Default Weight of the stock 16" wrx wheels

I've tried searching and can't find it. Would like to get aftermarket wheels but want something that weighs the same or a little less. Also does anyone know the weight of the legacy BBS style wheels?
Those should fit the WRX.

I know they are light.

My stock wheels with 225/50R16 Kumho 712s weigh slightly less than my Rota Tarmacs with 225/45R17 Yokohama ES100s.

I'm guessing the stock wheels weigh about 16 lbs.

Yup, it's 16lbs.... It's funny you ask cause I received a take-off rim and decided to put it on the electronic bathroom scale cause I wanted to know myself...

And it said 16lbs....
