Well, the bottom line is that...... this is my problem, my wife wants runflats on her car, therefore 20" or 19's are not as important as long as they are runflats and they are compatible with M5. Any suggestions?

Yeah awesome photoshopping Mikey..

I particularly like the way the logo came out in negative. That is how the caps will be.. black background with silver lettering. The motorsport colors are a nice touch too!

I saw a few questions unanswered:

yes, we will make spares - we will inventory the colors that were ordered and keep fronts and/or rears in stock.

I cannot find a single runflat in 20's - anybody?

Great job on the picture; wow! Big difference when the real wheel is used instead of the CAD. When you finally see these wheels, regardless of how psyched up you may be or how how high your expectations are - the usual response is nearly always that the actual item exceeds expectations by a long shot. when you see the wheel(s) in the flesh - all of the attention to detail rises to the top.

The RG4 does look excellent. Still the RG41 will be dressier but in a mean way because of the lip. Straight on the 'B' flange rim ( ala the RG4) looks much more plain, more pedestrian though it is aggresive because it is so common on most race designs. Just my opinion having spent so many years and time considering such factors.

MikeyR..

If you haveone available.. can you email me a copy of the logo you used for the license plate? We have pros working on this but they cant seem to nail down the font like you have on the frame. If I show them your plate then maybe then they can get it right. Anything you have would be highly appreciated.. thx!

Jeff hard to say.. they are working on much more than just the RG41s. They could be anywhere but we do have our eta and are on schedule. We will hear word eventually. Usually we will hear something when the wheels go to finishing, and then once production is complete while they await a shipping container. Once we hear something we will let everyone know.

Not sure if these have been posted in this thread yet.. But here are some pics of billets at various stages of being spread forged. Pretty interesting how a single solid disk of aluminum is formed into a wheel barrel as you see here.
