18 - 10.5 G2 on all 4 corners on an E92 M3

The volk VR G2 has been a greart success amongst the European car customers, especially with BMW customers.  I think that this is especially due to the ALMS GT2 M3 that rocks the RAYS G2 centerlock wheels.

The high strength to weight ratio and killer looks have turned many weekend racers as well as famed BMW tuners and race teams to put them on.

Here is a fine specimen by Turner Motorsport, rocking 18 - 10.5 all around with some 275/35-18 Continental Tires.



The 10.5 front's certainly don't look out of place.  With many track customer worried about not having enough grip in the front... you won't have to worry any more.

I can only imagine the amount of lateral G this thing is going to pull...

I assume these are all the same offset so you can rotate them?

I would think they would run the TE37-SL since it's suppose to be lighter.
That must be some fat track rubber too since they don't look stretched at all.

I have 2 sets of the 275/35 18 Continental's that are used in the race series and they are a much smaller tire than the same sizing in a Toyo or Nitto.Great looking setup for sure.

doesn't it put alot of stress on the power steering to run such width in the front? just quoting something i've read elsewhere on the forum.

If it's a 10" rim, then that explains how it looks like it fits the wheel well.

Those look like Continental Racing Slicks and they do look beefy!
