VMR VB3 Pic Request

I think i've decided on getting VB3's. But first I wanted to see what the 19" look like on a slammed E46.

Will I not be able to go so low since they are 19's? I'm not trying to poke at all. I would like to tuck if possible.

Would, (19x8.5 et 40 for the front and 19x9.5 et 33 or 45 for the rear) work?

Once again I'm just looking to tuck, not poke.

So will those wheels fit? And does anyone have any pictures of 19" VB3's on a lowered E46?

Only pictures I have seen are VB3's on newer bmw's and not lowered E46's.

Thanks

you'll be able to go lower with the 18's and get the et45 for rear wheels especially on a sedan. you still might have to roll your fenders to depending on tire sizes. look through VMR gallery they have pages on pages of pics

Oh lawd! ^ "drool" thanks VMR and Bimmerdood I forgot about that thread, i'll check it out. Not many people are slammed on 19's though. That's why i'm hoping someone can post up some pics

I'm sure you are right about being able to go lower with 18's, but if I can get low enough with 19's then that would be awesome.

And i'm leaning towards V710's now haha Any pics of those VMR? on a lowered e46

That's gorgeous, they are 19's? Do you have any side profile shots with the wheels straight? I'm hoping to tuck the rim. Will that not happen?

Yes these are 19." I wasn't able to find another pic. We recommend 19x8.5 ET35 fitment with 235/35/19 tire. We can guarantee no rubbing issues on stock suspension and no need for fender modification. Now, we have some customers with his fitment who have lowered their cars and had no issues. However, it would depend on how much you are looking to drop.

Lol @ this thread. The old Dom G is coming out. You started a thread asking for pictures of the MOST common wheels on these cars... You must have forgotten about the search bar. And your car will ride like crap tucking 19's on shitty coils. Just saying.

Search for Carbon///M3 (old car), breakmywallet, & BartenderPlease. They all ran 19" vb3's well with good drops. There's plenty more but I can't remember their usernames.

ET45 if you want to tuck without running excessive camber.

Thanks but I'm interested in vmr v710's, and I looked through the vmr thread and there aren't many sedans that are dropped on them. I found two black sedans however so that sold me on getting them, this thread can die now
