Whew, just finished reading this thread from start to finish. While I typically surf these forums daily, for some reason I had never run across this thread before

I've got to say, you 10 or so guys who will be the first to have these wheels should be very excited. I can not wait to see the finished product on the M5. As for you M3Racer, once yours is complete, I may have to schedule a visit to see it in person

The ONLY way I will do any aftermarket wheel setup is with springs. Therefore, we are definitely going to have to meet up after your RAC wheels come in. Have you thought about doing the 275 front, 305 rear tires? Wow, just imagining the beast with 305's, lowered, and with these beautiful RG41 wheels has me excited

undecided on the tire size. The 305/275 setup has some speedo error consequences while the 255/285 or 255/295 comes out near perfect.

Be sure to check out the revs per mile on TireRack's site. Though you should simply be able to multiply out the size to calculate speedo error, different manufacturers rate their tires a bit differently, and can even vary with different lines.

Continental Conti Sport Contact 2 285/35R19 tires are rated at 776 revs per mile on a measuring rim width of 10.0". On our stock 9.5" rim width, it's a bit taller, so you're below 776 revs per mile. I'm not sure how much lower, but it shouldn't be too much, probably 765 or so.

The front 255/35R19 are rated at 904 revs per mile on a 9.0" rim. Again, on our stock 8.5" wide rim, it's a bit taller.

Anyone know which end the speedo is attached to? Is it the rear?

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.






Very cool - for an engineer anyways. How many more operations are left? You obviously have at least one more stamping operation to form the spokes. It would be great to see all the steps to a finished wheel.

Man - this thread is picking up a lot of steam again!! It makes the waiting even harder - this is the last thing I am waiting for to complete my car (for now at least). If they make the RG4's in 20's, I think I may have to get those, too. They both look so good.
