Looking for Lightweight wheel and tire combo

I'm going to be running about 430 hp (hopefully more soon) and a well tuned suspension with air bumps and remote reservoir shocks. I'm looking for tires in the 33-35" range. I have 4.56 gears and the 6 speed. I like going fast and impressive acceleration.

I have some stock 16" sport wheels and 17" Rubicon wheels to possibly use

These sound light and they're 15's that fit the JK http://www.discounttiredirect.com/di...D=vc4fmso04s6q

One of the best tires that get great reviews and are lighter than most are the Duratracs.

Does anyone know of a wheel and tire combo that weighs less than the 33" Duratrac on the 15" Level 8 tracker? No smaller than 33"

I'm running 33/12.5/15 Duratracs on Level 8 Punch wheels. One thing I noticed immediately was that there feels like some flex in the tires on the highway. I'm used to it now, but you might want to look for a tire with firmer sidewalls if you like to drive fast on the highway. I believe the Duratracs have 2 ply sidewalls.
