I think as better way to describe the difference is the excess material around the edge of the rim. So the V718 looks more chiseled and aggressive. The VB3s looks softer and more subtle.

I really like these V718s. Maybe if I hit a couple of potholes in my VB3s, I'll pick up a set of these.

Would you need fenders rolled for the 19's on an e46?... any timeline for the 18" V718?

No fender rolling required for our setups at stock height with the proper tire sizes. We generally recommend 8.5" +35 front with a 235 tire and a 9.5 +45 rear with a 245/255 for Sedan and 265 for a Coupe.

Unfortunately at this time, I do not have a ETA on 18" sizes.

Can you put 225, 40 18's on a 18 x 8.5 rim? Will the rim protrude out vs. the tire? What does this look like

225 is perfectly fine on a 8.5" wheel. Depending on what tire manufacturer you are running 225's may run slightly stretched on a 8.5" wheel.
