awesome wheels! They may look a little small bc they aren't black though (although this color looks 1000 times better than black). I'd really like to see them on a car.

That's a really nice track wheel I can't wait to see them. What are you wrapping them with Pilot Cups?...................Phil

Yeah they are wrapped in 265/35 | 295/30 Cups

Even cold (not at track temps) they stick very well!

Excellent choice of wheel design, wheel finish and tires - can't wait to see pictures of them mounted on your car

Nice looking wheels. I'd really keep an eye on your front strut to tire clearance. I have KW Clubsports, too and I have about 4-5mm (maybe even less) with my 18x9.5 +22mm and Michelin PSS 265/35/18 up front. This also all depends on your ride heights as well, though. Your wheels sit closer to the strut side with the higher offset so just giving you a heads up.

I also have 19x10 +25mm that I run up front and the paint on the springs in one part is gone from the tire rubbing on it. I had to run a 5mm spacers to alleviate the issue.

And don't mind the sig or handle...I do own a e90 m3.

Thanks for the heads up - I'll take a look at that tonight and see how close it is. I could run a 5mm spacer or possibly have a 2 or 3mm spacer machined but I'm hopeful that it will clear without one.

This is an ideal setup right here.

Also, I've actually got a lot of life out of my cups.
