    Right now i am running 295/70/17 toyo mt's. I am thinking about getting a 6 inch lift and running 35's, but dont wanna regear right now.

    So im wondering what a a lighter tire is, one that maybe weighs the same as a 35" as my 33.5s toyo's.

    any input is appreciated.

    Tirerack.com Pick the tire you like and size. It'll tell you the weight in their specs tab. They are pretty accurate.

    My 35" KM2s(D range) and MTRs (C range) both weigh 64lbs. Toyos are the heavier of tires so pretty much anything besides a bogger will be lighter.

    As he said ^^^ Toyos are heavy suckers compared to most others!

    i was looking at 35" KM2's, ive gotten 35k+ miles on my toyos and i love em, theyre just too heavy for me to go 35's and not regear. how do my 295/70/17 toyos compare to 35x12.5 R17 Km2's

    My KM2 35x12.5R18 measured 34.8x12". They run a little narrower than the claimed 12.5".

    Toyo 72.8 lbs.... checking the other.... brb again
    KM2 30.11 lbs. This seems low but both numbers came from the manufacturers' web site.

    Doesn't look like they post weights on their site. Will take a bit more digging.

    Nitto is a sister company of Toyo. So their tires will be very similar. In other words they'll weight close to the same as the Toyo MT's. 78lbs to be exact.

    I recommend the Good Year Wrangler MT/R tires. You live in the same conditions as me and I've been very happy with the tires. They're light, strong, air down nicely, and do great in snow.

    64 lbs. I'm getting bored of this game.

    Also found a different spec for the KM2 that says 68 lbs. Sounds much better than the 30 that BFG had on their own site.
