CCW wheels are great. Wish I had deep enough pockets to get them as a spare set of track wheels incase my Volk set fails.

Yeah they're about the same price as Volks, just a bit less.....both they and Volks are such amazing value IMO.

Mine have just shipped out Wednesday!

I really like the Volk SLs, but the front offset is what concerns me. ET15 is really aggressive.

His point is they both cost about the same, but the VOLKS seem to weigh less and are VIA/JWL certified and come from one of the top wheel foundry's in the World. At least that's what I think his point was.

As for the offsets, we'll have to wait until someone installs a set. I would think it would be OK with some negative camber, which one would run at the track anyway??

I didn't know that. All the vendors have posted et15.
Thats great though, et22-25 is perfect for front wheels.

i dont think so ... but if it's true ... i'm in for some SL's (handled the 18x9.5 @ WSTO booth @ Bimmerfest) = VERY lightweight.

To be honest, the CCW C14 is a better 'looking' wheel + u can order in any finish & offset = congrats to anyone w these.
However, ima go on a serious diet (possibly gonna strip my M) .... so every pound counts & I will obviously be sacrificing looks & comfort to get this car as close to (if not better then) GT4 as possible.

No John called me told me there was a slight finishing issue so they are fixing that up and will ship it very soon. Still in no rush as the car is not even here yet

A fellow member asked me regarding the clearance around a 380mm BBK. Here is a picture.

WOW, you can get a whole finger between the wheel and caliper with the StopTech's!! That's huge. It should fit the Brembo's too then.

that is some amazing clearance. i am very surprised. most of the time when you fit a 380mm bbk in an 18" wheel, you barely have any clearance at all.

CCW's

I ran Classics and Corsairs on past Corvettes (track only).

John has always been good at knowing what specs will work best for any given car.

The StopTech's are suppose to be a smaller caliper than Brembo's, but with that much clearance, the Brembo's shoudl fit too.
