I think the Moral of the story is: If you change Wheel and tire size, ensure everything else on your jeep supports it. Height, rubbing, weight, axles, drive lines, etc. In other words "Dont jack your JL up 6 inches with some 40's and no other mods to support, you wont like it and will suffer the ramifications.

I put together a worksheet to try to determine some of the weights and costs of some 37s I then calculated a formula based on weight and price to get an idea of value per lb of lightness. The Coursers are by far the lightest, but I know almost nothing about them. The Patagonias are light and cheap, but I've heard of quite a few issues with them. Yokohama is a brand that I've known some folks to run and I'm considering them the most right now. 76 per tire is still pretty light.

Btw, my brother had a set of those Mastercraft Courser MTs and loved them. They were on his YJ. He didn´t do any heavy off-roading, though, so I doubt we could speak to durability, but I´ve never heard of anyone complaining about them, either.

WTH with the Nitto Mud Grappler? I can´t imagine what they are doing with their construction that weighs so darned much.

Even with a Diesel power plant weight was a huge factor for me since I'm already pushing that much more engine/exhaust weight from a standstill over the 3.6/2.0 which is why initially I went with take-off rubicon wheels and 33" Toyo ATIII since the Mopar diesel lift wasn't out yet. So far I've liked the ATIII's even though they weren't my first choice (Geolander X-AT were but they are comically heavy) however being patient and running through a set of 33's is letting me see how the mechanics of the new engine shake out before I do the major upgrades I have planned like a full undercarriage aluminum skid plate, lift, and finally upgrade to 34's.

How have the AT3s treated you? I think they're up next for me. I see that they have a 35x11.50x17 in a load range C that's comparable in weight to a KO2.

They’re not bad. I did a road trip from LA to Denver and back and they were great on road with wind noise drowning out tire noise. Only did a gravel trail to get to a campsite and a proper 5 mile stretch of trail to get to another with only complaint being that the treads won’t really eject rocks until you’re either at highway speeds or pick them out yourself.

I only have 4k miles on them right now so no clue how they will be in a year or two but for now I’d have no problem sticking with the AT3’s when it’s time to upsize... unless of course the X-AT’s start coming in C load range by then.

I went with Duratracs 35 . They are one of the lightest. Almost kept my stock wheels because they are very light, but changed my mind and bought AEV when they were on sale.
