Rays Strahlen: Where To Buy?

Anyone know of a vendor that stocks these? Or one that can order them?

I was hoping to find them in stock so I don't have to wait 3 months.

Directly from Japan is probably an option to avoid the wait.

I'm interested in these since they have the same specs as OEM 19s (even center bore 72.6 and stock emblems):
F 19X8.5J ET29
R 19X9.5J ET23
Or more aggressive:
F 19X9.5J ET23
R 19X10.5J ET23

Does anyone have the weight of these?

Those look sweet. Go aggressive if you're getting them.

It is TE37 Strahlen, very new wheel from Rays.

F 19X9.5J ET23
R 19X10.5J ET23
is the only right spec for M3.

No body has it in USA yet since it is very new.
You will have to wait about 3 months to get those.

Yes we can get you the wheels.

Any idea of price for these vs. the G2's?

As GTM mentioned these are brand new wheels for 2009 and nobody in the US has them yet. the only way to get them is to pre-order them.

We can definitely help anyone with pre-orders if interested.

Volk is coming out with some NICE variations on the TE37.

Please do some research before posting crap.
RAYS Strahlen TE. There is absolutely nothing 37 and nothing VOLK about them, the 37 is for the VOLK TE37. And what's up with the BS about those specs? You could even do the research on this forum...

And to answer my previous question: F8.5J weigh 10.0Kg = 22lbs and R9.5J weigh 10.7Kg = 23.6lbs

Oh, and thanks for your input!

I thought the OEM offset for 19" wheels on the E92 was ET28?

The safe offset is the same specs as stock.
Most people usually want a more aggressive fitment than the OEM spec wheel when people are spending much money to upgrade.
This is why we recomended the tuner spec marked with an * on your posted sheet.

The US Official Rays/Volk Importer, lists this wheel as a TE 37 model in our price lists and release information.

We do PLENTY of wheel fitments of both concervative and aggresive fitments. We currently have many customers here that we have supplied with both options.

why so hostle? lol. take it easy.

Maybe that's how they do it in Romania???
It was definitely a bit hostile for no good reason.

Buddy, first of all you're backtracking on the specs you quoted. You said "the only spec for the M3" and second of all I can't stand when shops or vendors know less than the customers. I keep my respect for you guys in all other matters.

Maybe it came across as hostile, and I apologize. The information you posted was misleading AFTER and not before the correct had been posted. That's all. Just be content I'm not posting links to where people can procure them directly from Japan.

BUMP for someone ordering these and posting some installed photos later.

Very clean M3 and perfect wheels to match. You can't go wrong with a set of forged volks. Hope you can handle the wait! I had to wait about three months when I got the GTM's for my previous car and it was worth it.

I ordered my Volks through Vividracing and Dan was very helpful. He was able to get me those wheels even before they were sold in the US. Give them a call, it never hurts to shop around.

currently, the Strahlen TE can only be special ordered and yes the lead time is about 10~12 weeks for US customers.

I think that the lines on these are so much smoother and cleaner and rides with a little more class than its racier little brother (if I can even call TE37, that!).
