Good news. Keep us updated.

Not sure if I understand the need for extreme offsets, especially with those holding out for 18s for performance reasons. I would think most like myself would not want to deal with spacers and want these to fit a slightly wider than oem setup. Square setup would be ideal.

Just letting you know you'd have another sale if you had 18" available.

MMMMmmm I LOVE my 701's. I had VMR CSL's before, but I wanted to freshen things up a bit.

These 701's were the ticket!

Very nice. The 18s cannot get here soon enough. I won't "downgrade" wheels w a heavier set just for looks.

Wish more vendors understood that and introduced 18" wheels first, or maybe at the same time as the 19" wheels.

18's are in development! And FYI, our 19's with tires are no heavier than most factory wheel & tire combos. Its actually lighter than certain wheel/tires that come on the E9X M3's. If anything they will feel the same

I think we are all expecting 19lb 18ers w all of this "development".

Beyond the weight issue there is also the generally higher cost of 19" rubber and the pothole prone concern.

There's also the wider availability of 18" tires -- more sizes, from more manufacturers to choose from.

And yes, <20 lbs is always good!

If these don't ship soon I may have to "settle" for some Forgestar F14s and I don't want to do that. Don't make me do that.

I hear ya! And thats why we have both 18's and 19's in our lineup. These will be ready well before Spring time comes around. We usually will have an official announcement but I guess this will be a teaser

Oh sure, our Paypal balance could use a boost! You can be #1 but the only catch is that I wouldn't be able to give you an ETA

Once you have a eta I will be happy to be #1. I guess I should have asked this first, but is pricing going to be on par with your 19" version?
