..::|TrippinBimmer & VMR Wheels: V705's 18x9.5" ET33 Non-Staggered Setup|::..

Some of you guys been following my Build Thread and I have been on a search for a new set of wheels to replace my Heavy Iconz Wheels (Forge and Concave).

On this new setup, I wanted square setup, 17's or 18's, Lighter then my old wheels, Aggressive Style/Look, and overall great quality wheel. I have been looking for a month and was deciding between APEX ARC-8, APEX EC-7, VMR V710's or VMR V705's wheels. I always missed my V710's setup. I was the first to run them on the sedan when they were released. So I gave Kevin a rang and we was able to get something going for my car.

Wheel: VMR V705
Size: 18x9.5
Offset: ET33
Tire Size: 255/35R18
Suspension: TCKline D/A Coilovers

Below you will see how I received the rims and test fitment pictures.



Individual Boxes of the Wheels



Opening them up



Plastic Bag, MicroFiber Wheel Cover and Plastic Rim Protector



When I bought my Iconz Wheels. They didn't do this (4K+ Wheels)



How prudy she is



Test fitting with current setting



As you can see its not going to work. So I raised it some but when I swap springs they will fit fine.



Crank them up and push the wheel against the hub.



Snugged the Lug Nuts on







Hella Poke? I don't think so



Where the adj collar set atm is pass factory ride height.



Requested Pictures.





To get these wheels fit correctly and mildly slammed will need some modding to the suspension that I am prepared for My car is still out of order as I am doing tons of stuff to it atm but should be rolling again in a month or so with the proper shoot.

like that you went with ones that were actually concave. The 8.5s look like a cheap TR rim for winter use.
