The BimmerWorld View: We put this set together to run a super-wide rear wheel with a stock-ish front wheel. This is an exaggerated staggered set. Both front and rear wheels should fit with no rubbing or interference. With the S55's torque more grip is often wanted in the rear so you can easily run a 295 tire.
F: 18x9.5" ET22. Only slightly wider than stock but more aggressive offset. We don't expect any rubbing with this unless a super-wide tire is used.
R: 18x10.5" ET36. Easy fitment with no rubbing likely.
Extensive work was done to produce a stronger wheel that was the same or only slightly more weight than the next competitor. TA5R uses the latest industry technology known as flow-forging or flow-forming. The process is similar to casting but with a tighter grain structure that makes the wheel stronger, similar to a true forged wheel. 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 under 20lbs. The TA5R has been fatigue and impact tested and exceeds 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 all 355mm brakes (Brembo F40, Monobloc, ST40, ST60) plus StopTech ST60 380mm kit and stock F8X M3/M4 iron brakes (not CCB).
Thanks to its lightweight 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.

Priced as a set of 4 wheels.Fitment Note:
we do our best to display wheels that fit your BMW model, based on your model selection. Wheels may be listed that are considered aggressive fitments or tight clearances for a particular model. 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.
