15 steel wheel weight vs 15 alloy

Hi i know the alloy is about 15 pounds do you guys know how much more the steel is? Thinking about the 17 eap from tirerack at 20 pounds and was wondering if they way that much more then my steels. I have a 2000 and 2007 zx3 and new to focus fanatics also have a 06 stang gt vert. thanks
