Ok guys, so this eco weight thing has me looking like a cracked out hypermiller! I'm going full aluminum to cut down on weight... need the lightest possible wheel set that could accommodate a 37" tire although ill likely only go 35s...just in case

Method 316 might be a good option. Very light weight, and budget friendly.

Pro Comp 7069, about 22 lbs. They poke out a little, which I'm not crazy about, but I got them because they were the lightest I could find,

Keep in mind that, especially when running large tires, wheel weight has very little impact on efficiency or power. The closer the weight is to the center, the less it matters (linear versus angular velocity etc). You are much better off saving weight on the tires.

I'm just cutting weight where I can and adding weight where I need to... knowing the extra weight of the diesel, im just cutting like a ho who ain't been paid
