It really depends on the rim. The range is quite large. I have seen as light as 17lbs all the way up to 42lbs.

Roughly 45-50 lbs for the combo...but tires alone usually weigh about 22ish.

A light 18 would be 20lb, a heavy set rim like a mom arrow will run close to 30.

45-50 is still pretty light. I'd say 48-56 is more "average" for an 18" wheel and tire. Width is a huge factor as well. My average is only up to around 8.5" wide.

50 pounds for a 18" tire and wheel combo isn't light by any means, and yes, width is probably the biggest factor in determining the total weight.

The difference in weight between an 8" wide rim and a 10" wide rim is just HUGE.
