Imola red on VMR 710's

Hey guys. I recently bought a set of the VMR 710 in gunmetal from my bargains. Dealt with Elliott, very knowledgeable and pleasurable experience. I wanted to share these pics with you so if anybody is considering this color combo they can get an idea of what it looks like. I really like the contrast of the two colors. The are 19x8.5 et 35 in the front and 19x9.5 et 22 in rear. I'm not so sure I like the way the front Rams bowls out of the wheel wells a little bit. I really like the stock look and I'm seriously considering getting the
et 45's for the front. What do you guys thing? Click image for larger version

That looks really nice!

Re the fitment, I just purchased a set of CSL replicas and they are 10" wide rears. Im not sure off the offset, however this company makes them specifically for the E46 M3, so fitment won't be of any problem.

Do you rears sit flush with the guards or a little inside?

The rears sit perfectly flush. I'm in love with the rears. It's just the front that sticks out a bit. I guess that's the look that must go for.

Thanks yes I am. I was told that the right size for those rims are 245 in front and 275 in rear.

Thank you, but I have to admit I'm not sure. I bought the car like that. Tinting windows is never something I would do it myself prior to purchasing this car but I don't think I could do without it now!

Wheels look good, especially with the tint. M3's always look funny to me in the snow. I just don't expect to see them in that environment.

Cheers,
