ZCP wheels forged or not?

I've searched and the consensus is that they aren't. But the website still states they are forged and the 2011 print brochure says the same. If they are a bit wider than the original forged 19's, wouldn't it make sense that they weigh a little more? Any official word from BMW on this? Sorry if this has been beaten to death. I just find it a bit strange that BMW's marketing hasn't corrected the error yet for the 2011's. False advertising especially for customers who don't do any research. I've ordered zcp anyways, but it would be nice to know either way.

Doesn't matter forged or not, they're probably stronger than most of the wheels out there anyways, the only exception and I mean ONLY, would be Volks, Advans, BBS or RACs...and maybe the fall line motoring HRE's...but only those particular HREs..

Spun cast made by BBS. They are .5" wider at all 4 corners over the 220M 19" wheels. They are also slightly heavier than the forged 220M.

BMW still states that the E46 Competition wheels are forged, but they're not. Neither are the 359Ms.
