Mein Auto: 1999 M Coupe
rs110 wheel on m-coupe/roadster

Hi guys,

As some of you already know I’ve been looking into using the rs110 wheel that the e46 m3 guys are having made by Champion Motorsport. They are developing a fitment that is specific to them in 18x9.5”.

This wheel can’t be used on the front of the m-coupe (rear could with spacer) but we can have this wheel made in a fitment SPECIFIC to our M-coupe/roadster for width and offset.

right now this is the initial suggestion:

Wheels are ONE PIECE FORGED in the following sizes:

front: 18x8.5”
rear: 18x10”

the rear wheel would be designed with a lip that fits with the character of the m-coupe/roadster. The stock rear wheel has a 3” lip from the valve stem.

Weight would be an estimated 18-19 lbs in the 18x10” configuration. Lighter of course for the front wheel.

for comparison:
stock front, 17x7.5” = 21 lbs
stock rear, 17x9.0” = 24 lbs.

Offset will be done so that spacers will not be necessary in the rear.

pricing will be around $2900-3200. We need a minimum of 10 people to make this happen. ( i have 2 people in addition to myself that are serious as of 5/21). Once we have necessary interest we can proceed with CAD drawings to finalize the look and pricing.

more info and current details can be found at the following link.

If your interested please e-mail me rukman@optonline.net

thanks!
Rukman

You will never get 10 people to agree.
If you can get 10 to do 17 inch wheels with stock width and offset, I'm in.
