I would have to say they weigh around 35 pounds with tire... pretty heavy, but depends on the rim to, mine are 6 spoke satin finished enki's, I'm sure chrome would be more

I bet but I just meant without tires, just the rims alone..... they arent chrome but machined silver.... either way i think they will be nice for the civic....

the two main reasons im staying with 17's are because they look nice on the style of the civic and handling is so much better with 17's than 15's, but I do admit I wouldnt mind having 15's for the comfort when driving and lighter wheels and less rotating mass, but if I had 15's I would get ripped on all day....
