2017 Golf Wagon 4motion Highline
Looking at a SL55 in the parking lot the other day, I could not get over the size of the brakes and calipers and it got me thinking just how much do these things weigh? The huge 6-pot calipers alone looked heavy.
Taking the new E63 as an example, just how much could the wheels + tires + brake discs and calipers weigh?
Front brakes - 14.2" discs, 6-pot calipers
Front wheels - 18" x 8.5"
Front tires - 245/40ZR-18
Rear brakes - 13" discs, 4-pot calipers
Rear wheels - 18" x 9"
Rear tires - 265/35ZR-18
