The BimmerWorld View:
18x10 is the go-to size for square track wheels on F87 M2, E46 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. This set uses the ET33 offset, which is a better fit in our opinion, but requires spacers for most models. We would rather run spacers than having tires rub on bodywork.
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.

we do our best to display wheels that fit your BMW model, based on your model selection. This set has been specifically chosen for aggressive track/race use and some compromises should be expected to fit wide rubber on these cars. The ET33 offset means spacers are recommended or required, depending on the model (see below). 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.Recommended Spacer Sizes:
F87 M2: small spacer in the front, depending on suspension setup
E46 M3: no spacers required but 5-12mm is recommended for a flush look
F8X M3/M4: requires a 3-5mm spacer in the front
