Tire weight, rim width

I looked through older tire threads, but never saw this covered.

How much does a 33x15.5x15 Swamper SX weigh, then a 33x12.5x15 TSL?
The rims I want, MT classic locks(3 5/8" backspace) or the classic II's(3 5/16"backspace), 15x10, or 15x8, depending on tire width, weigh ~21 pounds.

All this will be going on a '54 3B that will be recieving 3" Black Diamond springs in addition to 1/2" shackles. Right now I have 33x12.5 mud kings on narrow wagon wheels(I pretty sure way narrower than 8", because they suck the tires in way more than the 7.5" factory wheels on my bronco did) The jeep currently has 1/2" shackles and busted ass original springs.


(Fawk off, it's the best you can get in east texas, its flat as runover shit here )

How it sits currently, but doesn't really show the lean from the worn out springs

Also, how much weight would the stock axles take? I'm not planning on going hardcore with it(at least not with the stock axles). But I'm thinking the SX's would be too wide and heavy
