I'll look for that one.

I tried to look up the weight of those Firestone Firehawk SZ50 runflat tires but they don't seem to be made in those sizes.

http://www.bridgestonetire.com/tires...Product_ID=217

P245/45ZR17 89Y Y BW 080489 7.5-9.0 8.0 25.7 9.6 7.4 11.9 10.0 811 504 29 340 AA A

P275/40ZR18 94Y Y BW 080470 9.0-11.0 9.5 26.7 10.9 8.6 12.3 10.0 783 487 34 340 AA A

I think they are factory C5 tires.

Hmm. Added those tires, but maybe we can get some clarification on Scott's.

Scott: are you sure those aren't Wide Ovals? They make that tire in those sizes.

That's what I was thinking.

Interesting to have the tire weight, subtract it and see how accurate other wheel weight posts are.

If I recall correctly, they discontinued the SZ50's that I have about 2 years ago. The sizes that I gave are correct...but they are not run-flats. The rears are labelled SZ50 EP's, but that's the only change from what I stated before.

Rear knuckle assy with hub - 23.46 lbs.
Toe rod assy - 6.64 lbs.
"C" beam for M6 - 7.86 lbs.
LT1 A/C condenser - 8/44 lbs.
Base '95 Vert rear spring, code "NYR" - 7.30 lbs.
Short "dogbone" - 1.28 lbs.
Long "dogbone" - 1.36 lbs.
Weight saved by using Z28 direct thottle cable - 5.80 lbs.

Anyone know what a 1989 Coupe weights? I plan to put it on a trailer and pull it a back of my motorhome to drive it where ever I park the RV.

'89 should be close to this page I saved on my '88.

Mine was 3150 IIRC with A/C but the spare tire and radio/speakers removed. Quarter tank and no driver. I'll reweight it soon now that A/C is gone.

Also of note the C5 thin spokes are shown at 20 lbs IIRC in the C5 thread but I weighted them several times and keep getting 18 on my bathroom scale. I included the part number in the other weight thread in case weights were compared for a different/same part number. IIRC there were several makers for the wheels and there may be different part numbers with different weights.

18 lbs silver c5 rear thin spoke 18x9.5" #9593799
A/c system can't weigh that much! I've lifted my whole system out and its at the most 20-25lbs

Maybe it changed over the years? IDK. If I get another weight I'll post it up!

You should note the weight by year.

Also you should ask for this to be moved to tech, and made a sticky.

How did you weigh the compressor, condenser, evaporator plus shroud, lines, accumulator, and bracket, all attached to each other?
