

I just mounted a Sedona  on the rear and it is very heavy, will not use one again. It is either an 807 or HP7, just don't remember. Has a weird tread pattern and I will use it for intermediate to hard conditions. Will go back to something else when it wears out, just too heavy and it does affect the suspension action.
