GTS Wheels Available on GetBMWparts.com

Just a FYI. I got a PM from Evan at Tischer. They are listed on their website now.

Thanks

Nice. Looks like $2140 for the set. Are these actual GTS wheels or ZCP wheels Tischer is powdercoating themselves? Suspect the latter given the restrictions on GTS parts.

I would tend to doubt a dealership is going to the trouble of powdercoating wheels for resale. And to then only sell them for $90 more than the standard finish?

Arent these like 30 pounds? Why would this have been chosen for more than one performance model?

Jason and I spray paint them black before shipping out....















Yes, 100% genuine BMW matte black comp package style 359's.

Last check BMW only showed a few sets available in the US and 0 in Germany....so first come, first served.

Reason why is because they wanted to go wider, so they went with 19x9 / 19x10.

To keep cost somewhat low, they had to cheap out on the production manufacturing, hence the cast wheels. Don't ask me why, I'd much rather pay an extra couple grand on top to get them forged, because they sure are sexy wheels.

LOL, okay maybe not. Just thought they were going to restrict these (or at least the prices would be higher.) I'd jump on these if I didn't have a black car.

They are listed as matte in the ETK...however it appears the actual color is more of a satin black finish.

I emailed you guys yesterday about the finish and got a response back saying matte black. so which is it, matte or satin? is the finish like the pic above that someone posted? i'd hate to order these, get them, and not get the finish i was expecting.
