Do you want to see a new badass wheel for the 1er?

My 1-series track crew -- if you haven't seen me around here, or followed along on my build thread then feel free to do so. Otherwise, summary is: I mostly care about track performance / road racing.

With the 1er being a small market, we haven't had the most options for specific wheel fitments, especially super light, strong, forged, and good looking. I'm curious how many of you feel this and would be interested in seeing a new option.

I've been talking to Titan7, who have recently launched their line of forged, lightweight, track-spec wheels for specific platforms that we often see on track: M3, S2K, Evo, FRS/BRZ, etc... I hit them up to gauge interest in building some for us. If there's interest, meaning 5 or more people, we could probably do a small batch.

Details: FORGED and strong AF
>18lbs a piece
Massive clearance for even the biggest brake kits
Price would be between $1780-$1840 for the set.

There are a lot of conservative fitments and trends on this platform, but I prefer to run more on the aggressive side, with wide wheels and tires for maximum grip. I also run plenty of camber and a track alignment. I don't think this setup will be for everyone, but that's why I'm posting it in the track section.

You could either run a square setup with the front fitment, or staggered.

Front: 18x9 +40 (I can confirm this fits with a 255/35/18 Nexen Sur4G, -3* camber, KW coilovers with 7" spring) You can easily run this out back as well for a square setup.)

Rear: 18x9.5 +5x (I know APEX does +58, but that looks pretty conservative and I've heard some inboard clearance issues arise with wide tires and lots of camber. I'd like to test fit these out back to see where we should go. Guessing somewhere around +50-55)

For me, the goal is to run this setup with 265 front, 275 rear. More conservatively, you could run 255 front, 265 rear.

What wheel design would you prefer and how many of you would be willing to go for this? Genuinely care about this platform and am hoping to help create some new life for it. Wheels are just phase one of my plans.







For reference, here is my car running 18x9 +42 squared. 3mm spacer up front is just for piece of mind, but they actually clear without. Front offset is now effective +39. Tires are 255/35/18 Nexen Sur4G, which run super wider and are closer to most 265s.

Good start - maybe adding some pics of 1ers with close or similar spec offsets? I chose 3 piece wheels so are not in the market but it is something that is lacking for us.

May want to consider what's possible with the kerscher/n5tuner 15mm wide front fenders.

265/275 front and 285 rear would be pretty nice. Can already fit 285 out back with select apex wheels.

Those fenders are mostly useless. The issue with the stock body e82 is the bumper attachment point. Fenders are metal and can be pulled if needed.
I fit a wide 255 up front without much issue and zero fender modification. I'll be running a 265 soon and imagine with some heat, I'll be able to pull the bumper tabs and bumper out a bit, along with a light fender roll / pull.

The fenders are designed to be extremely rigid along the bumper tab. I have tried to pull it myself and what you will find is that the only way it gives way is if the fender tears much higher along the headlight. You may want to experiment with cutting the inside of the lip so that the edge may bend, I ended up grinding down the inside of the very front of the bumper tab and calling it a day. According to shocknawe a lot of 1ers already have this tear from just rubbing

Cool idea and thread. My Volk LE's were part of a custom E46 order around 15 years ago.

Hopefully anyone reading this understands that you are talking about running track level camber while running these tire/wheel setups. I can see someone that doesn't understand wheels reading this and installing a fr 18x9 et39 with a 255 tire on their stock suspension, and then when it hits their fender they think buying a spacer will help..lol.

dunno why the poll never showed up for me before, but we definitely need a 9.5 width wheel for the rear. I'd love to do the R10. Gunmetal.

Sweet - the response has been good enough to get these going I think. More soon!

Wish there was a 10" option for these cars. By my math, 18x10 +48ish will fit out back with a 265/275 with a good fender roll.

What would the point of that be when a 265/275 is perfect on a 9.5"?

10" rear would be interesting for 9/10 stagger, but I think this will be perfect as a 9.5" square setup on a M front converted 135 considering Titan7 already makes the necessary front wheels for that.

More is more. The car is easier to drive with what I like to call "performance-stretch" wheel and tire fitments. Less sidewall deflection and better tire wear.

I think he's avoiding the answer, he didn't reply in his build thread either.

Hi Guys,

Sorry for the delay.
I do want to assist in getting these out to E82 owners, but I asked for people to PM me their emails so I can put you in touch with the company directly, and only got 2 responses. Everyone who voted yes to wanting this, and is ready to commit to buying, needs to send me their email address.
