Same for fronts. 8 inch wide tread and 8.5 inch measuring corner of sidewall.

You know what, I am just going to buy a scale this weekend and I will post up the weight I got for fronts and rears With tires.
Well you asked about the stock turbo-style 17 inchers, which came in the 7.5 and 8 (front/rear) indicated. If you do have wider ones, then they're probably not the OEM wheels. What are your tire dimensions on the sidewalls?
