Weighed the 35x12.5 r17 General X3's

This has probably been posted before but figured it may still help someone out. A few weeks ago I bought a set of 35x12.5 General Grabber X3 and threw them on the scale to see what they weighed. Came out to right about 75 lbs. each.

Heavy tire! But I'm happy with how they ride on the road and, in my case, they balanced well too.
I haven't had a chance to take them off-road but hoping to take a trip within a few weeks.

That's one of the reasons I went with the Mastercraft Courser MXT's. They only weigh around 52 lbs for a 35 X 12.5 tire. I was concerned about the extra weight when going to big tires as it accelerates wear on the ball joints and brakes. I even looked at the new, I believe it was Falcon tire and it weighed almost 95 lbs in that size. I did have the Generals on my old Durango. Liked them in the summer and deeper snow but they were really slick on roads with just a lite covering. Once the snow got deep they were great.. Just my .02

I have never heard of a 35" tire weighing 95lbs.

mastercraft shows the mxt in that size weighing 63lbs. I would be leary of a 35x12.5-17 that only weighed 52lbs it would have to be pretty thin rubber as that is close to a stock tire weight.

My other vehicles can't handle any winter weather whatsoever so I'm hoping these do well in the snow.

I was going to go with the Courser MXT's as well. Almost pulled the trigger but found an excellent deal on the Generals so that's why I went that route. Under normal circumstances though it seems for the money you can't beat the MXT's.

Omg 52lbs?!?!? That's less than the lightest 35" for 15" rims. C rated sidewall or d?

I just looked and stand corrected they are 63 lbs. Been a while since I looked at the stats.

Closest 35” to 95lbs I’ve seen is the Pitbull Rocker at 86lbs. 92lbs for their 37x12.50x17. But then Pitbulls are known to be true to size. And size matters. Here’s brand new 37x12.50x17 Mastercraft beside a well used 37x12.50x17 Pitbull Rocker

Yes, the Mastercraft looks like a 35” compared to the 37” Pitbull yet they are the same numerical size.

Nah, they are almost identical in height. Use the scroll feature against the upper and lower window edges, maybe 1/4" diff. The Pitbull has some miles on it though.

Those Pitbulls have 60,000klm on them at that point and they have less pressure then the Mastercrafts. There was about an inch difference in total height at that time, when we measured them.
