My Ride: 2006 BMW 325CI
My facelift coupe with brand new 18" VMR VB3! (PICTURES)

After owning my 2006 325ci for a few years, I finally got around to purchasing some new wheels. Ordered a wheel and tire package from Kevin at Velocity Motoring, who honestly made the whole purchasing process very easy and straight forward. He worked with me and gave me a host of different wheel/tire package options to get the total price including shipping to fit within my budget


Wheel Specs - 18" VMR VB3 (V713) Matte Black
Bolt Pattern: 5x120
Center Bore: 72.6
Front - 18 x 8.5 ET35
Rear - 18 x 9.5 ET45


Tire Specs
Kumho Ecsta 4x
Front - 225/40/18
Rear - 255/35/18


This is the first set of wheels I have ever purchased, and I am really happy with the way everything turned out. When you see these wheels in person, they look great - the pictures do not do justice to the concavity of the wheels. Let me know what you guys think of my new setup!

Can you maybe do some up close pix, also to get that good look out of your wheel on the car make sure the light is hitting it, stay away from the shad cause the color of wheels will take the entires look, and straighten out tires so ppl can see the wide stance from back, front, and the side. My opinion.

Thanks! I did the rear bumper strip with a sheet of white 3m vinyl. The color is not a 100% match, but its close enough. I was not a fan of how much the black plastic strip stood out on the rear bumper, but i didn't want to have it painted so vinyl was a good, cheap, non-permanent solution.

Ill try to get some more pics at some point this weekend.
