Rim Weight

Anyone know the weight of the factory 15" steel rims on a Cobalt LT? I'm looking at maybe getting new rims, and want to get lighter ones to help fuel economy...

OH and if any has any suggestions of cheaper light rims, they are welcome too!

steel rims are steel rims...they're going to weigh the same. aluminum is the lightest wheel you can buy AFAIK. and you wouldn't see much if any difference in fuel economy.
