Anyone bought replica 4.6is wheels, yet?

Anyone bought replica 20" 4.6is wheels, yet?
They are every where now days for only $900 per set. Just wondering if they are worth it.

As replicas, they are going to be heavy.

In addition, the tires will cost you (at least) another $600... so the cost of entry is really $1500.

I heard the weight is about the same. I'm more worried about the strength and alignment. You know OEM 20s are also heavy as hell...
Just found out tires for these rims gonna be around $1200 in Michelin..
But, $2100 sounds alot better then $3700. Unless someone here wants to sell me a used set.
