    Anybody know what the weights of the stock wheels are?
    Particularly interested in the difference between the 18" steels and 18" TRD.
    Thanks

    I've always wondered what the weight difference is between a new tire and the same tire at the Tread Wear Indicators. I know, tangent.

    Not sure about the steel wheels, but I am pretty sure the 18' TRD wheels weigh 35lbs and the stock 275/65-18 Michelins weigh 40lbs.

    31lbs, thanks.
    Just trying to figure out the lightest combo.
    I need LT tires but want to maintain ride quality/braking/MPG as much as possible.

    I hear ya. I'm actually removing my 295/70/18 Ridge Grapplers and Methods to put stock TRD (powdercoated black like Pro wheels) wheels and probably some 275/65/18 Falken Wildpeak tires. The additional weight really affected my towing experience which is the primary use of my truck and it's just not worth it. They look badass but I've been offroad (gravel roads...) 2 times in the year since I installed them.

    In LT275/70-18:

    Michelin LTX AT2 60lbs
    BFG KO2 57lbs
    Michelin Defender LTX MS 51lbs

    Which is why I'm leaning toward the Defender. They will give the smoothest and quietest ride, best MPG/braking/acceleration, and most likely last the longest.
    98/2% on/off road and it's a no brainer for my application. Ain't too worried about how aggressive my tires look. :)

    I've already decided on the Defenders, for summer tires. I have two complete sets of wheels, so I have a studded snow for the winter.

    Bumping this. I currently have brand new tires on the 18" steel wheels and I'm looking for the lightest/cheapest wheel that looks a little better without breaking the bank.
