i dont know exact weights but i held my stock 16" wheel in one hand and held my 17" wheel in the other and you could tell quite a bit of difference.

but as a matter of performance, i really doubt that it would make that much of a difference.

I have some 17's for the summer and the stock 16's for the winter. With the stocks I have 205 55 16 tires and the 17's have 215 45 17. I think the wheel and tire, my 17 are about 3lbs lighter per wheel.
