Sounds like they will be a bit different.

That price for that size and weight is almost unbelievable.

WOW.

Pictures are not available quite yet but they are in production and, as of today, scheduled to arrive to us early May, 2008.

OK, the stock 135i wheels are 49mm offset in front, so the 45mm offset will be further out towards the fender about 1/4", and the stock rear offset is 52mm so they will also be further out towards the fender 1/4". Is this correct? Its been a while since I ordered wheels. So the 1/4" won't really be seen very much, correct? I HATE tires that go past the fenders or even flush is pushing it. 1-2mm in from the fender looks perfect IMO.

First Photo of the GTS-R

There has been a production change also. It seems that we originally asked the manufacturer for a red stripe behind the spokes but they could not accommodate. It seems that somewhere along in the process they were able to make this happen.
The grey and black wheels will have the red stripe behind the spokes. We are now planning to carry the wheel in Silver without the red stripe (same offsets, price, size, etc...) There is no ETA yet for the Silver part numbers.

Thanks for the photo Gill, though I for one am not much of a fan of the red stripe. Other than that the wheel looks great.

+1. I was kind of leaning towards picking these up in grey; however, with the stripe added, I may end up going with silver. Coming out of a Subaru, while I loved the car, I'm trying to get away from the "tuner" look...

Other than that, these wheels are sweet and am anxious to see them mounted on a one of our cars!

Gill, are the weights that you originally posted still accurate??

I'll definitely wait for silver with out the red stripe. the red strip totally ruined that wheel. super ricey, better get going with the silver ones I think you lost a lot of sales with that red stripe. I was about to cry until I got to the part about the silver ones without the red stripe. did I mention that red stripe sux :smile:


EDIT: I just noticed there up on the tire rack. If they didn't have that red stripe I'd order them now.

Wow!

Those would look AWESOME on my Jet Black 128 w/ Red Interior!
Can you PM me with an estimate for a black set of 18"s with tires?

Thanks

AAARGH. Have been tracking these wheels for weeks. Even spoke to Gil personally about them. But that red ricer stripe makes them impossible for me.

Anyone know of any other matte grey wheels out there (that would fit)?

Looks like the silver wheels should be available right around, or at, the same time the others are.

Good news.:thumbup:

Are people looking at keeping the stock 18x7.5 front wheel or going to 18x8.5 all around?
