I thought I'd post the blueprints BC sent of the wheels (see previous post). If you click on the picture you can get a more reasonable viewing size.

Are these for the BC-Forged wheels your referenced earlier?

Yes, same spec with a few changes on finish. Correction, the F Type in the photo has CCB brakes so offsets may be different. I posted a link in the previous post that includes a set of pictures with the one you posted in the set.

I posted the BC forged finishes box above. Sending it back as wheels are ten days into the order process. Waiting impatiently for wheels to come and winter to go.....

That’s pretty cool. You didn’t go with purple wheels?

No, I was tempted as my car is white and am told any color will work (joking of course). I am not able to get the gloss black inner barrel. I was told as my lip choice was matte gunmetal, my barrel would need to be matt black, then later in the week was told no black at all, it had to be matte gunmetal, the same as the lip. I agreed to the change, although I would have preferred the gloss black inner barrel.

The two piece wheels offer just enough more choices to make your head spin. As the car is white, anything should look good, right? (even translucent candy purple, but that color was not in the sample set). You may be perceiving the coffee color as purple?

Above photo. Wheels are done and ready to be shipped. Should have them in a week. The photo isn't the best, but that's what they sent from overseas. Can't see the inner barrels but they arematte gunmetal to match the matte gunmetal lip. the rest is gloss gunmetal wheesl and diamond cut faces with black exposed hardware. Rears are 20x11, fronts 20x 9.5. Should be hell to clean, but I am having them ceramic coated. Looks like the wheels will arrive before the good whether. I also ordered black and chrome lug nut. Will see which looks best.

Thanks! You and Lance set the bar. They are two piece. I'm liking the concave rears too. The floor is of the manufacturing plant. Food for thought for my garage though. I'm thinking it's not the best photo, so hopefully they'll look even better in person.

Be certain to carefully check for clearance with the front rotors before you tighten things down. Should you have a problem, I can overnight some 6mm spacers you can use until you get the right thickness.

Thanks Lance, much appreciated as always. The front offsets are 42mm.

You have different wheels, so may not be an issue, but at a 43 offset, my wheels had a 1-2mm interference.

Lance, I would hope these guys could get it right, having done shop drawings (hopefully overlaid onto a section cut of the wheel setup). They did do the other f type I and Tork posted photo of, but that had CCB brake package. They are guaranteed fit, so if they are wrong, I will need to get a new set of fronts. Jut looking at the photos and comparing to the BRG CCB f type, it appears my rears are more concave, although that just may be an illusion.

@Tork-Unhinged: My lug nuts arrived ahead of my wheels yesterday, as they were shipped from PK Design. They seem somewhat inexpensive. What did you use with your new wheels; oem ? PK Design supplied? or somethimg else?

You have to use the PK supplied lug nuts as they are a spherical or conical seat nut that are properly shaped for the wheels. The OEM nuts are a mag seat with washer and wonít fit those wheels properly. You could order something else that fits, but I didnít find the quality of those provided to be sub-standard.
