Default how accurate is the weight that rota tells us?

hey, all who have rota's. did your wheels weight what you were told they were going too? i ask this because i haven't really looked into many rota's because of their usual heavy weight (usually between 18-20 pounds). but recently one of my friends bought some rota circuit 8's for his civic and was told they would weight between 12 and 13 pounds each and the turned out to be around 9 pounds each (this is for a 15 inch rim). just wondering if it might be true for us too...

Rota says the tarmac 2 is like 19 or 20lbs......when it was shipped to my house....UPS sticker says 17lbs on it.

However, I have swtiched back to my stock 16's for the winter...for some reason, gas mileage is much better now.
