Help! VMR 710's on E46 M3

Hi everyone

Didn't want to make a new thread but I've found so many different answers that I thought, what the heck.

I've decided on the VMR 710's for my car. The sizes I would like are:

front: 19x8.5
rear: 19x10

what offsets do I need for a staggered fitment? Once I found out this I'll post pics when I get them on ! I cant wait!!

also this may sound dumb, but what do these numbers MEAN regarding offsets? as in, whats the difference between a 25 and 38??

The set up I've seen recommended for my car is
19x8.5 ET 35
19x10 ET 38

not sure if this is right

I would recommend a 19x10 ET25 for your car. The ET38 will be more sunken and most likely have clearance issues with the inner fender. That is also what we recommend for an E9* non-M3.

If you have any other questions feel free to send me a PM or call me at 714-442-7916 ext 108.

+1 Just like JB said, the Et25 offset is catered towards the M3 a bit better than the ET38 which is really meant for the E9x 3 series cars and other applications.

On the E46 M3, you should go with the 19x8.5" ET35 and 19x10" ET25 for the proper bolt on staggered fitment. The difference between the ET25 and ET38 is that the ET38 is 13mm more sunken in.

Here are a couple pictures of Silver V710s on a Black E46 M3:
