18x4.5 skinny wheel for drag racing. Demand check.
Hey everybody. Ive been wanting to get skinnies for a while now but the only options to clear our brakes are not very affordable.

I am in talks with a company and they are willing to make me some from scratch. However i will need to get a large amount of wheels (100+) to keep costs down. Im trying to see is there a demand for these in the bmw community. Since i am part of it and would love to help the platform with racing and further success. I dont have exact pricing but would probably be one of the most affordable skinny wheels we could get. They would be 18x4.5. They would ofcourse also fit gm vehicles so im fairly sure there is a demand for them.

Any feedback is greatly apreciated.

Note: I am not a vendor nor do i look to profit from this more then just paying for my time and effort. Im a regular guy who wants to race and help the community.

Figure RaceStars would have one, just have to do a stud conversion and probably a spacer.

Also, a cheap option is a gto spare wheel( just change the tire out). I will be getting some this weekend to ensure they do fit with no issues. I don't really care for skinnies, but getting them for really cheap. I had skinnies on my last 4th gen fboby and was always worried if I had to make a sharp turn.
