How much do they weigh

For the life of me, I cant decide if I want to go with a set of Crager Eights or a set of alloy wheels for my JK Unlimited. I have seen many reviews where everyone states they love the Cragers, but not all are happy with how much weight they add to the vehicle, and sometimes rust. I am torn, I love the price and looks of the Cragers, but if the weight will affect my jeep, I dont want them. I have been trying to find on many web sites the difference in weights between the all steel and alloy wheels, but I have had no luck. Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Pros and cons, if any.

Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything

If you really want to go retro, buy wooden wheels.

Me, I'd go with the aluminum alloys (and I have).

Reasons: light weight, won't bend, beadlockable if you ever want.

If funding is an issue, keep the stockers and wait.

Just my friendly 2 cents.

Thanks for the reply, I am leaning towards the alloys, but I see the cragers everywhere
