No, it doesn't.

Stock steel rim for MCC Smart:

3 1/2J x 15" rim, for tire size 135/70R15
4 J x 15" rim for tire size 145/65R15
5 1/2 x 15" rim for tire size 175/55 R15

the rim only weighs 6 kg and rim and tire together 15 kg. (Hardly any differences in weight in the different sizes)

Wars too many, in was I.
