I have the Mopar bead locks wheels with 35” Ridge Grapplers and they are heavy, they weigh in at 116 pounds each. I want to run a full size spare with a 35” tire and I don’t care if it matches the rest of my wheels. What do you guys recommend for the lightest possible combo?

315 /70 r17 Duratracs on stock Rubi wheels is the lightest combo I can think of.

Just ask @cosine he knows!
Might consider a thinner tire w/ the same diameter on those stock Rubi wheels to shave even more weight if you only plan on using this spare for short term duty.

Nice are the Duractracs lighter than the KO2's?

I did the stock Rubi wheels with 315/70/17 KO2's and I believe they weigh in at 88lbs a piece. I'm doing it off memory but I believe the wheels are 22lbs and the tires are 66lbs.

I think they are lighter. They weigh 61 lbs as per tire rack

FYI...Edge doesn't offer a beadlock...I inquired and they said they decided to not make it and have no plans to do so at this point.
you contacted them directly? i was at their wharehouse and held an Edge beadlock wheel in my hands. almost bought a set for my jeep, but went with the standard wheel instead due to cost. unless they have stopped making them.

Forgestar sent an email and they are stating that the wheel has been discontinued. Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear that we will be able to source this wheel from them and they are not planning to bring it back into production in the immediate future.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

Thank you,

thats too bad because it was lightweight for a beadlock. about 30lbs iirc. and pretty cheap at under $400 each.
