Question Upgrading from JCW Spoke wheels

I am currently running on stock JCW Track Spoke 501 wheels (tires: Pirelli SotoZero 3 RunFlat Rims: 7Jx17 ET54 PCD 5x112).




When spring / summer comes I am planning to by 18' summer wheels with sport tires.


Currently looking at OZ Racing Formula HLT 5H Matt Black 7.5Jx18 Et50 5x112 on Michelin Pilot Supper Sport 205/40 R18 86Y (non RunFlat)
or same tires on OZ Racing Ultraleggera ET50...
while the design is personal to everyone I am looking for specs without any spacers.


Since JCW callipers need to fit in... I was wondering if anyone had experience fitting ET50 wheels on ? I saw bella_jcw had Pro Race 1.2 alloys fit in without spacers with 8Jx18 ET45


Also I am not sure about the Tire Pressure Monitors PDC (36 10 6 856 209) - do they need to be fitted with the wheels as well? taken from winter wheels?


I would welcome your 18' wheels (brand/specs/summer tires). Thanks in advance!

Choices are limited if you go for JCW brakes as the calipers are huge.

Useful link for some aftermarket wheels that fit F56 JCW

18 foot wheels should clear them nicely.

Great info! I can only assume that the prices listed are for a set and not for each wheel?! Does anyone have any idea what sort of import costs there would be for buying from Germany in the UK?

No import duties whilst we are still in the EU.

The link can be used as a guide. Most if not all the wheels listed can be purchased in UK also

Their prices on the link are far cheaper than the UK if the prices are for a set, I'd like the Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2's like the challenge models get but over here the set is around £1100, the website posted is quoting 770eu which in todays rate is around £650!

TD 1.2 in Challenge sizes were available for less than £400 on Black Friday at Demon Tweeks and the price normally is only around £552
