Anyone know the weight of the stock 16" steel JK wheels?
 
Has anyone weighed the stock 16" steel wheel and tire combination as used on the JK? Or know what it is total? I ordered 5 Goodyear Duratrac 285/70R17s (53lbs ea) mounted on 5 XD Addict 17x9 rims (25.8lbs ea) which totals 78.8 lbs each wheel. I am trying to compare how much weight I might be gaining with the new wheels I have on order. Note that I dont have my new Jeep in from the factory yet or I would weigh them myself.:) Thanks for any insight!

I've been searching for hard specs weight wise on the oem steelies, but this has proven elusive to me. The oem tires would be 225/75R16 and they spec out at 27 lbs a piece per the Tire Rack website, this means I'm gaining 26 lbs per tire aftermarket. Now if only we could figure out the oem rims weight:confused:

My stock rubicon wheel/tire 255/75/17 weighed exactly 71lbs if that helps any.

An equally interesting comparison, puts me at 7.8 lbs per wheel heavier than a stock Rubi. Thanks!
