Fuchs mag wheel weight vs BBS-RGR

Because BBS wheels are so light, I am currently considering purchase of BBS-RGR for my 3 series. However, when I started thinking of BBS for my '68 912, I realized the Fuchs mags are only 15 inches.

What is the weight of the 15 inch Fuchs? and for the tire size shown (see pics) is there a BBS-RGR for 15 inch, or would I need to upgrade everything (new tires & BBS) to 17 inch?

Fuchs weight

I'm not sure of the weights, you can probably do a search to find out. I am sure that 17 inch wheels on a 912 will be a challenging fit and look pretty odd.

thanks for the links, and suggestions on 17" not being the best look.
