E46 with new VMR V710's - SICK!

I finally got a set of wheels and tires for my 2000 323i. I am currently running VMR V710's 18.0 x 8.0 with Continental ExtremeContact DWS tires 235/35 ZR 18 all the way around. I think they look great. I'm very satisfied with VMR; everything from packaging to pricing was spot on. The wheels were flawless as well. If anyone is interested in getting a set of VMR wheels, head over to modbargains.com. The sales rep that I spoke with, Elliot, was extremely helpful. He even matched the pricing that I got from another distributor. The wheels came in about a week and I couldn't be more satisfied with my purchase. Any feedback is appreciated!

To comply with US DOT standards. They are all clear in Europe.

In some states its illegal to have smoked lights like here in Texas (still have them tho).

Oh and OP, awesome looking wheels. I'll be getting some just like them except with black on the sides of each spoke in a few weeks.

Looks good. Don't jump on the "drop that ish" bandwagon, a drop makes your car uncomfortable, impractical, and costs you money. If anything, swap for a sport suspension. Smoked corners/sides/RCR tails are a must though

@jzwu: my 18" V710 replicas with tires were about 5lbs heavier then my 16" style 45's.

My 18" 710's feel a lot heavier because I swapped it out from 16" 15lbs Kosei K1's, but shouldnt feel that different from the stock alloys

I actually think they do. I went from my 17's (20 spoke) to 18" beyern mesh and I could feel it a bit more sluggish. I went back down to the 17's and it's better, not to mention A LOT more comfortable.
