BMW rim / wheel weights?

Any info on the BMW standard and M wheel / rim weights? Are they heavy as hell? E90 M-sport pack wheels are one option for me, but I cant find info about how much they weight...

I would like to find light 18" wheels that look nice and are not very expensive., but still made with good quality. Any suggestions or e-shops where to shop?

M6 18" replica wheels. I got them 19" staggered but AFAIK they are available in 18" as well. The wheels are relatively light. Very good value for the price .

Yeah the AFAIK look pretty good. But I still believe that the CSL wheels are so much more good looking though. Here take a look:

I love the look - but they weight about 24 lbs. Anything at same price range under 20lbs? Also the et:s are different than standard wheels - is this goingto compromise the ride quality?

I don't think you're going to find anything in that price range under 20lbs. Advan RS are about 20lbs. Volk and well under at 17lbs for 18". Both of them are going to be 2x - 3x the price of the CSL reps.

Yes so it seems to be... Only light OZ wheels seem to be on the same price range. But they look like shit and the et's are not close to standard... It is still minus degrees here in finland so I have some time to find new summer wheels =)
