List of wheel weights

Hello everyone.

After reading a new thread about lighter weight wheels vs. aero wheels I searched my laptop for a pdf file I had that was a very extensive list of wheel weights and sizes including diameter and bolt patterns. For the life of me I can't find it. I had wanted to add that information to the thread I mentioned and have it on the site in case anyone else searched for it. I tried a search of my old posts but didn't have any luck. I'm hoping someone here has seen the same list and can post it for future knowledge for the EM collective. I'll keep searching and if I find it I'll post it here or in a newly titled thread for easier reference.

Thanks

There are some really good websites, as I recall. One of the best has disappeared but there are others. If I get a chance, I'll post more today.

Right?! There was a site called like wheel-weights.net or something... gone I think. I found this in July and saved it. I have collected one or two others, too, hoping to make a mega post someday.

That's true. Good point. But the data on tht list is almost unreplaceable as a source for key datapoints in many, many comparisons.
