VMR VB3 fitment
 
I'm getting ready to pull the trigger on a set of 18 inch vb3's. My car is an 05' 325ci on stock sport suspension, and I have no plans to lower my car in the future. I think the best setup for me will be 18/8.5 front with 225/40/18 tires up front for a slightly stretched setup and 18/9.5 with 255/35/18's out back. The offset will be +40 front and +45 rear. With my coupe and stock suspension, I dont think i'll need any fender work, but I was wondering if the new wheels will be flush with the fenders without any spacers. If not, how much spacing will I need? Any pics of this setup on stock sport suspension?

Thanks everyone. I'm really excited about this! :woot:

Those are the recommended wheel and tire sizes for your vehicle. Put the wheels and tires on first, then you can determine if you will need spacers. It comes down to personal preference. If you do want to push the wheels out a bit, you can measure how much room you have to work with before you start to rub. Good luck! :thumbsup:

Ive got the same exact setup that you are describing, except I have 235/40/18 front tires.

You wont need spacers unless you are looking for some poke. They are set up very nicely for our cars.

Those are the recommended sizes for your car, and we try and make the wheels fit as flush as possible without causing any fender clearance issues. If you'd like to space them out further in the future we can't guarantee that it will be a rub free fit. In regards to whether or not it will be pretty flush, I think Andy2108's photos speak for themselves. :)
