In this paper, we consider the weighted integral system involving Wolff potentials in $R^{n}$: \begin{eqnarray} u(x) = R_1(x)W_{\beta, \gamma}(\frac{u^pv^q(y)}{|y|^\sigma})(x), \\ v(x) = R_2(x)W_{\beta,\gamma}(\frac{v^pu^q(y)}{|y|^\sigma})(x). \end{eqnarray} where $0< R(x) \leq C$, $1 < \gamma \leq 2$, $0\leq \sigma < \beta \gamma$, $n-\beta\gamma > \sigma(\gamma-1)$, $\gamma^{*}-1=\frac{n\gamma}{n-\beta\gamma+\sigma}-1\geq 1$. Due to the weight $\frac{1}{|y|^\sigma}$, we need more complicated analytical techniques to handle the properties of the solutions. First, we use the method of regularity lifting to obtain the integrability for the solutions of this Wolff type integral equation. Next, we use the modifying and refining method of moving planes established by Chen and Li to prove the radial symmetry for the positive solutions of related integral equation. Based on these results, we obtain the decay rates of the solutions of (0.1) with $R_1(x)\equiv R_2(x)\equiv 1$ near infinity. We generalize the results in the related references.
