I'm in love with VMR wheels!

Long way from you guys in Finland, we don't see VMR wheels.
I'm buying now one set for my 330ci.

I have red every pages from this thread, but want to make sure am I ordering right set.

To the front 19x8,5 ET20
And to rear 19x10 ET38
Wheels will be super silver/hyper silver VB3's.
(Difference between super and hyper silver?)

That kind of set will clear coilovers? And will poke a little?
I'm not scared to do major fender work, so no worry.
Can I get it low enough with 19's?

What the difference between staggered and unstaggered?


And one more thing, can you recommend any European dealer to me?

Thanks!

Which wheel locks does everyone suggest on these wheels? Kinda hard to choose. I want something safe but affordable.

That's a custom powder coated set too, just in case anyone is wondering. They are Galaxy Black, and the customer added a white vinyl pinstripe to the wheels once he received them.

As far as the wheel locks go, RAD USA Direct sells locks we have confirmed to work.

Oh, so pretty. I like that fitment. Is that on the sport stock height. I'm so excited if it is. I'm definitely leaning towards 19s now.

That I'm not sure of. The owner never specified what suspension he's using, if I recall correctly.
