Questions about style 356 wheels

I want to get these wheels for my 2012 535i xdrive, and ran across this listing.
Are the wheels forged? According to the auction, they are, but according to posts here, they are not.

Since I have an awd vehicle, will 4 front wheels fit my car?

If so, I live in NYC, where potholes kill rims. If I were to get wider tires, 255/35/20, would that fit both fron at rear?

Yes, you can use 4 fronts.
AFAIK only the 19" 344M and 20" 345M from the M5 and M6 are forged OEM wheels from the F10/F12.

Thanks for the response guys.

Atomboy, I saw that listing but I want 4 fronts so that it won't affect my awd system.

I know recommended tire sizes are 245/35/20, but can I run 255/35/20? I don't know much about wheels but I don't want any rubbing or have to use spacers.
