Generally if its a split (and most large schmidt wheels are), the weight is usually more than a single piece wheel

Without tyres the Aristos weigh about 12.3 kgs

Does the 24kgs include a tyre?

A tyre weighs around 8-9 kgs
yes the wheel and tyre /bolts balanced 215x35x18 yokos weigh 24kgs.. so it looks as iif there yr heavier which is not good news as i dont want to comprimise the handling - unsprung weight, steering etc..
