    I've only managed it once full lock with the wheel stuffed, it grabbed the mud flap... but my old 285s rubbed all the time... these don't.

    The wheels, not the tires lol

    I have heard 30 pounds but that seems high, considering the stock TRD Off Road wheels are 22 lbs.

    i would guess they wiegh in around 25 at most without the tires or lugs on them. they aren't that heavy at all. with the tires (the toyos are pretty darn heavy) it comes in around 60ish... i would guess. they aren't light.

    hence why they're called pizza cutters :D haha

    Always hot AUX plug. Wet Okole's. 33" tires.
    I LOVE my 255 km2's. Everyone says they are not good on snowy/icy roads, but the last two days proves them wrong. Next test... SAND!

    They're not bad in sand but they do sink deep, no float like the wider tires.

    ^^ I believe I dipped down as low as 12psi for Pismo and its soft sand. Wouldn't even dream of going lower.

    I've gone to 16 in the sugary sand of Florida. Not bad, typical sand driving.

    ^^ You get stuck anytime? I thankfully didn't, but had a close call or two. I'm also heavily armored underneath, so weight was a concern.

    No issues, it did sink and wallow a few times but nothing out of the ordinary for our sand.

    So just curious, I've searched, but not many people run this size tire it seems, but what mpg do you all average? I have my lift kit sitting in my kitchen for the past week "driving my wife nuts btw lol" and will be installing it on Tuesday, and getting bfgoodrich mud terrain km2's installed on Friday. No I'm not worried about the mpg, just want to budget for it. I drive about 20k a year for my job. Thanks in advance for the replies.
