light tire brands

basically out of all the tire brands that there are, what are some of the more light ones? I've been reading that some tire brands are heavier than others, so was just wondering.

Rims I'm getting are a bit on the heavy side so I'd like some lighter tires to even thngs out.

I heard bfgoodrich and stuff is pretty heavy, what about lighter ones?

... or does it even matter what brand they are? maybe it just depends on the trend width they have, all-season vs summer ?

Michelins are usually lighter than most other brands from what i know. It really differs from size to size though so you'd have to look it up on lets say tirerack. I must say though that if the 1-3lbs really makes a difference to you than you should probably look into driving formula1
