thinking that ya need big, dumb, heavy wheels and tires is doin it wrong
I am going with one of the lightest wheels out there (rpf1) which I am sure is lighter then the stock 17x8 and just adding an inch to the width. the 265 should not be that mich heavier then the 235. So if anything it may be a bit lighter or right around the same weight
