How about These for a Track/Street set up?

hi...

We have been searching high and low for a nice 18" track/street set up that is very affordable and reasonably light.

Wanted your input on what you thought of the Work Emotion CR-Kai as an option. I don't know the weights yet, but I will have all that information soon.

In the mean time, let me know what you think of the design.

Possible specs:
18 - 9.5 +20 all around.

if it is for the track - its more important to know the weight than what it looks like - IMO.

these are cast wheels if I remember correctly, so weight might not be as ideal as some track junkies would like

the CR-kai as far as I know have not been put on an M3.
the weights I have been informed is 23lbs for tthe 18 - 9.5 +20.

If the 18 - 9.5 +20 all around is not what you are looking for. there is also the optionof going with the 18 - 8.5 +20 front.

Also, we don't have experience with these and the M3 BBK's but we know that they fit most interms of the spoke clearance. I will send some Brembo diagrams to find out if they will clear with the barrels.

so.... are people interested in getting these? If we can get minimum 5 ~ 8 sets, we can customize the bolt pattern for M3 at no extra cost and may be try a new color~~
