The BimmerWorld View: we're extremely proud to release these fully featured flow-form wheels for street and race and everything in between. Stronger than what's currently on the market but at fighting weight to compete with the best out there. And with generous caliper clearance that doesn't need spacers. This is a soft launch with select sizes and colors available to ship right away!
The TA8S follows our forged TA16 and flow-formed TA5R wheels and adds timeless styling that looks amazing on almost any BMW model. The design will be instantly familiar to any BMW enthusiast but we added some unique touches to make it our own design - like spokes that reach all the way to the rim, extra machining on the outside of the Y-spoke, and a slight concave profile. Of course it's instantly familiar because it looks so good on so many cars!
The TA8S has all of the features necessary to be one of the best flow-formed wheels on the market. Period.

Our approach with the TA8S was to add back mass and durability where it would be beneficial, specifically in the barrel. The added strength is key to durability for potholes but also for the harsh race kerbing that will chew up featherweight wheels. The TA8S uses the latest flow-form manufacturing process to produce a light weight, strong, BMW track wheel with plentiful caliper clearance for street, track, autocross, and racing use.
Extensive work was done to produce a high-strength wheel that is the same or only slightly more weight than other track wheels. TA8S 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 designs that use a straight casting process. Our TA8S 17" wheels have a load rating of 750kg (1,650lbs), which is higher than just about every other flow form wheel. Flow-forming and precise machining also allow tight control over weight. Even with a high load rating our 17x9 wheel comes in at just over 18lbs. The TA8S has passed SAE, JWL, and VIA testing standards.
Spoke profile and shape were studied to give as much clearance as possible for big brake kits. The curved Y-spoke design stretches all the way to the outer lip, a key component to the TA8S' strength. They also allow generous caliper clearance behind the spokes. 17" sizes clear Brembo F40, StopTech ST40, and PFC 332mm and 355mm 4-piston brake kits.

General Fitment Note: we do our best to display wheels that fit your BMW model, based on your model selection. Wheels with aggressive fitments or tight clearances may also be listed. 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.
