Default Would you put premium forged wheels on a daily driver?

So I am using the stock wheels on my S6 with winter tires. For summer, I am looking at the VMR 708, which is essentially an RS4 wheel replica. They look decent and for $300 each are a tremendous value. On the other hand, being the enthusiast that I am, I am also considering the HRE P43SC. This is an absolutely gorgeous wheel but the cost would be $1800 each. My S6 is a daily driver and although I am always careful, there is certainly a higher risk of wheel damage. Cost is not an issue, but value is. So that leaves me with two questions:

1. Is the HRE worth 6 times the cost of the VMR?

2. Would you put HRE wheels on your daily driver?

Opinions wanted. Thanks.

Not on a daily driver for me. But I have so many vices I have to choose which ones I spend my money on
