Joe, Thanks for that photo and info on your tires. They sound like serious tires.
And look great on those rims!

Tom, your tire, *185R14C, does not have the letters LT as a prefix because that size is a European size. For tires listed by the ETRTO, European Tyre and Rim Technical Organisation, the suffix "C" means commercial use including trucks and buses. The LT prefix is for metric sizes listed by TRA,
The Tire and Rim Association, Inc
Which is the USA tire standards organization. The two designations are for practicle purposes the same. I thought this little technical fact might be of interest. There are a few other tire sanctioning bodies but these two are the most important.

According to what I could find they are only 0.3 pound lighter then steel rims.
My GY endurance 205/75R15 "D" tires are rated at 2150 pounds each at 65 PSI.

I talked to Sendel and these rims can be balanced both "hub centric" and "Lug centric" eliminating what can be a hassle. I got the tires at Discount tire and specified only stick on weights on the inside only period. The installer really didn't want to do it that way.
I shudder to think of them pounding on conventional weights on my brand new rims.
My 2017 GMC Sierra came from the factory that way

I have owned cadilacs and lincolns it irratates me to no end to take the car in for either new tires or balancing come out after paying and see pound on weights on the outside of a 2k set of rims.

I stand outside the service door, out of the shop area and watch and am not afraid to let them know when I see them getting out the pound on weights

I bought a set of tires once at Discount Tire and I specified that the weights be on the inside of the rim. When they were done I noticed that the weights were on the outside of the rim so I complained to the manager and he had them re balance the tires as specified on the signed purchase agreement.

Lee.

Yeah but the finish on the rim was already scratched and if it's to the bare aluminum it will corrode and spread like wild fire.
