    Actually I don't, your vague posts forced me to try and clarify and understand exactly what you were trying to convey. Almost cryptic.

    "Are these wheels worth anything?"

    They seem to be ultra very very super rarre in the USA, but worth absolutely nothing if I understood well

    Yes, too heavy. The alloy wheels are 10 lbs each vs these tanks.

    Alloys are ~22 lbs each and the steels are ~43 lbs each.

    It is not easy for an old guy like me to pick up a steely with a 35 inch tire wrapped around it.....:crybaby:

    I weighed a lx450 wheel and it was 9.7 lbs. I'm sure the LC wheel is not that far off.

    The 80 Series 16x8 alloy wheels I have weighed on my UPS shipping scale have all been in the 22 pound range.

    Perhaps our Toyota engineer will chime in....

    I was going to say...no way any OEM 16x8 alloy is going to weigh 9.7 lbs. Something was wrong with that scale.

    I bet your scale is set to Kilograms, not pounds.

    9.7 KG = 21.34 lbs.

    yup, the 16x8 wheel is 9.5-9.8 kg(nominal) depending on the supplier.

    The grooves in the LX wheel(compared to a LC wheel) do not really account for much weight difference.

    You'll also notice there are different shock and bump-stop parts for steel vs alloy wheels.
