The BimmerWorld View - Lots of people put the nice wheels on for street use and something cheaper on track, but in our experience, forged track wheels are an investment that pays off. Now, through our race wheel technical partner, we are able to bring you a true ultra-premium wheel at a price that makes them a no-brainer. Forged wheels are lighter and stiffer than their cast counterparts, which means your car 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 pro team, we have a huge number of forged wheels we have used for 6+ years, while even the best cast only last a few weekends - spend the money up front and enjoy the savings later.
TE:AL TA16 Forged Wheel Specs
The BimmerWorld TE:AL Forged Race Wheel utilizes the most advanced wheel design and manufacturing techniques available in the world. The TA16 model employs a traditional cross-spoke design with 16 attachment points and cutting edge features, extensive FEA, and advanced manufacturing processes to make the strongest, lightest wheel possible.
Ridged cross-spoke design and internal outer-barrel strengthening rib for ultimate strength, rigidity/camber stiffness, and durability
Massive Caliper Clearance - 18" versions fit up to 380mm brakes
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 (all except E39 5 series)
Accepts BMW factory center cap (not included)
Limited lifetime warranty
Wheels are 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 have gone through rigorous testing and certification by JWL/VIA and proven at all levels of competitive racing, including years of wheel-to-wheel (literally) IMSA pro racing.
Note: 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. We have sized these wheels so they should not require spacers for most applications. However, when spacers are necessary pay close attention to the fitment of the spacer to the inside of the wheel. The spacer must sit completely flush to the back of the wheel with zero gap. Our wheels are not compatible with 10mm spacers. For 12mm spacers check fitment closely as the chamfer on the spacer may not fit with the wheel. Use the paper test to confirm.
Priced per wheel (individually).
