How much do the CH weigh compared to the stock e90/92 M3 wheels?

Hi Ben, while you are here, could you please suggest some lightweight 18" for track usage?? I used to run the SSR 18x8.5 all around with tirerack's spacer on my old E46 M3. now, I'm starting to do some research for track wheels on the E92.....

For immediate availability, the SSR Type C (new version of Comp.) is good. They are all one width, no stagger possible for the E92 with that wheel. They used to have a wider rear, but no longer.

The TR Motorsport is the same weight, and can get wider rears (rears will be a little heavier. 18.5lb for 8.5" 19lb for 9", 20lb for 10". The MT-1 needs a spacer (included) for use on the E92.

SSR Type F will have 18x8.5 and 10". Weight not known yet, but should be light. Not available yet, but should be coming soon.

Hope that helps. I'm out for the weekend, but back on Tuesday.

What about the BBS CH 19x8 and 19x10 for the M3? Do they require spacers? How is the offset vs factory in 19" What about 20"

Regarding rear 19x10...

You really need to either re-read the whole thread or actually read the whole thread before posting.

Why would you want to use a smaller width wheel in the front (19x8) considering the oem fronts are 19x8.5? Here are the oem specs:

19x8.5; +29mm & 19x9.5; +23mm

BBS CH specs:

19x8.5; +35mm (plus 10mm spacers) & 19x9.5; +40mm (plus 15-20mm spacers) or 19x10; +20mm

Not sure about 20's though.
