Are they the same tires with the same tread life on them?

So... Swoops weigh 18.5 lbs and 5 spokers weigh 13.5 lbs. Are the 5 spokers the chrome "dog-legs" or the painted straight ones?

Huh. I figured the 5-spokes would be heavier. I coulda weighed two of my 5-spoke/P-Zeros today but didn't think about it.
