Love the new wheel. If I still had my car, I'd sell my ARC-8 and pick up these for sure. Can't wait to see some pics of BMW's sporting these.

Agreed, can't wait to really see these on some cars.
The Photoshop images just don't do them justice.

These wheels have the same clearances that the ARC-8's have right?
So that they clear BBK's?

Our new wheels have even better brake clearance than our ARC-8's

We do not have any set ETA's just yet for more fitments in Satin Black, but it may be something we offer in the future. Our initial release only included the most popular fitments and finishes, but we will be sure to "fill in the gaps" with future production.

Love the FL-5. Looking for a set of wheels for my 2006 E91! Really need to keep the weight down on this Xi wagon. Would the 18x8.5's work with 245/40 tires?

Sport suspension on the wagon. I'm thinking of the Anthracite with the medium lip.

Thank you for the kind words. Our FL-5 wheels would look great on your E91 We recommend pairing 235/40-18 tires with out 18x8.5 ET35 wheels. 245/40-18 would fit, but they do sit a bit tall. Another fitment that you could run would be our 18x9 ET30 with 255/35-18 tires all around. This will be a direct fit on your car and look great

Any chance of getting that in the hyper black? It looks a little brighter than the Anthracite. I think the Monaco blue tends to hide really dark wheels.

We appreciate the feedback! We do not have any plans to produce these wheels in a Hyper Black finish at this time, but it may be something we consider in the future!

Matt, I am about to pull the trigger. Will the 18x9 with 255/35-18 require any mods to work? Would a camber adjustment be necessary or recommended?
I will track this car for fun.

That's great to hear! The 18x9" ET30 wheels paired with 255/35-18 tires is a very good performing setup, maximizing wheel and tire width under the front fenders without having to dial in gobs of negative camber. It typically is a direct fit on stock suspension and some coilovers. With that said, tolerances are tight towards the suspension, and when using KW coilovers (known for robbing a bit of inner clearance in comparison to other suspension designs) you will likely need to incorporate spacers to ensure proper clearances and then additional camber dialed in.
