Arrow Building A Set of CCW C14... Help Needed on Sizing

I am thinking about the following:

18x9.5 ET25 + 265/35/18 Nitto NT05
18x10.5 ET28 + 295/35/18 Nitto NT05


Also, I have Moton coil overs w/ 2.5" springs in the front. Lowered 0.5" all around.

Is this a good set up? Will there be any rubbing/clearance issues?

Finally, is there any point to run 18x10 in the front? (CCW is recommending it) But I've heard clearance issues from those who ran 10 up front.

TIA!

That looks like a pretty nice setup. If you are going to run the 265 in the front the 9.5" is fine - no need to go to a 10" width. I have seen a lot of people run a 275/30/18 on the front on 9.5" wheels without any issues. Not sure if your suspension drop will create any issues though.
Also on the rear your tire will be too tall - you should consider 295/30/18 instead to keep your rolling diameter in a better range.

Nice wheels!

295/35/18 should be a good fit. It is less than a percent smaller in diameter vs. OE.

295/30/18 is too small IMO.

No your right - just realized and was going to edit my post but you beat me too it. Had 19" wheels on the brain.

I would shoot for 18x10 25 all around..with a 285/30/18 all around. Should fit with no problems.

I prefer a staggered set up to provide more rear grip -- from personal experience and feedback from some friends on this forum. Don't care for tire rotation... this is an expensive hobby and a few more tires won't bankrupt me

I'd be interested in such a set-up too. Think they'd give a discout for a second set? Provided it's less than the VOLK G2's in the same size.

Sounds like your already pretty much decided on this setup. Might as well pull the trigger as I think its a great setup.

I would run a 275/295 combo if you are running those wheel sizes.

Can't go wrong with CCW, I recall John saying they guarantee fitment. What finish you getting, the shot peened clear ano above or is that brushed?

i think 10" in the front will rub on full lock when you have the steering wheel turned all the way for parking or going around tight corners in the city but it still depends on what tires you have on there of course. so there's a chance it'll be fine but i wont risk it.....

The black anodized C-series CCWs I've seen had some fading over time, looked purple in sunlight, just fyi. Perhaps they've improved the finish.

Just seached Rennlist and didn't see much. They're great wheels for the price, I had two sets. Since they're track wheels if you keep them out of UV light they should stay black much longer. Ano'd is lighter than powder.

Just placed an order...

18x9.5 ET23
18x10.5 ET28
Black brushed anodized finish

For those who are interested, make sure you speak to John the owner rather than others.

Stay posted for pictures.

Man I can't wait to see a set of CCWs on an M3. I have pretty much decided I am going with them for wheels for my Z06. Gotta support a GOOD wheel company in Florida.
