TE:AL (Technical Alloy) TA16 - 19" - Limited Sizes & AvailabilityThe BimmerWorld View
- Forged wheels are lighter and stiffer than their cast counterparts, which means your BMW will accelerate, brake, and turn better. (Yes, you can see it on the stopwatch!) But additionally, a forged wheel will last longer - often the duration of the car's service life. In our professional race team, we have a large collection of forged wheels that have been used for 6 or more years, while even the best cast only last a few weekends. Spend the money up front and enjoy the savings later.
|19" TA16 Forged Wheel Specs
The long awaited 19" version of the BimmerWorld TE:AL Forged Race Wheel utilizes the most advanced wheel design and manufacturing techniques available in the world. Like all of our TA16 wheels, the 19" model employs a traditional cross-spoke design with 16 attachment points and cutting edge features. Extensive FEA (finite element analysis) was completed which when combined with advanced manufacturing processes, makes the strongest, lightest wheel possible.Key Features
- Ridged cross-spoke design and internal outer-barrel strengthening rib for ultimate strength, rigidity/camber stiffness, and durability
- Massive Caliper Clearance - 19" versions fit up to 390mm brakes (Sorry, NOT for CCB Option!)
- Pocketed center pad to minimize weight without compromising strength
- Machined from T6061 aluminum forgings, produced with an industry-leading 10,000 ton press for optimized grain flow
- Knurled bead seat to minimize tire slippage with higher-powered cars and under heavy braking
- Standard BMW 72.56mm bore size (most BMWs except E39 5 series)
- Accepts BMW factory center cap, sold separately.
- Reverse mount
Each wheels is also shot peened and heat treated for exacting strength and increased durability. The construction of the rear rim portion emphasizes extreme strength and quality to be used with super low profile tires and the thrashing typical of pounding curbs on a racetrack, or daily street obstacles. BimmerWorld TA16 wheels are tested according to DOT/SAE and JWL/VIA standards (certification only required when selling wheels in Japan). Torture tested and proven at all levels of competitive racing, including years of wheel-to-wheel (literally) IMSA pro racing.
Machined Metal: a bright silver that appears polished and lets the alloy shine. The deep clearcoat still allows the machine marks to show.
Machined Liquid Anthracite: a dynamic darker color that can jump between black and anthracite with hints of bronze and aubergine depending on the lightNote:
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. These wheels, like many wheels, are not compatible with 10mm wheel spacers. We recommend using 12mm spacers whenever possible, as 10mm hubcentric spacers have inherent design limitations that prevent them from sitting flush. ** Not for Cars with CCB (Carbon Ceramic Brake) Option. ** Only for BMWs with 72.56mm Center Bore!
These wheels use the standard / usual BMW hub bore size of 72.56mm. Some BMWs, such as the 1997-2003 E39 5 series, have a larger and more unique bore size of 74.1mm, which will not work with most BMW wheels. Please call us if you have questions.
