Richland Forged custom GT4 wheels

I believe I have the very first installed set of these wheels. Opted for 19" for more compliant ride and cheaper tires

I must say dealing with Lyle @ Richland throughout the entire process was an absolute pleasure. Thanks for the great buying experience!

Rained on the day they got mounted so the pics are not all that great. When I do get a chance to go out in the sun (when it does come out again in Seattle), I'll get some high res pics.

Rear -



Rear quarter -



From behind -



Front quarter -



From the front -



Front profile -



Fitting is impeccable. Stock tire sizes 255/35/19 front and 275/35/19 rear MPS4S. Only drove it a short distance to reset TPMS but going over the same bumps compared to 666M, the ride is less harsh.

For the CCB people, I have no idea if it will fit but here's a pic of front brake clearance -



I am able to comfortable put my fingers between caliper and drum. Granted my fingers aren't that big but it is just a tad bit less clearance compared to the 666M.

Hey Andrae what's up dude?! I hope you are doing well. I finally got that muffler on! I should send you some pics!

To answer your questions these wheels are different than the 763's. These are technically modled after the GT4 wheels (which the 763's are modeled after) and these are offered in 0.5" wider widths at the moment with slightly more aggressive (yet very conservative) offsets. Richland is officially pondering the idea of a slightly more aggressive offset than this as well.

I was allowed to test fit one of their 19X9.5 wheels which I documented here- https://f80.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh...1626060&page=2

I got in on the special pre-production pricing, so I would suggest reaching out to them directly for production pricing. It wouldn't be fair to compare production vs pre-production order pricing.

They are different from the 763Ms in that the curvature of the spoke are more round vs the more edgy turn on the 763M. These are modeled after the GT4 used on the DTM M3 race car wheels made by SAI Motorsports. It could be said that these are the predecessors of the 763M street wheels.

Officially the specs are -
19x9.5 fronts at 22lbs
19x10.5 rears at 22.8lbs

I weighted them on my bathroom scale at 22.4lbs all around which is within the uncalibrated scale measurements.

Personally I think the offset is perfect as it is. Any more aggressive, you run into the risk of rubbing which some wouldn't care about. But remember, as the wheels protrude more, it will also kick up a whole lot more debris hitting your rear quarter panels.

Iím looking at possibly getting these but in gold, Iím leaning toward the 19Ē, are you still loving them? Also what offsets did you go with? I want a littler more aggressive then stock but not so aggressive that the side of my car gets destroyed.

Thank you they look great!!!

Yup stock suspension. Sorry I forgot to answer the original question. I basically went with the default offset ET26 Fronts and ET35 Rears.

Love the wheels (waiting on mine) but I can't believe either of you don't take issue w/the height. Is there a specific reason that you don't want to lower?

Symmetry, scraping, and lower typically means less suspension travel which typically means a slightly harsher ride. Some like their cars skimming the ground, some like being able to go over speed bumps, occasional unavoidable pot holes and driveways without having to go down to crawling speeds
