New Kosei wheels on sale at Tirerack

I don't know any details or 335i caliper clearance, but I thought I'd share it for a great deal if you're in for a nice set of track wheels.

It looks like it'd be real tight. I believe stock offset is 34mm front, 37 in the rear. The Kosei's here are 40mm offset... it'd probably work with thick enough spacer though.

Offset is fine. I run the Kosei K1 wheels which have the exact same dimensions and offset (17x8.5 et40) without any spacers.

Though I gotta say that I have maybe 1 or 2mm on the strut side, and 1 or 2mm around the stock 335i calipers, so these are tight as hell.

Super light and decently strong wheels nonetheless.

With 30 offset the Koseis would have been perfect! I now favor my Apex Arc 8 over my Kosies K1 mainly because of that, secondly because of looks.

Agreed. My next set will most likely be Apex mainly due to strength and size flexibility; I wanna get 285 square, perhaps R comps.

The Apex wheels are 2x the price. Wheel spacers are a must, not sure about the 1 mm clearance ESP at the track with tight turns.

I donno.. but it worked fine with me without any spacers. That may be because I got stock struts and 245mm tires.
