please enlighten: for 235s all around would the 8.5 be a better buy or the 7.5 would suffice?

What front spacer are you thinking, 7mm or 10mm?

Gill will there be the black or gunmetal without the ugly red stripe?
Its would be pretty easy to just not put it on


I'd pay extra

Is there a reason these wheels are no longer listed on tirerack?

^^^^^^^^^^^
Given the number of folks who would seem to want the matte grey wheels w/o the stripe, would anyone be interested in a group buy for the wheels without the stripe -- or is that even possible with tirerack/breyton? Gil?

My buddy with a 3series just contacted Breyton yesterday. You are correct the 18 inch GTS-R wheels will be targeted at the Mini and 1series. But it is very likely for bigger sizes and different offsets to come in the near future for other cars(especially the 3series).

gill, any chance you can fix the visualizer for these wheels on the 135i? also, for the widest tires without spacers then, is the only option the 7.5s with 225s all around?

Gill,
Do you know what if 19's will fit with Front 225-35-19
REAR 255-30-19 without any issues or should 1'ers stick with 18's for clearance issues

i don't want spacers so 255s won't work (apparently even 235s won't with this wheel) and i do want to encourage slight oversteer.

good luck with any traction down low going with a 235 wide rear with a 300hp car . I think "slight" oversteer might be a bit optimistic considering you are increasing front traction and decreasing rear traction from the factory setup

Whats the issues with wider tires up front? does it rub the suspension or fender liners?

edit: Nm, I see you have a 120i
