Those Technomags weigh next to nothing, the steels will be a fair amount heavier, my 6" wide steels weigh about 1.5 times what my 7.5" alloys did, of the same diameter, 9" wide would weigh about twice as much, and my Ronals weighed more then Technomags

Some Corsa C's had 15" steels too.

G60 steels are 160 new, and you'd need spigot rings as the centre bore is bigger.

I reckon the Corsa C steels would be less money to start with.

True. I suppose with that sort of power the extra weight wouldn't matter too much anyway.

Good luck finding 15" 4 stud steelies! Took me a couple of months to find a decent set. Mine are with wide-wheels now
