Does anybody know the difference in weight between 18x38 inch pressed steels and aluminum wheels?

I saw a set of these rims. They was on an Oliver 88 this summer at a pull in Central Illinois (southeast of Springfield, Illinois). When I asked about them, they were mounted tubeless and DID weigh 68 lbs each. I know Cale and did't know he was making them, but that's who did the set I saw. They looked like a very well made set. That day I saw them make 2 passes, 4000 open and 4500 open. Cale does good work. His cell is 618-830-4992. Maybe call him yourself and just ask...

I have the wheels you saw in my shop now. They are on a set of single vs that I just cut. Don"t know what they weigh, but they are very light. They feel like aluminum when you roll them around.I have pictures, but I can"t get them on here. Look nice and are very light. Hope this helps, Lincoln Andrews, Traction Unlimited
