I only casually looked at the weights when ordering my wheels and tires. They looked close so I didn't give it much thought. On closer look it looks like each wheel/tire combo is about 2.5lbs heavier than the stock setup. I guess that adds up! I'm sure the wider contact patch and slightly stickier "performance" tires add to it as well.
