BMW style 216

Hi, I'm in the US but think the UK probably owns the most style 216s. They can be had here new for a reasonable price but not many people seem to have them here.

I'm interested in them, they look great, but have a few questions from those of you that own them. Thank you for any info you can provide.

1. Can you tell me how much a 8.5 width or 8 width wheel weights? Did you weight the wheels yourself or know the weights by some other source?

2. If you own them, how have they held up? Has anyone bent them or cracked them?

3. How is the finish? Does the "BMW Motorsport" logo hold up or does it wear away?

4. Would you recommend them as a BMW original equipment wheel? Any reservations on them?

thank you.
