Best 19" lightweight track wheel that clears stock CCB's?

Hi all,

Just purchased a 2015 M4 with CCB's. What are the lightest 19" track wheels that clear these brakes?

Thanks

What other wheels would you recommend that are more wallet friendly? Let's say sub $4K price tag to give a ballpark number

Titan 7 are $2.7k per set but around 20lb each (similar weight to m4 mt4 wheels)

I use Apex flow formed wheels in 18" size, which is a very popular and cost effective option for track wheels. They are also offered in 19". Apex recently introduced a forged series that are lighter, stronger but more expensive. They are not the lightest, but are a decent cost compromise.

EC7ís have great brake clearance, one of the few they can clear 18ís with 380 bbk

If TE37ís in 19ís can clear, that would be very ideal for the price. 18ís can clear 380 Brembo GT

Nice! Much more reasonably priced and are fully forged wheels! Sounds like those will be hard to beat.

I've definitely been eyeing those Apex wheels (specifically the EC7 style). If I didn't have CCB's I would most likely go with the 18" EC7-R's. Unfortunately it doesn't seem like APEX is offering the EC7-R's in 19" as of yet.

Ahh great call. Forgot about the TE37's, love that wheel.

Thanks all for the recommendations so far guys, much appreciated

True, and they offer very decent weight given their large barrel diameter. Apex now even offer even lighter flow formed wheels than the EC-7 with similar barrel diameters for brake clearance.

@richlandforged just got a new 19 wheel to clear CCB. They're relatively light, fully forged and one of the best looking wheels. Talk to Lyle very nice guy! If I hadn't ended up spending my money elsewhere this is the route I would've gone.

How about Advan GT? I thought they were sub 19lb for the 20Ē so should be similar to te37 weights

Welp, just when I thought I found my next wheel, turns out 19" TE37's don't fit over the CCB's, only 20" according to this thread:

Saw those, I liked the idea of a GT4 rep wheel, according to their forum post they are the same weight as the stock 437M wheels (granted being .5 inches wider is nice).

I'm open to those, just need to find out if the 19's clear the CCB's
