Stock wheel. Mazda says 9.695kg, bare weight. I measured 10.26kg, including valve and some random balance weights. There were a couple of small revisions to the wheel, so some wheels may be slightly different.

I don't know about the PZ. Some people insist it is lighter, but I've never seen actual numbers for it.

Hi Carl,
The S1 wheels tend to average around 10 Kls but I have seen some at 9 Kls (I believe there may have been two manufacturers)
PZ wheels were reputedly 8 Kls but all the ones iv’e weighed have been 9 Kls
Remember powder coating a wheel this size can add a Kl if weight is important to you.
