Ok this is what I have found so far. No one around me has anything really but I found one so here's the weight and here's a pic of it.

I think it's an Ecco but I could be wrong I weighed it and it was 19.5 lbs with a good accurate digital scale

Ok cool I wasn't sure if that was the case or not. The nearest place to have all the rims is Davies jeep but its 1.2 hrs away and I'm
Not going unless I'm buying haha. I have another yard calling me when they get the gambler wheels off a xj that just came in so I might get those and or just weigh em.

He laughed when I asked him if it be alright if I weighed them and not buy them. He was like uhm ya?!? Idk haha

The Grizzley is a 15 x 7 cast alum wheel. It probably weighs same as Ecco because same size and material.

That's a huge difference. If that is correct, it's a strong argument for aluminum wheels.

Okay so I did some weighing. My 31x10.5 R15 BFGoodrich KM 2 weigh 44 lbs brand new. So when I weighed the tire and rim my total weight was 71lbs. So the steelies weigh about 26-27 lbs. give or take .5 lbs because my km2s are about 60%

So ill round down and say 26lbs for the steelies. So when I get these grizzlies today ill weigh them. Hopefully they will be around 19lb and with 5 I can save about 35lbs total and 28 in driveline rotational mass
