I'm a busy guy so I don't have time for bs!
Further to what I said earlier, between the two, I would personally pick the CVTs because of the look, not specifically because of the warranty. That's because Vossen's cast line is of the same quality as the LC818s, as CalitriSC mentioned. Take the price difference between the two, and judge for yourself whether that extra money is worth the look and the extra warranty.
I have also seen plenty of pictures of cracked and damaged Vossens due to manufacturer defects. Even if they do offer the better warranty, keep in mind that if they do crack, you have to deal with the hassle of getting the wheel repaired/replaced, and the inconvenience of the spare tire.
Realistically, any wheel can crack, but there are other wheels out there with much better build quality and structural integrity. I know I will come to regret selling off my SSR Werfen GT03s for a set of Varrstoens someday. If you really want more peace of mind, get a quality wheel that is built to take the abuse you're expecting. For example, most SSR wheels have HTM barrels which give them more strength to resist bends/cracks.
