What does your wheel and tire combo weight?

It's been snowing and raining for the last few days. Decided to switch the new 9" PitBull Growlers to the back again for winter....... While I was at it I borrowed two plain analog scales to weight my wheels and tire combo.

26x9" all four on front factory 12" aluminum wheels weigh 34-35 lbs depending on the scale used. Their was no weight difference between the new or older 2700mile tires... Average 34.5lbs

26x11" on rear factory 12" aluminum wheels are 41-42lbs With 2700 miles. Average 41.5 lbs

So my skinny /wide set up weighs 152lbs total including wheels.

My square skinny set up is 138 lbs total with wheels

Definitely a sportier over all feel! Probably combination of slightly smaller diameter vs bit less weight vs less over all rubber contact to the ground.

It's also a brutally capable set up. Already drove them threw some nasty swamps, mud, skeg, snow, ice, many frozen hills etc..., Man I love my PitBull Growlers!!!

It looks like you got it pretty stuck. Your windshield makes me think of C.H.I.P.S. and Ponch or John should be riding it.

One good thing about heavier tires is it lowers your center of gravity.
