I think it looks good. It's also different than all the CSL or BBS LM style wheels we usually see on those car.

I might also buy a set of used CCW Classic within the next month.

They look more business than all the one piece cast LM spoke'd wheels so many get for their Z4's. But I also prefer a mult-piece wheel for quality and strength and reasonable repair, not just looks.
You should PS them with blk. or grey centers with that blue body...might look sharp.

THIS!

I also think that grey centers would look better with interlagos blue but not a fan of black.

I bought 2 sets of CCW Classic, I need to refurbish them (paint the centers/faces, black hardware and polish the lips). Here are some pics to give an idea of what it look likes on the car (car will be lowered for summer and also more camber front and rear, car is in winter mode right now):

Very cool. Are you painting/powder coating the barrels black or going polished?

Track wheels will have black barrels and the street wheels will have polish barrels.


I can't tell the exact size right now because I might switch barrels, buy new lips and make reverse mount on every wheels. I'm not 100% sure they fit right now without rubbing on strut or fenders. I will test that on a lift with springs removed soon.

But to give an idea, the wheels with the teal centers don't fit on the car right now, wheels rub on the inside in the rear and against the strut in the front.

The teal wheels are supposed to be:

18''x9.5'' et22 (sandwich mount...)
18''x10.5'' et35 (front mount)

But I really doubt these are the real number... And the guy who did the silicone job before on those rims

The grey wheels are square 18''x9.5'' et32 (reverse mount), they seems to fit without any rubbing so far. But I want wider lips in the rear to run a staggered setup.

Here is what it gives with CCW Classic 18x9.5 ET32 1'' lips 18x10 ET26 1.5'' lips with Falken Azenis RT615K 255/40R18 275/35R18. It gives a meaty tire look! I still have some height adjustments to be made (in the first pictures, the front was lower by 1/2'' and I had to go raise because it rubbed too much into the fenders liners. In the last photos, there is a 6mm spacer in the back). I think I will lower the front by 1/4'' and remove the helper springs for more clearance between the tire and the strut ...
