    I am looking to get new tires and was hopeing that I could find some weights on some bigger tires and rims so I know if I can turn em or not! I am mainly lookin at 39.5 TSLs and cheap steel wheels, but I would love to know the weights of some other big super swampers or boggers (ex: 38.5, 39.5, 42, 44)

    my 36" goodyears and steel wheels weigh 90lbs each

    My guess is about 35lbs per wheel and about 70 lbs per tire...
