Any info on 1st gen civic hybrid wheels? weight, value.

I've decided that with 13" tires getting harder to find that I should start to search in an upgraded set of wheels for my civic VX, so I posted a want ad for civic hx, civic hybrid, or Honda Insight wheels and someone responded wanting $280 for a set of Honda Civic Hybrid wheels.
I know that the civic hx and insight rims are both around 11 pounds per wheel, but I don't know the specs on the older civic hybrid wheels and what should they be worth? the price seems pretty average for junk yard prices at $50-100 per wheel, but the fact that I could get them all at once has some appeal.

I got Insight wheels for my snow tires for $50/ea. Two from a local junkyard that advertized on car-part.com, two from Fabio on this forum. If you don't mind damaged wheels, they're affordable.

The Civic Hybrid wheels seem as expensive as Insight wheels, and I presume the Insight wheels are lighter, since that car has 2/3 the curb weight of a Civic.
