Tire weight

Hey guys im looking at getting some new tires before the snow flies up north here. These RT/S wranglers are junk

Im a bit concerned about tire weight tho

Im looking to get a set of 265/75/16's... i want something that is good quality.
Ive been looking at the BFG AT's... i was told they weigh about 33lbs each
Then i looked at the nokian Vatiiva's.... 42lbs each...

does anyone know where i can find variious tires and their weight?

I dont want to go from a 20lb tire to a 45lb tire.. that unsprung weight is going to kill power and mileage.

Search for your size, brand, and the weight is under Specs.

The weight difference wont be as bad for your V6 as it was for my I4..

well..im not sure about other tires...my general grabbers are 56 lbs a piece and lugs my 4.0 pretty badly...so you might want to stay away from them if thats your concern. On the other hand, these have been awesome tires on and off road
