Any questions on offsets or concerns with order feel free to pm me. Just send me a pm with what color, offsets, and if you want the BMW center caps ($30 extra).
Here's some info about the wheels from the Modbargains website:
ModBargains is proud to offer you the BRAND NEW FORGESTAR Wheel Lineup with the latest technology in wheel production to bring you the best of both worlds. This brand new lineup utilizes a combination of the best methods of forging and casting methods both in the same wheel. This is called Flow Form Casting, and is used by companies such as BBS and Enkei. These wheels are made to order and can be made to fit your BMW with a large range of offsets.

Flow Form Casting is a production procedure that turns the wheel (or rim section) over a special mandrel and three hydraulic rollers using tremendous pressure. The pressure and turning then force the rim area to form against the mandrel, creating the shape and width of the rim. During Flow Forming, the rim actually "flows" down to create the full rim width. During Flow Forming, pressure applied to the cast rim actually changes its mechanical properties, so its strength and impact values become similar to those of a forged rim. That translates to up to 15% less weight when compared to a standard cast wheel.

CERTIFIED BY: SAE JWL VIA DOT Check it out HERE!

Warranty Info!!!
Forgestar warrants that wheels manufactured by Forgestar will be free from structural failure as long as the original retail purchaser owns the product. Forgestar further warrants to the original purchaser that products manufactured by Forgestar will be free from defects in material and workmanship under normal and intended use for a period of one year from retail purchase.

HERE is the link to more info on the wheels from the Modbargains website.

HERE is the link to Forgestars Homepage. Check out the Gallery...S W E E T rides there!

Kevin and Ron at Modbargains did a great job with my 19" order. They answered all my questions and kept me in the loop throughout the entire transaction!
Thanks!

Whats the widest I can go in the rear? And what offsets would I need. Looking at 8.5 up front and ?? in back? Staggered of course. Want it to be a neutral tire size...no stretch...about 2 inches of sidewall. I have no idea about wheels. Just engines...Excuse the lack of knowledge.

For the car listed in your sig, I would recommend F 8.5 ET 35 and R could go 9.0 or 10.0 ET 35-38 with a 245/40 up front and 275/35 in the rear. This would be a good set up for the street.

The wheels are SAE approved, check original post for info and link. I will add you to the list!!!

Let me find out if they can get tires. Shipping would be more expensive though. I would recommend just getting the wheels and mounting tires near you. But i will still find out.

Remember guys and gals, the price of the wheels depends on how many confirmed buyers when the group decides to go ahead with the purchase. You can change your mind on widths and offsets if you like if you are undecided. Lets get the list going and add some more names!!!

I'll have to see if we can find his original order, but I think he did 18x8.5 and 18x9 rear - for his sedan. Again when your orders come in we will work with you depending on your suspension, what you want to achieve etc.

As to concavity it's really the width you choose - with the E46 I would imagine it being a 19x10 rear high offset will give you a deep concavity. One thing you will notice, is the concavity is a true concavity - it starts from the begining of the spokes and goes into center, it doesn't just drop in starting from middle like some wheels a 'cup like' concavity.

Again not the offset as the factor but the with.


On a side note something that I forgot to address - besides it passing higher then TUV, yes the wheels are also stamped and passed JWL and VIA of course - really easily. All testing data is shown in links - one of the few wheel manufacturers out there that hasn't hidden their testing information and shares it with the public.
