I have 2 gates, one that is stock weight and one that I cut the top open and added about 100lbs of scrap plate steel I had laying around.

The heavy gate on and down changes the weight bias quite. 125% of the gates weight is seen on the rear tires while 25% of the gates weight come off the front tires. This is simply due to the weight being well behind the axle centerline, the leverage it has on the chassis.
