WXman Just to confirm what has already been said, now that I have a '12 with the 17" wheels and GY tires I threw one on my scales and it was 62 lbs. brand new. Not bad at all for a tire/wheel combo that's in the 32" class. I guess that's why I'm getting close to 20 MPGs out of this thing.

Speedo was re-calibrated with a AEV Procal, I also calculated manually to verify in the beginning. I have a Rubicon so the Nitto's (just under 46 lbs) weigh less than the stock BF Goodrich tires (48 lbs), but not less than the Goodyears. They also have a more pavement friendly tread. I didn't actually use a scale I just went by the manufactures specs. It is also going to depend on what gears/transmission you have in yours.

The stock 17" wheel is about 25 lbs. The stock Good-for-a-year tire is 36 lbs. The stock BFG KM tire is 48 lbs. So you're looking at 61 lbs. for a Sport, 73 lbs. for a Rubi.

FWIW... I've run multiple wheel/tire combos on my JKU over the past year and have logged all my mileage and going from the stock setup to an aftermarket alloy with 33" tires cost me about 2-3 miles per gallon, which is about $40/month for the average driver. That's a pretty steep penalty to pay if your JK is a daily driver.
Good catch. I guess I just recalled wrong or fat fingered it. I got 59 pounds.
This tire has about 30000 miles of travel so maybe 2 pounds off from new would be about right.

I stand corrected.

cmgrant Well I don't know about the sports but, the factory 17" Rubi wheels weight around 24lbs. The tires you can look up on the manufacturer website. My Wheel/Tire combo ended up being about 2lbs heavier than stock.
