Thanks, i love the 10's . They are an amazing rim. I know its a rep design for the most part, but damn the quality is superb (coming from a mechanical engineering here) Yeah here are some current good shots where you can see the wheels shine. They look very dark if the lighting isn't right. When the weather gets better here, i'm going to get a better shoot in.

Talking FINALLY GOT MY VMR v710's!

Well, thanks to all you Fanatics I was able to finally make a decision on some new shoes for my '02 330i which arrived safe and sound yesterday. (VMR710 in HyperSilver)

Setup is: 235/35/19 ET35 and 255/30/19 ET45 H&R SportCup Kit

I know y'all will be bustin' my chops about the chrome window trim but I'm thinkin' of keeping it just so it looks different from all the other black sedans out there...

Thanks also to Charles at VMR and Brandon over at EAS! Keep up the good work!

Next up are cross-drilled/slotted all around. Thanks to Ron over at ModBargains for hooking up my order! Will post pics once the brakes are on!

For a M3 at stock height, 285's can work.

This car use spacers?

I have an E46 sedan, right now I have the wheels Style 68 (7.5 x 17 Et 41 and 8.5 x 17 et 50) with sport suspension.
My question is: The VMR VB3 wheels in (8.5 x 18) et 40 for front and rear, the ET of the front wheel in compared with oem wheel is too low because the VMR wheel is 8,5"?
And rear wheel is the same thing, the rear wheel does not get much into the inside the car?

Regards

First car looks to be using a staggered setup with 235/255 combo.

AW E46 was running only 3mm spacers up front to clear the coilover body. No rubbing issues what so ever. As far as the rear, there was a large amount of room when running a 8.5 +40 with 235 tire.

I believe Wezza's one above (black sedan with hyper black wheels) is 18s on a MSport suspension (no drop) and staggered setup.
