The all-new 2016 BMW M4 GTS is an exclusive technological masterpiece, which elevates the performance of the BMW M4 Coupe to an impressive new level and therefore comes with a hefty price tag – $134,200, but that price tag doesn’t include the lightweight carbon compound wheels.
The M Carbon Compound Wheels are sized 9.5 J x 19 front and 10.5 J x 20 rear, displaying innovative material characteristics bringing a significant reduction in unsprung and rotating masses and therefore have a positive effect on the car’s acceleration and deceleration, steering responses and vibration levels.
Designed for the race track yet also approved for road use, the wheels are a first on a production vehicle boasting a CFRP/aluminium-composite construction. They enable around seven kilograms to be shaved off the weight of a BMW M4 GTS standard wheels which are made of lightweight forged aluminum.
The wheels are fitted with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires adapted specially for the BMW M4 GTS (front: 265/35 ZR19, rear: 285/30 ZR20).
With an additional cost of 12,500 euros – US pricing is not available at the moment – the lightweight wheels are not for bargain hunters, but rather for customers looking for maximum performance on the track.
While in Munich attending the delivery of 45 BMW M4 GTS race cars, we’ve snapped some photos of the innovative wheels.
