Who has M-Contour fakes? (archive)

I am considering getting these for my '90 535i. The bolt pattern is 5x120, so I should be ok there. The size (17x8) is okay too. I should be able to swing the offset as well.

The thing I'm worried about is weight. How much do they weigh per rim? Since they're so cheap, they may be pretty heavy, and because the unsprung weight is even further (8.5" compared to my 7.5" 15" rims) from the center, this could slow acceleration considerably. Also, are they pretty durable?

Thanks a lot.
