Quite a while. Normally it should be around 3 weeks, but it was longer for me because of going back and forth, etc...but wtv, they're here now. Rzldhao got 'em in 3 weeks.

I believe there are some on the 3er forums...

your running some huge sizes!

congrats the wheels look nice
I'm stock 100% for now. I have not passed break-in so I cannot comment on the speed difference. I do not believe they should slow me down as the weight is comparable if not lighter than stock 18s but just a bit more rubber on the road. From the minimal acceleration that I do until 5500 RPM I have noticed no difference, but then again I am still getting used to the car!

*UPDATE*

I called and found out the offsets as the wheels were really tucked in and I was seriously worried that I would not be able to lower the car with coils.

They are 35F and 38R. I checked clearance issues and as it stands there are none, but this would not work in the future without at least 10mm spacers. I called them and told them about this and John is the coolest dude ever . We had a long chat about my best options, and even going to a 10'' and 11'' setup and how this would affect tire stretching as well as clearance in the front. We decided that it would be best to use that setup, but they are waiting on their 11'' forgings, which should be there in a few weeks. I can ride on these for now and they will be shipping out the new ones and I will send them back the ones I have on now. No arguments, nothing. A fresh set of wheels built from the ground up with no downtime on my end.

Specs are the following:
- 18x10 ET 25 which I know for a fact does NOT rub. A member here has a 19x10 ET25 with an upsized 265/35/19 tire and was not rubbing, so I should be fine. This will push the wheel out 0.6'' and remove 0.2'' of backspace.
- 18x11 ET 32 with a 1 inch lip in the rear. This would push the wheel out 0.5'' and retain the same backspace. Given the forging, it MAY end up being even lighter than the 10.5'' that I have now.

I will run the same 275/295 setup.

Hats off to CCW and THIS here is the reason why everyone should but CCWs.

The rear ET32 seems a bit high no?
I would think they would use ET26 to ET28 for a 11" rim.

If we go with a popular 18x10.5 ET25, the 18x11 ET32 is 1mm tucked in on the front face. So it's perfect.

It's basically the same as a 18x10.5 ET26

I may or may not need to roll the fenders with that setup, but definitely not on stock suspension, or with the skinnier Vreds. When I lower it, then I'll worry about it!

Good luck.
Great that they are taking care of you.
