Weight difference

Does anybody know the weight difference between a 33x12.50x15 and
33x10.50x15? I'm trying to choose which one I want to put on my tj.

Depends on the tire... most tire sites list the weight of the tire

Tire rack has tire weights. They list the difference between Goodrich mud terrain t/a tires as 9lbs between the 10.5 and 12.5 tires.

I would be more concerned in the gear ratio to turn those 33's than the weight of them. 4.10 for those tires.

I have 4.10's is that not good? From the gear charts I have looked at they all say 4.10's are a good choice.

The 2.5 5 speed has 410/411 from the factory...
You'd need 456 for 31's
Ans 488 for 33's

I have 31's on my 2.5 and its slightly under powered on hills. But other than that its fine. You'd want to regear for 33's

I'm running the equivalent of a 33/9.5 tire with a 2.5 with 4:10s

It is not as bad as you think, but i definitely have to use more clutch to start moving. I live in flatland Chicago area, so I don't really have hills to worry about, but i was doing 75 on the highway yesterday no problem in fifth. As long as there is no wind and or hills, you are A-OK!
