Sport wheels vs Alpina - Weight diff?

So whats the weight difference? Are the Alpina wheels lighter than the M-Parellel?

I think the Alpina soft lines are heavier as they are much larger then MPars. If you have the choice between the two I would pick the soft lines any day there pure sex!

Both are nice, if you ask me. I think the weight thing could be a bit deceiving, though. They might be close to the same...
