Hey guys, I'm thinking of getting either VMR VB3's or v710's for my Alpine White zhp. I want to have them custom finished, and I want them the same shade as the 135m wheels that come with the zhp package. How would you describe this color?

Also, what is the difference between staggered vs squared? the edges?

squared is same size front and rear. staggered has wider rims in the rear. sport package has staggered rims from the factory.

Depends what you want to do with it man. You can have 19s and still go pretty damn low but you will have to play around with fenders, offsets, spacers, camber etc. If you go with 18s you will be able to go lower definetley. It's all personal preference I guess. I just got 19s installed with HKS coils on my sedan and I think it looks fine (I was hesitant about going with 19s just like you).

just picked up these winter wheels/tires from a fellow e46 owner in michigan for $300... boring 17s with Dunlop SP winter tires that have only seen 2 winters on them...Will be putting them on this weekend and the CSL's will go into hibernation... a great deal if you ask me

19's just look ten times bigger than 18's imo haha... But tires are soooo much cheaper for 18's... and I might not have to mess with the fenders if I slam it with 18's? And 19's are likely to bend where I live.. idk I guess i should go with 18's
