As posted earlier I'm getting ready to get bigger tires.
I'd like to know if anyone knows the approx weight difference between 31x10.5x15 and a 35x12.5x15
and
the weight difference between the stock aluminum 15x8 wheel and a 15 x 10 aluminum or steel wheel.
Thanks for the help!

Depending on the brands each 35" tire will be about 25 lbs heavier vs a 31", 8" to 10" on the rim will add about 5 lbs. per rim.

I can tell you that the 35"s I will be putting on are 66 lb. They are Pro Comp 35/12.5/17

Most tire company websites have a "spec" catagory that will tell all of the dimensions and weight of their tires. Remember the larger diameter will reduce your torque if this is a consideration.
