Replica wheels weight vs. OEM

Ok everyone has said that the replica wheels are nice and hard to seperate from the OEMs. How much more do the replica ones weigh vs. OEM. More specifically Wheel Dynamics Carrera lightweight and the Sport Techno ?

Wheel Dynamics Shipping Weights

I think they're very similar in weight. The boxes from FedEx in which my wheels arrived were 23 (front) & 26 (rear) pounds, according to their label. The wheels actually arrived in a box, in a box. So shave another pound per box/wheel... So I estimate 22 pounds and 25 pounds (f/r).

Since I have posted I have talked to Carlos at Wheel Dynamics about the wheel weights and a couple of other things. The Carrera lightweight style weight 1.5 pound more per wheel compared to the OEM. I wonder where they are made?
