2009 - A recap of wheel releases

2009 has been a time of economic downturn and struggle for many individuals and companies. The wheel market on the other hand has been pumping out many wheels. The freshly released wheels have all new designs as well as new manufacturing techniques resulting in stronger and lighter wheels! Wheelsto wanted to take the time towards the end of the season to recap some of the exciting wheel releases from various premium manufacturers.

BBS - The all and mighty, always popular
CH-R was released in 20" version with 19" confirmed for release by the end of the year



LM was released with 2 new finishes in the US, Diamond Black and Gold


LM-R was released in Diamond Black in the US


Rays - One of our favorites around the shop
Volk G2 - The second generation TE37 in 19" and 20" models both featuring a slightly differing design




Volk RE30 was released in a new finish, Black Machining, for BMW application


57 Motorsport G07WT was released for BMW fitment



Strahlen TE - new forged monoblock specifically made for BMW fitment



Yokohama
AVS F15 is a new forged offering from the guys at Yokohama



Advan RS-D is now available from Advan. A high quality, lightweight, cast wheel.



Advan RZ is also a high quality, lightweight, cast wheel that is similar to the RS. This is unfortunately, not available for BMW application...yet.


Alloy Technic - A new company that is offering VERY lightweight forged wheels for BMW applications
Mesh is my favorite wheel for the year. So lightweight and a great spin on the popular mesh design.
20x10.5



B9 is a fresh new wheel design



Modulare Wheels is another new company offering 3 piece forged wheels
M11


M12


M14


M3


M4


M6


Klassen released a fresh new forged monoblock series
CFV


CSV


Work Wheels - The Gnosis Line is a new line specifically designed with the Euro crowd in mind
GS1



GS2



GS3



GS4 was just recently released in Japan and we have heard they are on their way to the states at some point.


SSR released two wheels, one of which seems to replace the Type C
Werfen GT-03 is a revival of the classic GT-3



Type-F is currently only available for Japanese models, but hopefully we will see some euro fitment in the near future.


HRE - Teaming up Dymag HRE released two carbon fibre barreled wheels with forged aluminium centers
CF40


CF43


NKB is a new brand being brought to the US market offering both forged and high quality cast.
510M is a three piece cast mesh style wheel


086R is a one piece forged 10 spoke wheel


510R is a one piece forged mesh style wheel


036M is another three piece cast mesh style wheel


Elite 8 is a three piece cast wheel


Core has some very high quality interesting wheel releases
F1 Brava


F1 Mesh


This is not a complete list either. So many different wheels have been released from all types of companies from premium forged brands to budget brands. Wheels are continually evolving in both style and quality. I can't wait to see what is released for next year!

If you have any questions about the mentioned wheels feel free to contact us or post up and discuss right here!

In CH-R section, arent' those CH black edition in the E92 AW picture?
CH-R has skinnier spokes and silver Motorsport but the AW M3 picture has: fatter spokes (CH) and no silver motorsport (CH).

Can you confirm please?

Yes they are very nice, very clean, wheel design.

Here are the available sizes that fit the E90, E92, & E93 M3...

Strahlen TE forged wheel

Front wheel options:

19 x 8.5 +29 offset
19 x 9.5 +23 offset

Rear wheel option:

19 x 10.5 +23 offset


Available in only 1 standard finish (for the time being):

Gun Metal /w/ Polished outer lip



By the way...Strahlen is a German word that means "rays".

So the inside joke is...they named these "RAYS" TE wheels. (parent company of VOLK)

Everytime I see these pics of those wheels I wonder why Volk/Rays never make 10" rears

Great Post! +2

I'll be saving this page in my favourites and having a good think about which is an option for my AW e92 . Right now I'm loving the BBS's and Yokahama offerings.

I love these wheels for M!!!

Looks like Lemans took care of the details (Thanks Lemans!), but I would just like to add these retail for $4120 for the 19x9.5 and 19x10.5 set. Contact me for better pricing though

The problem is, you'll like one wheel for a few months, then another wheel starts to look good, and so on and so on. It's never ending.

Anyone know what the difference between the Strahlen and G2's? They look so similar I wonder why they made both wheels. It looks like the spokes are wider on the Strahlen (which I prefer).

And why the hell did VOLK make the G2 in 19" look different than in 20"??

The strahlen TE and G2 are quite different in terms of designs.

Strahlen TE: Black Alumite Limited
Name:  StrahlenTE_BlackAlumite_1.jpg
Views: 2439
Size:  67.4 KBName:  StrahlenTE_BlackAlumite_2.jpg
Views: 2464
Size:  63.2 KB

Volk G2


Also, the Strahlen TE is specific to BMW only. I believe they are also marketed separately in Japan through authorized Strahlen dealers only....
