I got the best of both worlds. I shed a lot of weight per corner AND went up in diameter. Now I get better MPG from less mass and better MPG on the highway by running lower RPMs. On top of all the other little fine tuning and upkeep I did when I got this Pickup I can easily hit 20-25% above EPA. Only issue is Winter. I drop down to about EPA or a hair under then.

Yea I loved how the 285's looked but this time around i wanted to see how they would do in our crappy winters...not only that the 265's were a good deal cheaper. We'll see how it goes

So were the 285s E rated and 265s C?

Did you weigh the Hase Spec wheels? From what I read, they are over 20 lb each.

Volk TE37 for our trucks is about 16 lb. Konig Countersteer Off Road measured 18 lb on my bathroom scale. It would take a lot more $$$$ to reach 14 lb.

Rule of thumb for unsprung weight is 1:3.

There is no way the hase specs are over 20lbs each. I got the 15lb info from JdMeF9SiR2 , where I got the wheels from. He seems to know a bit about wheels since he sells a ton of the Konig Countersteers on the forum. I went from 285 e load to 265 c load. We measured the weight and the difference on the tire switch was exactly 13lbs difference for each tire.

Yea, thats for the weds hase clone. I have the original weds hase wheels. And copies are almost always heavier. Hence why original wheels like weds cost more than clones.

^You are not reading it correctly. He's saying the Weds Hase clone is less than 20 lb, lighter than the original.

The Weds Hase Spec is still a cast wheel (http://www.wedswheelsna.com/weds/wed...ure/hase-spec/), which keeps the price reasonable at $1600 for the set. Forged Rays wheels would be about twice that.

Well you're right. Looks like 15lbs was a "typo"
