Arrow CCW 18" BBK-Friendly C14 Quick Take...

Facts
Manufacturing time: 2 weeks
Total lead time: 3 weeks
Price: mid-$2k

Sizes: 18x9.5 ET23 / 18x10.5 ET28 (CCW can build to any size/offset you spec)
Tires: 265/35/18 / 295/30/18 AD08
Finish: brushed black anodized
BBK friendly: yes (380mm)

Quick Take
Got these after some long deliberation... Forged, reasonable price, good feedback, pretty design, and BBK friendly. The finish is a machined anodized black which shows the machining traces. The anodized color is not as dark and pretty as painted HREs I had but these are meant for the track anyway. C14 does not accommodate center caps due to machined out center mass for weight savings.

Only complaint so far is one front tire was mounted in the reversed direction (CCW refunded me for the re-mount)

We'll see how these do in the long run... more pictures next week.

So these are about the price of the Advan RS but forged and you don't have to wait 2 months. Nice.

Oh well.

Not like you got some bad wheels. I know you searched around for a while.I am strongly considering the RS vs. V2's in 18" but this is definitely another strong candidate. I now they have a great rep, but I don't see any mention of any certification.

The CCW website says "starting at $2,800" so I'm surprised OP was able to get them around mid $2000... unless $2,800 is mid $2000?

Can't wait for pics.

I looked at CCW a while back and there were closer to Volk pricing. Which seems about right since both are forged wheels.

The CCWs have great BBK clearance.

I don't know if you knew about these before I told you about them, but I would think that I steered you a little in the right direction I hope you enjoy them. I ordered my C10s last week!

Normally I don't get excited about cosmetic additions but these really caught my eye!
I'm digging the anodized finish.

What do they weigh?

According to CCW, 18x13 = 25lbs, so mine are probably low 20lbs.

I will try to weigh them when I get a chance.
