What do your tire and wheel combo weigh?

I'll start this off in an effort to help those buying tires to get some real feed back from everyone.

Maxxis Bighorn (originals) 26x9x14 mounted on front on ITP 212 ss with 5+3 backspacing. Weight 34 lbs.
Good tires with lots of traction over stock. Climbs rocks very well, does better than average in mud pits, but sucks in the sand pushing through corners and digging in to fast.

Skat Trak Extremes 26x12x12 mounted on Douglas 12x10" rims. Weight 20 Lbs.
New haven't tested yet

AMS Black Tail 27x9x12 mounted on Douglas 12x8" rims. Weight 18 lbs.
New haven't tested yet

Stock Maxxis front tires. Weight 29lbs.
Stock Maxxis rear tires. Weight 33 lbs.
good all around tire. not as sticky as the bighorns in the rocks. Easier steering control, not as apt to grab a root vs. Bighorns. Much easier to slide in dirt or grass. If you like to power slide stick with the stockers.


Haven't weighed my rear Bighorns yet, but will post as soon as I can. This was done on a bathroom scale, so don't bust my balls for being off an ounce or two. I pumped to try the lighter paddles in the sand. Last time with the heavy bighorns I got up to 53 mph on some firm sand. 49 mph just cruising in regular sand.
Let everyone know the weight of your set up and what you like or dislike about them.

08 Teryx Fundy Std Bore Kit, HMF Slip on Duals, Hunterworks carb kit and filter, CDI, 14" Bighorns with ITP 212 wheels, Renegade seats, 26x12x12 9 paddle Extremes and Douglas 10" Wheels, AMS Blacktail on stk Wheels, Radio, Mirror, Custom front bumper and 4 seat cage being built.
