Style 9 is the forged one. Style 8 are cast.

I saw this post last evening and I thought to reply the same. I would like to add that these style 8 wheels have a beautiful dish to them, somewhat concave, look larger than 16 due to the concavity, and set the e28 off beautifully. I do believe that with a 225/50 the rear fenders would benefit from a "roll" to avoid touching if lowered, full of people, etc. While it takes away the originality of the vehicle, it is a beautiful wheel and makes a style 5 owner do a double take and say "why doesn't my car look that cool". I definitely feel these are superior to E38 style 5s, my subjective opinion, however the E38 style 5 does on my e28 not require a fender roll
Could be due to the cheap uniroyal tiger paw 225/50's.

205/55/16 is the answer on 8s and 9s on an E28.

I stand corrected. I had style 9 at one time and for some reason thought these were also forged. I haven't weighed these but they feel pretty light.
