Weight of 15" Alcoas?

Hey everyone, I really like the look of Alcoas however I am wondering about weight. My truck came standard with 14's which sucked but then I got a great deal on some 15' steel wheels that have the chrome cover. I was curious to find out if the weight of the alcoas are going to be lighter than the steel ones and if someone actually had numbers not just "of course alloy is lighter than steel" comments.

Anyone?
