    First Thread Alert! :D

    Question: Does anyone know the wheel weight of the OEM 1st gen alloy wheels (16")? I have searched TW and can't find this information.

    [​IMG]

    Reason for asking: I have recently bought a 2003 2.7L 4 banger. I had BFG A/T KO's E rated on my Ferd 7.3L Diesel and loved them to death. There is no question, those are the tires I want, but I'm concerned with weight on the 4banger because the E tires are no doubt heavy. Could I loose some wheel/tire combo wieght by going to a lighter alloy wheel from the OEM? I have my doubts, but I thought I'd ask the experts! ;)

    By the way, my objective for the truck is to build a road trip machine with mild off-road capabilities.

    Thanks guys. Comments/advice welcome.

    Going with a diff. load rating will shave weight. You have no need for an "E" load rating with a 2.7l IMO.

    To my knowledge, which I may be wrong...the 265/75/16 size BFG All Terrain only comes in E.

    Sorry man, I realized I typed incorrectly. I am interested in 265/75/16. You quoted me as I edited.

    Bump. Can anyone tell me if aftermarket alloys are significantly lighter than OEM 16" wheels pictured in 1st post? Say Pro comp 7032, or 7089 in same size?

    I have also considered going to a 17" wheel so I can run 245/75/17 which I like. Anybody see any problems with that?

    Thanks for all the comments btw.
