I looked at the .pdf above and that size tire isn't listed. So I went to the Cooper site and it's listed but they don't have the weight specified there.

In answer to your question about differences in weight and their effects.

You've probably read stories here and elsewhere in which someone went up in tire and wheel size, and they complained that their truck felt sluggish, that it lost power. Larger components weigh more and when you add more unsprung weight out there at the corners, you affect your performance. If you can keep the increase on unsprung weight down, your truck won't feel like it's dragging a supertanker anchor.
