    I'm just curious. I just "upgraded" to bfg all terrains at 265/75r16 and I have the l4 engine, and i've really noticed a performance loss. Just wondering how much the steelies weigh so when I get new wheels I'll be sure to get lighter ones...if that'll even make a difference.

    I think you are noticing a drop in performance more so because it's a bigger tire, and take more power to get it rolling!

    Just one of the reasons I'm glad i went with the V6 and Manual. the gears on the manual are a little shorter..i think than the auto

    Yes agreed. The size of the tire is very much a large part of the performance loss, but if I decrease the weight of the wheel, it will only help. So does anybody know!?

    I am in the same boat and chris told me 33-35#. I am not sure if that is the stock rim, or the rim/tire combo

    So, if chris4x4 is right, which I'm sure he is and by applying process of elimination I'm guessing the stock wheels weigh about 33-35# awesome.
