Best 18x10 wheel for AutoX?

What are your guys thoughts on this? I was looking for something to race on that won't break the bank if I mesh them up, easy to get, and fairly lightweight.

I know Apex makes a great wheel that fits these standards, but I was wondering about some other options too.

We offer both the ARC-8 and EC-7 wheels in 18x10" ET25 which are in E9x M3 fitment.

Here is the Satin Black ARC-8 in 18x10" ET25 squared in action at an Autocross on an e90 M3:

I'm going to pull the trigger on TE37SL 18x10.5 w/ 22 offset on this coming Monday.....They weigh in at 18.5lbs per wheel and I'm going for 3 sets so I'll have some tire choices to make next

You are planning to run 18x10.5" square? Or did you mean 18x9.5"

Do you have the suspension modifications to make that fit up front? The Maxxis/APEX M3 runs 10.5 square but with a lot of negative camber, rolled front fenders and a spacer. It was also difficult getting the spring perch above the tire.

Yup, this spring I'm getting setup by TC Kline with his DA and I'm sure a lot of negative camber etc. STU allows a 285 max so that's why and I've got a set of the new Dunlop II coming for them. I've had a number of venders step up and help out: TC Kline, GTB performance, Rays, Rock's Trailer Sales, and Tire Rack. It should be a lot of fun this spring!
