Rim Question, 15" Tear Drops?

I thought the tear drop design rims only came in 16"

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Explo...QQcmdZViewItem

and does anybody know about how much each one of these alloys weigh?
I just wanna see if the alloys are lighter then my stock XLs,, which are 21lbs each,,


I cant make up my mind on what I wanna do next to my truck

The 95-98ish explorers used the 15" design, and I believe the ranger got the 16" teardrop rims in 2000.. it is slightly different looking but otherwise the same just bigger.

15" -


16" -

If only Ford had made the 16" with a 8 or 8.5" width with a nice little lip. See, I would never run any other rim if ford did that.
