From their site:
"TITAN 7 T-S5 is a fully forged wheel designed completely with performance in mind. Pressurized with 10,000 TONS of industry leading pressure to give you a wheel that is incredibly strong while giving you all of the performance attributes you need in a track focused wheel. Upon close inspection you will notice strength adding ridges which have been strategically placed to give the wheel rigidity while keeping weight to a minimum. The split 5 spoke design was chosen for its motorsports heritage and track worthy structure. Each wheel from Titan 7 features traction improving bead seat knurling, beefed up inner rim flange for durability and strength, and logo machined accents. The T-S5 is designed for each application to clear all popular after market big brake kits while achieving maximum concavity. All wheels are durability tested according to JWL standards to ensure safety while you perform. Authentic performance from Titan 7. Forged for All."

Installed over the weekend. Then immediately tested on the track at Willow Springs Raceway.
How they looked wrapped in RE-71R 255/35 and lowered on Eibach Pro-Kit.
No rubbing under hard cornering.

I plan on getting those when it's time to get wheels. Either in a 45 or a 35 offset.

do you by chance have any side shots of the whole car?

No torque steer to report!
May we know your Wheel Alignment spec like Camber, Toe, etc

I'm considering 18x9.5 +33 wheels but note sure what tires i should get. I have 255/35 in mind or even 255/40.

what do you think?

255 at the least. 265 is what I would run on a wheel that wide

Got mine yesterday from trackparts.ch They look awesome and are light as f*** :D

But I'm not sure how hard I have to fasten the valve stems? The instruction is not very clear. How much torque is needed?

Oh thats a good question. I believe it should be around 13 newton meters or approx 9 ft-lbs.
