    In the absence of anything to weigh it with I am trying to find out how heavy my spare wheel and tyre is, its just a normal Fiat 15" steel wheel with a 215/70 R15 C tyre.
    Does anyone have this information handy at all? I would be ever so grateful!

    i recall somebody mentioning 26kg but couldnt say for sure. all i can say is that it feels much heavier when it pouring with rain, cold and windy and youre trying to swap out the spare because you got a puncture

    The BIG one is spot on. It's 26.2 KG. I weighed mine before putting on the tow bar.
