    For those in search of 15x8 Koseis -- looks like 15x8 Koseis are available at Tirerack.com again.

    That's awesome!
    ..too bad I paid top dollar for a every used set I could find when we thought they were gone forever. I'm now sitting on 5 sets.
    Great news though. I wonder if they found some leftover stock or if they've started production again.

      How do you think these wheels would hold up on the street?

        5 sets, mick! I'm actually down to two sets after one was stolen. I'm very happy to see them available again.

        They do hold up totally fine on the street. I ran a set of 15x7s on my 325is for years.

            hehehe... that's a funny question... how does one of the best all around track wheels for the E30 M3 hold up on the street?

            Umm.. pretty well. [peace]


            I had 10 of these in 15" and never had an issue.. and now I have replaced them with 17s..

              I searched around on this, but had a question on the 17". What offset are you running and what spacers if any? I have a set of 17" on my wife E46 330 with winter tires and was planning on using them with spacers for my track tires, but the 15" are enticing.

              Thanks

                Go for a set of 15"

                A set of spacers + longer lug bolts will cost you $300 from Turner. For another $200 you could have a full set of proper fitting 15" Koseis.

                The additional $200 will be offset by the savings on your first set of 15" track tires as opposed to 17".

                      Out of curiosity I checked w/ Tirerack to find out if this is old stock or in production. Good news -- the wheels are actively in production.

                        @Ryan, nice. Did you decide on tires?

                        Good news on the production. I hope I don't need any for a while but it's nice to know thy're makng them again. Those other 15x8 wheels they had (TSW?) won't fit over my brakes.

                          Not yet on tires. Most likely Toyos or Nittos to start and then adjust from there.

                          Just ordered steel front control arms and Bimmerworld control arm bushing/mount. Front subframe has been reinforced already. Going to work on the front and then move to the rear.

                          Thanks again
