Is there any possibility that you guys are going to produce a 18x10.5 or 18x11? I'd like to go slightly wider in the rear in the next few months.

I have the TRMotorsport track 18s and must say that the look of the ARC-8s have really grown on me after a friend mounted one on his e46 M3.

We're producing an 18x10.5" et27 wheel right now. It won't arrive till Oct/Nov though.

Wheels performed great, no rubbing on NT-01s 275/35/18s all around.

So a 5mm spacer should work nicely in back?
Damn, my 10" wheels are still in the box and here comes a 10.5.

Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."

There's no need for a spacer in back at et27. We're not going for a stretched rubber look, so to fit meaty r-compounds onto a 10.5" wheel the offset can't be in the low 20's.

With these realistically arriving around the end of Nov, I wouldn't be too worried about them just coming out. You could always sell of two wheels. There will be a groupbuy for those when they officially release so that would offset your loses from selling two wheels used.

Can one run the 10.5" on the front as well without rubbing?

Yes and No. It won't bolt up without a spacer as the inner lip will be too close to the strut tube, if not touching the strut. With a spacer and a wide tire the wheels will protrude from the fender. If you add camber plates to dial in a decent amount of negative camber, then you could fit them up front without fender issues, but the wide swing of that wheel will most likely have fender liner rubbing issues (rubbing the plastic behind and infront of the wheel).

We're working on a new design for early release next year, that should cover those needs.

There will be a groupbuy for them just prior to their initial limited release.

Race teams have been snatching up most of the 18x10's, but we still have good stock in the hyper silver and anthracite finish (other 2 colors won't last long at all).

Get these and our 18x9.5" wheels while they are good in stock!

Thanks for all the PM's and emails.

We're getting limited on 9.5's so now's the time to grab them. We'll have more in late November as well.

Thanks for the bump.

We should have our 18x10.5 prototype here in about 1-1.5 weeks. It's being prepped for paint right now.
