I disagree. 18" TE37 spokes are more concave, but 19" has the wider lip. I might just pull the trigger and mount them now that I think more about it.

My understanding is there are two versions of TE37SL's that are 9.5" wide. The original version had offset of +22. Rays released an updated version with offset of +21 because they made the lip wider.

When I called my vendor and he said the one I was ordering was +21, It sounded weird. I didn't know why there was a +1mm difference in offset. Searched this forum and found the answer.

Sticker option

Great thread; new question: I am the proud owner of a new set of 18" TE37SL Black Edition wheels for my E92. As many know, it comes with a stock sticker, but not going that route for a variety of reasons. Car is Melbourne Red and the choice is either a stealth like black-on-black (shown below) or more going with red and therefore more "pop." I've seen red stickers on black wheels and a variety of car colors, but not the black-on-black and must admit I like the idea of something not done before.
What say you thread followers??

Red stickers for the contrast.

What colour do you guys think will work best for a interlagos blue E92?

I've currently got pressed graphite SL's 18" and was recently thinking about respraying them either red or white. They will only ever be used on the track. I run 220's for daily drive.

Oh yeah, my brembos are orange. Kinda leaning towards white

[quote=slicer;14106007]I had these for approximately two weeks.... I couldn't grow to like the Bronze and SSII color combo.

Wheel Specs

Front - 18 x 9.5 et22 with 5mm spacer (effective et17) & 275/35/18 Hankook RS3's
(Slight rub at full lock)

Rear - 18 x 10.5 et22 & 285/35/18 Hankook RS3's
(No rubbing)




Love the offset on the fronts, Do you think a 295/35/18 R888 would rub in the rear with the TE's 10.5 + 22?

Yes it absolutely would rub. Et22 is too aggressive for 295/35/18's unless they are tire that runs narrow and round. The tire will hit the metal fender and remove the paint. I am running 295/35/18 G-Force Rivals on 10.5 et25 rear wheels and they have literally 1mm of clearance. In fact I'm not positive that I won't have problems with them on the track.... I will find out tomorrow. Edit - 295/35/18's have been track tested on 10.5" et25 wheels. They did not rub on the track, but I'm convinced that they would rub with a wheel that had any lower offset than et25.

Thanks for quick reply, so I guess 285 would be the better bet.
