Use the caps that came with them and just cover them with OEM BMW wheel decals

I figure since there are VW's in this thread, no one should mind an E36.

Anyway, wheels are VB3's

Front: 19x8.5 et 40 235/35/19
Rear: 19x10 et 25 (12mm spacers) 265/30/19

What kind of flares are those? We just recently mounted some 19x10 +38's with 255's on a E36M3 and it looked great...

The flares were made out of the rear fenders of a donor E36 and the rear bumper and side skirts were customized with fiberglass.

WOW! These are sexy as hell!! What ET are these wheels?
Are they 9.5 both front and rear?

It will be great if op or someone can give more details
---- x ----
EDIT: Okay ....reading through some more posts here in this mammoth thread, i realized that these are 9.5 all around with 10mm spacers to lower the offset to 35 - the fenders are rolled:

If i ran these 9.5s without the spacers - on a non lowered facelifted coupe, would fender rolling still be required? I dont really want to lower due to bad road conditions and will resort to fender rolling only if absolutely necessary.

VMR: a price quote on these rims would be good - sent you a pm.

^ No you won't need to roll the fenders. The only issue you may have is if you run 265's in the rear you may rub with passengers.

You thinking about doing a square set-up? What size tires?
