Wheels on the ALMS race car

Ok, who makes those wheels, they are sweet. Is there any version that we can get that may look similar?

BBS makes them and these are the closest things to it.

BBS 18" Racing Wheels - Aluminum

Lightweight 18" wheels.
The center is aluminum while the outer rim is enforced aluminum.
Available in most sizes and offsets.
The wheels with alu centers from the latest evolution -shown below- are more suitable for street use .
The wheel centers are also available in silver, black or gold.

I don't think those are it. Aren't the ALMS M3 magnesium wheels? Also, they don't have a lip, IIR.

To answer the OPs question, the ALMS M3 wheels you are asking about are BBS RE wheels. The ones you are looking at are the forged magnesium centerlock version.

They make a five bolt magnesium fitment for the M3, but are virtually impossible to acquire. If you want a set, they can be ordered through TCKline Racing. They are about $6000 per set of 4. I've only seen a silver finish on them, however. I believe five sets have to be pre-ordered before BBS will sell to anyone.

They are NOT street wheels. They are very fragile and will crack if subjected to impacts typically seen on the street.

BBS make an aluminum RE as well, but I'm not sure it can be had in an M3 fitment.
