Spare Tire Weight !!!!
 
So the other day I decided to do a little experiment. I took my spare tire out to find out how much it weighed, and it came in around 80lbs! I decided to keep it off the truck and see if my gas mileage improved and have been driving around with out it for about 2weeks. My gas mileage has improved slightly. Any who, I really like the way the spare looks and want to know if anyone has seen anything out there that looks like the spare. My other question is how much the regular running wheels and tires weigh?

I know a few JK overlander guys run these. I think they look good for those applications but on a WK it might look a little out of place. Either way, I know they can be had on ebay for pretty cheap too.

I just weighed a stock alloy wheel and new stock tyre to compare and it came in at 60 lbs. Quite a difference, the steels a third more. Am still thinking of running a full set on the Willys project though regardless.
