how much do the stock 2001 Prius 14" wheels weigh?
 
they don't seem to have a "name", just a number 69453

2001-2003 Toyota Prius 14" 69453 - All Factory Wheels

I'm just curious
as I picked up a set of VW "le casselettes" with some nearly new Blizzak WS50's for my 01 Prius
they are FORGED, and I believe they weigh about 15.4lbs each

Check out WheelWeights.net - Database of Wheel Weights ... that list MIGHT have some answers. Another way to do it is weight the wheel/tire combo and estimate the wheel weight by getting the tire weight at tirerack.com and subtracting it from your measured total weight ... not a precise measure but if it's all you have for data and you only need a rough number ...

Thanks,

I've got a scale, but wanted the official weight

your link shows a spreadsheet
Toyota Prius 01-03
Cast 14x5.5
weight 13 lbs / KG 5.8967012

that seems very light

Yes, that's light, but not as light as the contemporary seventh gen Civic HX wheels would have been at about 11 lbs and not as light as the fifth gen Civic VX at 9.7 lbs., so it is entirely within the real of believability. Light wheels, good for FE, and the VX, HX, and Prius were designed to be champs in that category.
