Yeah, just 12 lbs, which is why I have been after them for years. More LRR tire selection when picking 15" tires. I now have the lightest 13" rims ever put on an OEM (VX rims) and possibly the lightest 15" rims ever put on an OEM (maybe). But the extra bonus was the tires. Two tires on these rims are LRR and in excellent shape. All four tires were in excellent shape.

I am modding the face of the wheels for a stealth smooth wheel. Will show when done. Hope it works

Totally. 16" is getting into some big metal discs for these little engines.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
