Really, what's your weight?

Just curious how much everyone's wheel and tire set up weighs. Wheels and tires? Aluminum? Steel? Beadlocked? Double beadlocked? What axle?

I want to see what/how much everyone is able to push with their set up. This may help others decide when upgrading. As tires and wheels get heavier, performance tends to decrease without changing expensive things. Ie. although I haven't re-geared, it may be a consideration in the future and to a better axle. Please share your info as I'm always curious what others are able to do and maybe what I can strive for. I'd also like to do one for overall rig weight :

Front & Rear axle: Stock '07 axle, 8.0 rear, 5AT gearing
Wheels: Method Roost 17x8.5 (25lbs)
Tires: Mastercraft MXT 37x12.50-17 (70lbs)
Combined: 95lbs!

Re: Really, what's your weight?

2013 stock alloy 28lbs, Cooper STT Pro 62lbs, LT285/70R17. 90lbs for one wheel x 5 = 450lbs

Not 100% sure of the stock alloys, 100% sure of the Coopers. Give me another pound for the alloys and I'll be in Cruiser Weight.

edit: Weighed Jade in current trim, full tank and 3 of us. 5500lbs

Jade -- 2013 Army Green AT Crawl -- US Offroad Winch Mount / Warn 10K synthetic -- BMC -- Light Racing Upper Control Arms -- Bilstein 6112 / OME rear springs / Bilstein 5100 -- Metal-Tech Red Eye Rear Bumper -- URD Stainless Exhaust -- Cooper STT Pro LT285/70R17 E / Factory Alloys -- Smittybilt Nerf Bars -- Diode Dynamics / Light Bar / HID / LEDS -- Springtail Solutions Side Rack -- Ellis Precision - Goodies -- Cobra 75 WX ST / Bandi / 3' Firefly -- Front Runner Storage Drawer

I have no clue. I can lift them and thats all that matters.

I`m going with this statement. They are heavy as hell but I can still lift them.....They get heavier everytime I rotate them

Denial. That's the best way to overcome obesity.

Pro Comp La Paz=31.5#
Yokohama Geolandar M/T G003-35X12.50R17=70.8#

Total=102.30#
Add the spare=511.50#

Think I need a diet.
