Default What do your wheels/ tires weigh?

I pulled a wheel off today to measure/ weigh it. From the inside center where the wheel hits the hub to the wheel lip I got 5 3/4". I wish I had my metric tape, but I'm assuming that's wayyy too much backspacing.
Junk Motegi's.
I also threw one on a scale. I'm rockin 205/45/r16 toyo proxes 4's. 31lbs wheel and tire. It appears that my rotating mass has a weight disorder.
What are you guys running weight wise?

31#s is pretty respectable, actually.

When I got my RPF-1's a couple of months ago, I took the opportunity to weigh the various combinations that had been on my car. This is what I got:

Daisy + 185/60R14 BFG GTH (70%): 29.6#s
Konig Feather + 195/50R15 Yoko S-Drive (40%): 30.2#s
Enkei RPF-1 + 205/50R15 BFG G-Force Sport (100%): 29.2#s

It appears that although I have shitty wheels, I'm competing with you guys weight wise.
