Maybe you can just spray a thin layer of rubber on the wheels and avoid flats altogether.

I believe option 1 is the best one for safe driving. Option 2 will require modifications.

On the topic of replicas... You might find yourself in some deep do-do if those rims crack; especially with xxx/30/21 on the rear. I would buy a set of 6, one for the F/R. Although you can only carry two in the car, that is if you have nothing else in your trunk.

Recommendation: Stay away from replicas if you can. The costs for damage will outweigh a genuine rim purchase. IMO and experience.
