wheel weight?


Recommended Posts

Hey there guys,

I am looking at a set of rear wheels (Just the outside rim) 18.4-38 filled with calcium. They are about an 8 hour round trip away and I am wondering if the weight of the pair would be more than my 3500 GMC can handle? Any thoughts to what they would weigh all in??

Thanks so much

I am pretty sure the pickup can handle the weight, but the size of the wheel/tire combination means that they would have to lean on or rest on the sides of the box and could damage them.  Do you have a friend or neighbor who has a flatbed trailer you could borrow?  That would be the safest way to transport them.  Good luck.

18.4x38’s with calcium will be 1500-1600 lbs. each, accounting for the weight of the rim, tire, and fluid. Be careful when handling them.
