Seems interesting. Very cool that it's all done in house, as most of these "new" wheel companies just come and go every few years by selling the same overseas made products under new names and fancy marketing photos.

What's the pricing like on a set of these?

Not much more than a set of FlowForm wheels these days. Benefits include a overall stronger wheel that can take the abuse at the track coupled with lighter wheel weight.

+1, would this clear Rotora Street Challenge 380mm/6-piston front + 355mm/4-piston rear? I'm on stock ZCP suspension and ZCP wheels.

I'm also curious - are these just rotary forged, or fully forged? I was under the impression that only Volk and BBS are doing true fully forged 10,000 ton processes.

Good question, Titan7 wheels are fully forged. I believe Rays is the only other manufacturer using a 10,000-Ton press at the moment. BBS still uses 5000-8000-Ton forgings.

The T-R10 & TS5 wheels will clear the 380mm Rotora/StopTech BBKs, no problem.

Long time no see! These will definitely be popular on the E46M3 side for the track also.

Thanks Tom. This is good info, I'm planning to pick up a set of 18s so the T-S5 are promising as long as they live up to the stated specs!

No chance of having these in stock between 5/11-5/14 right? I'll be driving down to LA for a quick trip during that time. I've been bugging Kevin about the diffuser length 80mm tips as well, but it looks like those won't be in stock by then.

Most wheels that are sold in the marketplace change through many hands. A set of Titan7 wheels retails for under $2K.

For example, you will have a factory ship to a broker > which is then shipped overseas to an importer > which is purchased by a distributor > then to a shop > then to the consumer. We are factory direct, and not in the business of overcharging customers.

We are offering a technically superior wheel to many of the Forged wheel companies in the USA and can price them for much less. In the end, it's a win-win situation for the consumer.

All sales questions are handed here, or by sending us a PM/email, while Q&A can remain in this section.

The wheels won't be released until early/mid June, but I would advise getting on the pre-order list in the meantime to secure a set.

What interests me is that the 10.5 is et25 vs. et27 for the Bimmerworld wheels. That means I can either get away with no spacer or just a 3mm spacer to fit the tires I want to run.

These look incredible. You mentioned they'd clear StopTech and Rotora BBK. How about Brembo 380mm front and rear?

I like the designs.

Are these wheels made in the states? If not, where are they made. Just curious what "100% in-house" refers to. Seems like a bit of marketing sensationalism if they're in fact made overseas.

"In-House" meaning that Titan7 wheels are all made in one facility. For example, some wheel companies will import forgings from an outsource and then machine their wheels in their facility. Titan7 makes their wheels from start to finish in the same facility which means total quality control, and presses wheels to 10,000 tons which nobody else does in the US.

This results in a more dense and strong wheel at a great value with limited structural lifetime warranty.

So when companies like Rays and BBS tout they are all in house - they are simply stating that they have complete quality control compared to most other wheel companies, which is a good thing.

A lot of wheel companies don't actually make their wheels - they are importers. Titan7 are fully vested partners with their factory in China, where they bring their wheel expertise in engineering, product planning, design and features while we utilize their hardware to distribute great wheels. We're being fully transparent, no nonsense/fancy marketing and trying to bring high value performance product back to the industry - while making an attempt to "up" the wheel game.

In the end, the consumer is rewarded with a great wheel that is street & track ready at an affordable price.

Hi Tom,

Amazing wheels, look great! Is the black M3 in those pictures lowered in anyway?

Thanks!
