S3 Standard wheel weight?

Does anyone know the weight of the standard S3 wheels?
Im looking at options for new wheels and keep reading about the benefits of saving unsprung weight. I notice that very few wheel manufacturers publish the weight of their wheels, but it would be nice to at least have a starting weight on which to improve.
Many thanks.

These are the manufacturers to avoid then, as well as anyone selling counterfeit wheels.

Www.tirerack.com is a good resource for viewing various wheels on a car, and it details the various weights. You just have to covert from 'merkin to kg to be able to compare.
