No 18" V701s just yet. But the 19" V701s weigh 26lbs/wheel and cost $249 a wheel.

I would buy these RIGHT NOW if they came in 18" !

Seriously, please keep us updated on any release date for 18" size.

Thanks, Chris

Guys, just got my 19" V701's on my 335 LCI and the ride is soooooo much better than the stock regular non flats tires (I went with Hankook Ventus V12 Evo). Seriously, the drive is like night and day betweenn the two. Unless there is an overwhelming reason to go 18's, I'd highly recommend the 19's. They look better, are inexpensive and aren't any heavier than stock 18's...actually think they are a couple lbs per wheel lighter. At least they felt that way when I changed them out.

Thanks for the compliments, guys.

Remmib - the rears are actually ET45 with 275 tires. Attached another picture to show the tire sitting on the inside edge of the wheel well.

If these were 18s I'd be looking hard at them.

18s with a higher offset to be able to stuff more tire under the rear of the 135i and I'd own them right now. The more offset the better IMO. You can always space out, but you can't go the other way if you're rubbing.

Thanks for everyone's patience - The V701 18" has been in development ever since the first shipment arrived. The unofficial ETA would be before Summer sets in. Hang in there!
