These pre-order wheels will be arriving in early to mid June.

These wheels are Flow-Formed (roll-forged barrel) and available in 4 popular finishes.
The low offset wheels have a deep concave face. Strength is a priority so the load rating has been set to 703KGS.Weights ranges from 18.2lbs to 19.95lbs depending on size.
All the 18" wheel barrels were modifed in order to clear a stoptech 380mm BBK.

18x8.5" and 18x9.5" fitment is recommended but two highly modified cars are running the 9" front wheel
Recommended tire sizes for the front on the 8.5" rim is a 245/35/18. 255/35/18's can be used but a front fender roll may be required depending on tire model/brand
The rear can easily accomidate 275/35/18 tires
Note that wide rear tires will contact the inner subframe while car is jacked up off the ground.
This is not an issue at all and there is plenty of clearance once the suspension settles.

This is the groupbuy everybody's been asking for. No limit on minimum members. Just a cut off date of May 14th.

Sign up and save. This averages out to $276 per wheel with free shipping.

There is no other wheel on the market that can compare to the ARC-8 wheel for the amount of rear tire fitment it provides. Some wheel manufactures are starting to replicate our fitment, but be weary of company's that claim to be JWL and VIA when they are in fact NOT. Don't fall for false advertising that can put you at serious risk.

Our wheels exceed the JWL standard and they are truly VIA certified and tested in Japan. We have the certificate numbers to back these statements up, and can we can be found on VIA's online registry database.

Hey Eddy, we spoke a few weeks back, was never able to catch up but do you have an option for ARC-8's for 128i's in 17 inch fitment? The offsets look like they will clear without camber plates? Looking for a stock wheel that I can autocross with.

We have a 17" wheel that is 17x8.5" et40 arriving in about 3 weeks. I know others have run a similar setup for autocross use, but with 245's all around it would still need camber plates to clear the front fenders. a 235/40/17 all around would work, but it would still benefit from the extra mods.

Do these wheels accept the factory TPMS?

Do you have a good source for new sensors?

Yes these accept factory TPMS sensors. I don't carry them but I believe the vendor E92 lighting carries them

another member who purchased tpms valve stems from their local dealer had an issue with the newest 2010 stems. be sure to purchase 2009 or older as there was a design change.

these are not ideal for a stock car. Camber plates are required to run anything more then a 225/40/18 up front, which is undersized on an 8.5" wheel. I recommend these wheels for people who are trying to fit more rubber up front then is possible with the stock or stock like wheels.

The 18x9" wheel cannot be run in the rear, it is too aggressive and will not fit properly.

The 9.5" wheel fits with great ease in the rear. No modifications are needed. A 265/35/18 street tire will fit with no problems.

So a 285/30/18 summer tire (like a Hanook v12) should fit on a totally stock suspension and unmodified fender with these wheels?

That would most likely have rubbing issues on the inside.

275/35 is the widest street tire we recommend. Wider sizes could need spacers and fender rolling. 265/35/18 street tires are the only thing we are confident will fit without issues from brand to brand.

There's no fitment we can outright guarantee will fit, although every 265/35/18 street tire should have no issues, and you can go off of the experiences of other members and what 275/35/18 street tires have worked for them.
