Square setup. Pretty conservative comparatively. Sportline CS16 CSL reps 18x8.5 with Michelin Pilot Super Sports 225/40/18 ET35 on Eibach Prokit. Needs rear spacers. Any suggestions with regards to manufacturers?

WOW! How in the world did you squeeze a 18 x 10 under the front of the car? Did you remove the wheel wells? Are you using spacers?

new-ish

Yes they are reps but the deal was too good to pass up. For Daily Driver wheels they look just fine and not cost almost $5k for the real thing.

Just Dreamin'

Man, I got an email flyer from PYSpeed the other day, and came across these wheels...http://www.pyspeed.com/ARKYM-BMW-F10-5-Series-s/972.htm I wish I was a baller... My buddy has a connection with a HRE dealer... said they'd be around $1800-$1900 per wheel!!! I just don't know how people spend that kind of money on rollers...especially with the pothole population ever growing!

I'd love to see a set of 19"s of these HRE 794RS wheels on my Sepang M coupe... might be a bit too much bronze, but I love the look of these wheels... kinda reminds me of a modern Halibrand "wineglass" wheel (minus the knock-offs!). Nothing wrong with paying homage to these Shelby cars!!!





Anybody good with photoshop?

Correct, current street & track are both my current setup. The pics of the Volks are just pre-Aero whereas the track pic was taken after I got the sides installed.

Don't mind me, I get confused easily. I understand.

Nothing like having lots of Mag Wheels in the house to change the style along the way.

I can't wait to post pictures of the EC-7's.

While I do love the BBS lace design, it just shows up on almost EVERY Z4 I see these days. Its almost the new STOCK look. Perhaps they should have come from BMW this way..

They are a engineering perfect design in my opinion and I LOVE your cars that run them.

So in an attempt to be different....I continued to look for a strong and light forged 3-piece wheel and bought these Japan made SSR GT-10's .Speed Star Racing. They were the worlds first manufacturer of multi-piece wheels.

-19x9 et43 -245
-19x10 et24 -275

I'll need to slightly roll the fender arch in the rears to avoid max compression rubbing. Fronts are fine. These are the same offsets as I ran with my previous 19" wheels with the rears being 9.5" wide.

They also need a full restoration due to salt air in Japan and curb rash.

I have ordered CF -(blk. & Slvr.) center caps like I used on the Axxia Penta's to match my hood,trunk and side roundels.

What do you folks think ? Certainly not the common Z4 look....or German for that matter....but my roots do stem from the JDM world after all.

I'm thick, er.. thick-skinned .....so comment away,lol.

Thanks. They are definitely the absolute widest I can run on my S.I. without flair's or coil-overs. I might be able to run 285's on the rear once the fenders are rolled...but not yet.

I'm running 255 on 9.5 et35 in the rear with 2 deg of camber. I find that to be pretty flush... 285 seems ridiculous haha
