They're replicas. If they're from the same manufacturer as the other replicas on eBay, at worst they'll be 10 lbs more for all 4. And I would venture a wager that they're 2 lbs more each than factory 18s. (Which really doesn't matter unless you're serious about auto-xing.)

I bought replica Mercedes wheels on ebay from OEwheels. I'm extremely happy with them and their customer service. I got all 4 for $329 plus $85 shipping. They look exactly like the expensive stock wheels from Mercedes. Not sure if they have Porsche wheels also though.

The factory Carrera 5-spokes weigh 22lbs in the rear... the italian made replicas weigh over 30 each in the rear. Really doesn't mattter? you will feel a notice in that much unsprung weight.
