Yeah they aren't too shaby. Lol. Last pictures shows a weight of 18.2 lbs for the 8.5 and the 9.5 is 18.4 lbs. at the shop now getting mounted. I'll post some comparison weight pics with the PSS mounted vs the factories later today.

Holy crap!! Tires mounted and I just weighed the stock rims with the RTF's.. 56.6 on the rears and 54 lbs on the fronts!!! That's a decent savings I think. I'm pretty happy with that . I'll post pics in the morning when my battery recovers

Still haven't had a chance to get some decent pics, but here's a few that I took the other night with my phone. Tires are and wheels are a perfect fit.
