Weight - Cragar Steel Wheels?

I just got my Cragar Soft 8 steel wheels yesterday. They feel so heavy? I have been running the Stock 16 x 7 Jeep wheels with 33 inch Nitto Terra Grappler tires.

Anybody know how much more the steel wheels weigh over the stock wheels? I read something on here a few weeks ago about how much weight you can hang on the stock JK spare tire mount on the tailgate?

Am I going to notice the weight difference going from stock to Steelies?

Thanks in advance.

Ive got 285/75 - 16.

I currently have the tires mounted on the Stock 16 x 7 wheels, but the tire is rounding out due to the wheel being only 7" narrow, I am going to move the tires onto the new 16 x 8 steel Cragar wheels.
