I was curious about something, I have read the entire thread and while the question as been asked I have not seen the answer

If someone who purchased these wheels (in the group buy or later after they are available to the public) need a replacement unit because of a crash or hit a curb or something like that, can it be available in a timely manner?

I realise that all this wait time is for the creation (R&D and production) but will there be any inventory produced afterward?

RAC maintains stock to replaced damaged wheels if necessary. If we all bent all our wheels, we might have an issue though.

Question Any possibility hooking them up with a set of Run Flats?

There is a 255/30/20 that matches up well to the 295/25/20; there is obviously the 275/30/20 that pairs well to the 305/20/20; there is also a very intersting choice from pirelli in theirThe Pirelli P Zero System, albiet a tad taller, offers a very interesting choice that would get my attention - a 245/35/20 and a 285/30/20. This is a next lever tire and frankly, for street performance, this one has a strong reputation. Ths is also easily accomodated by these wheel sizes and may represent an excellent middle ground in oarticular where you drive wet weather a lot or for the summer ( i always prefer a tad thinner front tire in the summer - it reduces hydro-planing a lot) .

The speedo is electronically interpolated from rotation, so, yes, regarding diameters - the tire will effect the speedo to some degree depending on the diameters. It is ordinarily not all that consequential. I have lived with it for years on all my M3's. No easy fix for this.
I need run flats!!!!! That's an absolutely and positively yes... RUNFLATS.
Can I put runflats on them????

is there a wheel like this but without lip? i love the M3 CSL wheel with spokes all the way to the edge. i think that will look better since the wheel will visually looks bigger.

nice wheel regardless.

Zapper is correct in that RAC will maintain spares that will only be availble to current owners should they need them. This is not or at least has not been common among many of the other boutique wheel manufacturers. I personally have heard horror stories regarding replacments from other brands and making people wait 1-3 months for a replacment.

Let's see if we can get Shep to chime in on this question. I myself am not too familiar with runflats or the sizes/brands available.

We have a wheel very similar in our RG4 19". Being forged it is of much higher quality and much stronger. Note also the pictures on the RAC website. The wheels fit much more aggressivly than the other brands.

Still, we see alot of people purchase this design in the cheaper cast offerings available. General most choose to save $$$ vs buying our stonger forged and better fitting version.

We may be able to build it in a 20 for the M5 if there was demand for a high quality forged version. It would be a 2-3 lbs heavier each vs. the RG41s... still light given other options out there. Certainly they are a great looking design.

I checked with Shep and he said he did not see any runflat in 20s on Tirerack.com. What runflats are you interested in using?
