Default 17" GM aluminum wheel weight

Does anyone know how much a 17" X 7.5" GM aluminum wheel weighs? In particular, I'm interested in the 5 spoke wheel that comes on 2005+ Z71 Silverados. I've seen these wheels on a couple RCSB trucks and I thought they looked good. Any input would be appreciated.

I'll let you know when I get new tires. I recently bought a flawless set of Avalanche 17's with tires, only had 8k miles on the setup.

When I got my Escalade aluminum 17" wheels they weighed in around 22 to 23 pounds on the bathroom scale.

Thanks 04BlackSilverado. 23 lbs. is approx. what I expected. Wow, Element 80, stock 16" aluminum wheels weigh 19 lbs!?! According to the "tire and wheel weight thread" my stock chrome steel wheels weigh 29 lbs. Hmmm, I might consider some stock 16" aluminum wheels now. I could lose 40 lbs. just in wheel weight! As you can probably tell, I'm interested in performance rather than looks.
