I posed this EXACT question for the same wheels, and I got some good answers. Try this....

One word of caution. I would keep looking for and find the highest quality wheels possible. I keep seeing these $700-$800 jobbers pop up, and I'm just not sure. I don't think we need to spend $7800 for the exact Porsche model, but there must be something between $700 and $7800.

Euro Wheels have a better good selection my 8x18 50et were 22 lbs; 8x10 47et were 26 lbs. Cost $899.

how heavy are we talking about? in terms of % weight addition?
Super lightweight aftermarket wheels can be in the high teens. Stock wheels (and good aftermarket) in the twenties. And some cheaper replicas can be in the thirties.

Weight, in this instance, is much more important than on most components - as it is: unsprung (handling), rotational (inertia - affects acceleration and braking), and even gyroscopic.

The 'search' function on this site will yield much info. Good luck.
