This is about as close as I could come, and it's for the V713.

How about Vb3s on Silver Grey?.. I'm really interested in the bronze metallic. I want something to stand out but not too much. Something different and I'm thinking the bronze might do it. The competition gold might be too much but I would still like to see it. If not the bronze i'm probably going to lean towards super silver. any suggestions??

I couldn't find any photos that specific in our database, but that combo is very popular. Bronze is a pretty classic finish as well. A safe bet though is super silver, so if you're ever nervous that you'll dislike the finish of the wheels over time, that may be a better route to go. Again though, it's all up to you!

Hit a pretty bad pot hole today. Ruined two tires. (bubbles in the sidewall)

My 18" vmr vb3 csl rims seem fine though

This is why I don't reccomend 19" rims (and performance)

The V709 is available in 5x112 only, so if you were to put them on an E46 they'd have to be redrilled or run adapters. That's probably why there aren't too many photos floating around the internet.

Nice!

Glad that they held up well.

I couldn't find any on an E46 but I did find our gunmetal finish on an E92.



I hope that helps a little. It should look pretty nice!

That looks really good! Did you have to do much fender modification aside from rolling the fenders to fit those 18x9.5 ET33s?

It would definitely be refreshing to see.

If you do decide to get them be sure to post photos of the results.

For starters the car looks great!! I have a carbon black m3 and just ordered a set of the textured black v710's a few days ago for her.

What size spacers are u running front and rear & what coilovers have u installed??

I have 18mm spacers on the front with 235x19x35 tyres with no rubbing at all, however i cant seem to sort the rear out to have no rubbing issues. I am also running bilstein pss10's pushed as low as possible! haha.

How about the xi folks running some 710s? I am about to lower the car with Eibach Pro's with some Koni shocks and am looking at ordering a set of the 19x8.5 w/ 235/35/19 tires. Just curious as to the gap with a 19" wheel/tire combo and a slight drop. Want it to look great but also not slammed. Anyone??

One of my customer's sent me some photos of his E46 M3 with our wheels on it and I think it looks pretty awesome. Figured I'd share some pictures of it.

Got my v710s mounted over the weekend. 19x8.5 ET35 and 19x9.5 ET45. Sitting on stock sport suspension, no rubbing at all. Will probably have to roll fenders after a drop.
