Light weight tires...

Know there are a ton of threads on here with Jeepers talking about which tires they are running.... I hope this touches on one thing or two that most of those threads don't. Tire weight. I bring this up because my 4 CYLINDER is in desperate need for new tires. Im running 33/12.50/15 and i really like the look of the General red letters, I also was cruising around the web and looked at the Goodyear M/T and noticed a 20lbs difference in the two tires! ...that's a ton of weight for my little 2.5L! I haven had time to do anymore comparisons to other tires then just those two, but it made me wonder what others thoughts were and what tires other 4 cyl jeeps were running. Has anyone even ever considered the weight of there tires? ...I personally would love to go bigger and up to 35's on my jeep, but I just know that little motor and drivetrain couldn't handle it, unless there is a really light weight tire or brand out there?!?!?!?

based on 33/12.50/15 here are some tire weights...
Eldorado MTZ sport - 52lbs
Goodyear Duratrac - 49lbs
BFG A/T - 53lbs
BFG MT - 58lbs
Dick Cepek Crusher - 58lbs
Dick Cepek Mud Country - 57lbs
Dunlap Mud Rover - 53lbs
General Grabber Red Letter - 69lbs (wow!)
Goodyear MT/R - 60lbs
Yokohama Geolander - 51lbs

....how significant is this weight when you multiply it by 4 tires and consider it "rotating mass"??
