Alufelgen CS7 > VMR VB3 in terms of best looking rep csl wheels HANDS DOWN!
I agree, stretched tires are the lamest.
I agree, alufelgen are a nicer wheel.
I disagree that you cannot get flush WITHOUT spacers with VMR.

My specs are in my sig and I'm as flush as one can get with these cars and only a bafoon would call my tire fitment stretched.

Alufelgen offers a CSL replica with split 8s.

This should clear things up.

I see, so why the hell did someone post pictures of a car with SF71 wheels and say they are the closest CSL Replicas?

Nice wheels, ill probable get 19x9.5/10" combo, did you have to get a ridiculous camber kit to get them to look flush? did you use With 245/35/19's for both front and back?

VMR does not make 19x10 ET15, they have 19x10 ET25 VB3s though.

The ALUFELGEN is a win, but I have to admit the VMR's look good.

I have a set of VB3's being used as a track wheel. Nurburgring has not been kind to them. After 50+ laps they are still solid and great.
