They look good! You have to put a BBK behind those now - stock will look silly!

You running the RA1's again this season?

Maybe if I painted the calipers white

Yes the RA1's or the Nitto 05's 275/35 square or 295/35 if I can find some 11's for the rear wheels at a price that I can afford.

What is the offset?
Looking for track set up too, but don't want to spend $3000 on Volks.

Just ordered AP Racing BBK, let you know how it works out. Going to Road Atlanta in March.

What are the offsets of the D-force?

Dam - now I might have to sell a set of my OEM 18's and pick a set of these up. They look like they will allow for better brake cooling and bigger barrel (even for the AP's) cant hurt. Hmmmmm

The ones on Bimmerworld show the wrong offset, but I know James Clay was running them on his E92 M3.

I think they would be a good alternative as well. I wasnt aware the offsets worked for our cars.

On their site the 18x9.5 has a offset of +35, which would require spacers, so not a good bet for me. But I thought they had a wheel that had the right offset.

Definitely worth looking into. If not I think these TRM's are the way to go. Good offset and size for the track! I think they would look good on the street too!

That should help a lot as my 18x9.5's almost touched the caliper and the wheel weights did till I fixed that!They are quite light and if I do at some point decide to go to a BBK at least I will not have to change the wheels.
