It’s amazing how the BMW M3 Coupe has been the industry’s benchmark, celebrated over generations and then vanished overnight. In name, at least. Enter the all-new F80 M3 Sedan and the first-ever BMW M4 Coupe, a reinvention of a legendary car. With the launch of the new F80 M3 Sedan, and now the all-new BMW M4 Coupe, a new chapter in wheel development begins. Based on our meticulous and vehicle-specific engineering process, we first begin by carefully measuring the vehicle braking system. With the new addition of an optional state-of-the-art M Carbon Ceramic Brakes package, it’s necessary to make sure the correct data for both the standard and CCB braking systems are collected in order to develop wheels that are geometrically compatible with both systems. After the brake profiles have been developed, we proceed with a detailed digital measure of both front and rear suspension systems, front fenders, and rear quarter panels to determine accurate clearances.
Our developing process allows us to quickly create wheel programs for newly-released platforms with specifications that can be individually adjusted to the customer’s personal preferences. Factors such as curb weight, weight distribution, acceleration and braking g-forces are also used to develop a wheel that is weight-optimized for the actual vehicle application that is designed for. This research allows our team to create a vehicle specific fitment that is matched with the lightweight architecture we are known for.
Below you will find our most recent development for the all-new BMW M4. This Alpine White BMW M4 sports our 20-inch MonoForged™ VS53 Concave wheels finished in Hand-Brushed Tinted Copper. The setup consists of a 20x9.5-inch Front, 20x11-inch Rear configuration wrapped in Hankook V12 Evo2 255/30/20 & 285/30/20 tires. To lower the car a set of the just-released H&R SuperSport systems was installed. Stay tuned for future development for both the F80 M3 Sedan & the all-new F82 M4 Coupe.
