Default Gen 4 only - 17" Factory Alloys vs Factory Steels Weight only

Hey guys, just looking for feedback from somebody who has done a swap, researched it or weighed them.

How much heavier can I expect the 17 x 7.5 factory steelies to be over the same size factory alloys which have come on the GLXs. Any hard numbers floating around?

Many thanks.

I've got a 17" set of steels with BFG KO2s and also the 18" allotys with road types on them. The difference was negligible when I weighed them a couple of years ago, I think from memory about 1 kg.
