2 Bent rims, replace with OEM or M5 Reps?

So due to a series of circumstances, I've ended up with 4 brand new 17" tires and 4 rims, 2 of which are bent and slapping like crazy and one of which has a crack.

After market 17's are far and inbetween and OEM's are expensive and take hella long to deliver.

I've found a pair of new replacement OEM's for $500 shipped from a legit source but will take until March 2nd to get to me, or I found a set of M5 replica wheels for $655 shipped from **********s.

What one should I go for?

The reps don't look half bad and I'd get them faster but I fear that if one should get damaged it'd be hard to find a replacement. Plus they are a bit on the cheap side and **********s doesn't mention a manufacturer.

Here's the link to the reps:

Here's the link to the OEMs

Any tips would be appreciated.

I mean they are def 655 for a reason, b/c they are a cheap wheel but if you take care of them and are cautious of what you drive over I am sure they will work just fine. It would be better than driving around on what you're on now.

Did you see these? I'm not sure where you can get them though.
