Stan's advertise 5 grams per rim? Real weight was 13 grams per rim.
One wrap or two, because the recommendation is two wraps. so, is it 13 gms or would it be 26 grams?

It’s 13 grams double wrap, per rim. Yes, 26 grams next to 10 grams.

Leave it in or take it out -
Debris that poked into the tire, causing goo to flow out that can't be easily removed nor is exposed. This is usually a bit of glass that breached the tire, then most of it was ground off as the tire turned. Should I go through the extra effort with a screw driver to get the bit out or just leave it in for the ride home?

Get the sharp/hard debris out or it’ll probably make the hole larger over time. Also how did it grind down to that point if you noticed the puncture and stopped in a reasonable amount of time.
