Well, 16x7 and 16x8 were on 3.3 930s I thought, but the backspacing may be different?

Whoops, don't know where I got the Magnesium impression from- maybe just reading discussion of the originals. Aluminum is good as well- more ductile and less susceptable to porosity means it is easier to manufacture and has better fracture toughness = bend not break due to impact.

I think the design is still more structurally efficient due to having the material concentrated more in the center rather than the Fuchs inverted design with the "windmill" design.
