Arrow CCW C10s are IN and ON

Hey all. Been waiting many many years to buy these wheels and I finally have, for the E92 M3. There are very few wheels like these in the way that they are extremely strong, and very cheap (relatively).

Wheel specs:
CCW C10 in Competition Grey
18x9.5 F
18x10.5 R
Offsets forthcoming - I just asked them to make them fit with no rubbing and the ability to upsize to 285 in front and 305/315 in rear...
Weight = 24.5 lbs for an 18x13 wheel, so should be in 21-22 lbs range.

Tires:
Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta
275/35/18 F
295/35/18 R

Rubbing? no

The only thing that irks me is that the tire is JUST A LITTLE shorter than the stock 18s so the wheel gap is slightly increased. I MAY lower it with Dinan springs, but let's just say I have spent enough for now with other mods and want to focus on track days.

Other than that...I am very happy!

Most people want more and more concave but I've been a fan of these wheels for a while. I think they look great with the flat face and sharp spokes. Cost?

Thanks man. Significantly less Yup these will be my street/track wheels...I can refinish them easily also as Competition Grey is a factory GM color so is widely available.

Thanks! Just rims = 775 each because of 75$ finish option. 700 if you get reg. shotpeened finish.

Remeber - my car is new (well...750 clicks) so the springs may have not settled fully yet.

And I will come to ICAR tmrw, just not track it because the tires are new...But gives me a chance to go and add up the KM!

They are the opposite of the boutique wheels with fancy web pages and dramatic photographs in that they are a no nonsense forged wheel designed for performance, low weight and track use at a great price. They have a very good reputation.

VEry nice and as someone else above posted they look a lot like the Fall Lines which I almost picked up from a fellow user but he sold them.

You need to come by my place so I can see if them in person and see if they clear the Brembos.

Anthony...they clear them with space to spare!! The barrel is flat and very very slightly recessed from the full 18inch diameter. So the 14.xx inch brakes (380mm) are child's play

And sure, I'll come over whenever. Or you can come to ICAR today as I will be going to check it out!

Damn. Well, we know what a set of C14's and a set of C10's look like on an E9x. I wonder what a nice big fat set of Classics would look like, maybe with a gunmetal center...they're cheaper and lighter too...
