This square set of BimmerWorld wheels for the E36, E46, E90, E92, F30, F32, Z3, and Z4 are a direct fit with no fitment hassle or interference issues. All four wheels are 18x9.0" ET42, which is the right size for 235, 245, or some 255 tires. These are only moderately larger than original E46, E9X, or F3X wheels with a generous size in the front to help reduce understeer. Sizes and offsets have been carefully chosen to give the best fitment within the stock bodywork - no rubbing on fender or suspension*. These are light weight and strong alloy wheels at a great price for the set!

TA5R uses the latest industry technology known as flow-forging or flow-forming. The process is similar to casting but with a stronger roll-forged barrel and a tighter grain structure that makes the wheel stronger. The superior process far surpasses older manufacturing that use a straight casting process. Our TA5R 18" wheels have a load rating of 720kg (1,587lbs), which is higher than other so-called track wheels. Flow-forming and precise machining also produce a lighter wheel - our 18" sizes come in at just over 19lbs. The TA5R has been fatigue and impact tested using SAE, JWL, and VIA standards.

The wide-V-spoke design stretches all the way to the outer lip, a key component to the TA5R's strength. They also allow tremendous caliper clearance behind the spokes. 18" sizes clear Brembo F40, StopTech ST40, and PFC 332mm, 355mm, and some 380mm 4-piston brake kits.

Thanks to its lightweight, reinforced barrel and robust face design, the TA5R stands up well against the rigors of endurance racing, as well as your average street potholes. The 18" TA5R features a load rating of 1,587lbs.

TA5R features:
  • Wide V-spoke design out to the outer lip - superior strength
  • Flow-formed, roll-forged barrel - high strength but low weight
  • Reinforced inner lip for added strength over curbs
  • Knurled bead seat reduces tire slippage
  • Huge spoke clearance for big brake kits
  • Closed-face hub maximizes strength in the hub
  • Accepts OE BMW center cap (TA5R cap included)
  • Accepts factory lug bolts, wheel locks, or stud conversions
  • 32mm lug hole accommodates 19mm sockets
  • Protective recessed valve stem pocket
  • Tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) compatible (not included)
Priced for a set of 4.

* Fitment Note: we do our best to display wheels that fit your BMW model, based on your model selection. Many variables must be considered for wheel fitment, especially when using larger wheels or different offsets. These variables include: suspension type and settings, ride height, tire size, bodywork changes, and alignment settings. In some cases, additional parts or modifications may be necessary for fitment that may not be listed in our catalog. Final wheel fitment and clearance is the responsibility of the customer, however, we welcome your questions on fitment, size, offset, or other wheel-related inquiries. Wheel returns are limited to quality issues only. These wheels are compatible with 10mm spacers, however, 12mm is a better choice due to known design limitations of 10mm spacers.

Need help deciding on a size or offset for your BMW? No problem! Give us a call at 877.639.9648 or email us at [email protected] for assistance. We're your BMW wheel experts and are happy to help.
