The BimmerWorld View: 18x10 is the go-to size for square track wheels on E46 M3, E9X M3, and F8X M3/M4*. The 10.0" fits these cars with minimal clearance issues* and the width is perfect for a wide range of optimal tire sizes. 18x10 was also chosen as the factory race wheel for the E9X M3 GT4 and M235iR.
BMW Fitments:1 Series
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. Does the world really need another "Style 163" wheel? No but we wanted to offer the best one on the market!
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.
Way more than simply a "replica", the TA8S has all of the features necessary to be one of the best flow-formed wheels on the market. Period.

General Fitment Note: these are sold as a race-fitment only and rubbing with bodywork or on suspension may occur depending on tire choice and suspension settings. We cannot verify fitment with every combination of wheel-tire-suspension. Verification of wheel fitment is the responsibility of the customer. Please contact us directly if you have any questions or concerns. Returns are limited to quality issues only.
* Fitment for 2015+ F8X M3/M4: this set uses 18x10" ET25 wheels which is a great fit on the front of F8X but aggressive on the rear. The rear tire is more likely to contact the fender, even with additional camber, alignment, and ride height adjustments. Although this is a common size and offset in the industry we prefer the 18x10" ET33 with a spacer in the front. With the +33 offset we get a better fit in the rear and no issues in the front with the spacers. Please contact us directly if you have any questions or concerns.
