thanks or taking the time to weigh them. The 16" rear mag is the same weight as the 18" spokes with steel, both with tires. The tube (1lb) made the spoked wheel heavier.

I'm not sure I follow.    I didn't weigh my 16" rear mag which currently has no tire.  I weighed the 18" mag with tire.  I can weigh the 16' mag tonight.  I can also weigh a new tire and figure out the wheel/tire weight.   Now I'm curious about the difference in the 16" vs 18" mag weight, not that it'll matter much.

16 is smaller than 18.  ;)

But is the 16 inch tire heavier since there is more sidewall? Diameter is very close to the same size.

More mock up.  Rear wheel spacers and caliper aren't correct yet but it's pretty close.  Front will need either an axle I don't seem to have found in my stuff yet or a different hub that will fit the 17mm front axle I have for those forks.  Also because of the frame stand, it's not sitting at ride height either.  Still, I'm digging where I think it will end up.  Pretty sure I'll setup both front discs too.
