      Breaking News:

      Forge Motorsport is pleased to announce that our US office has been appointed as the official US importer of 3SDM wheels out of the UK!

      www.3sdm.co.uk

      Production of the highly anticipated 0.05 design is currently under way with the first bulk shipment expected to arrive in the US sometime in June! We are working to have a dedicated US website live very shortly as well!



      Look for more information to be available at the Southern Worthersee show in a few weeks, where we will also be taking orders for the wheels!

      Until the US website goes live, please contact us at 3sdm@forgemotorsport.com with any enquiries.

      No, they don't. I would suggest a 10-15mm spacer for clearance/stance.

      We have them on my buddies B5 S4 with 20mm spacers and they are perfect with a 215/35

      Its hard to imagine many people spending over $4000 on wheels and still having to run spacers...

      He was asking about the 1-pc wheels that cost $275 a wheel.

      The 3-pc wheels are built to spec and can be tailored for brake clearance.

      We test fitted my 18"x8.5" et 42 18"x9.5" et 40 wheels on my buddies S4 and it needed a small spacer to clear the front brakes.

      That makes more sense, my bad.
