offset DOES matter. your gonna have a more concave look with a +22 than say a +45. higher the offset number the more the inner hub of the rim moves outward, lower the number the more the inner hub moves inward.

It really depends on how you look at the wheel. Wheel design is definitely a mind game!

If you want to look at it from the rims lip to the center cap area, they are pretty much equal. If you look at the spokes, the V710's will appear more concave since the spokes start from the edge of the lip. The V10's spokes do come up, then concaves down towards the center dramatically.

BUT, if you want the concave of the concave! go for our 19x10 VB3's.

Kind of a thread jack but I got new wheel caps for my CSL reps from Tischer and they don't go all in all the flush (not flush). I'm pretty sure they are the correct part number. Any help would be appreciated. The fronts fit pretty well but the rears don't fit as well. I'm pretty sure you just snap them in. I don't think there isn't a procedure or trick to putting them on.

Time Attack rings can be purchased through our dealer EAS. They have specific rings for our VMR VB3's.

Did you purchase VMR VB3 csl style wheels? If so, we designed our wheels to specifically mate with OE BMW caps. I currently dont have the part # on hand, but I can get it first thing on Monday. Our caps sit flush with out VB3 wheels.

Car looks great. It looks like it would definitely be a nice cruiser on the weekends along the coast.

I've been looking either for VB3's or V710's on a steel gray sedan? Anyone have pics? 18's preferred but whatever size you got, might convince me

While that is true theoretically, for cost reasons, many manufacturers use the same face with multiple offsets of the same width and just extend the hub area for lower offsets.
