Default Weights of Factory Wheels?

Anyone ever weigh their factory wheels?? (without rubber) I'm kind of curious on the approximate weight of each style...

Your crosslaces are quite different than the 92-99'*.

I'd also have a hard time believing torque stars weigh only 12 pounds. They should be heavier than the crosslace.
