Sounds like you're going for looks, so I think tire width is fine for VMR's. They're pretty popular too. 9.5 inch with 265 tires on the rear is pretty wide (stock specs), and more than good enough for daily driven and show applications.
The VMR's I like in design better. I like the Forgestars because they seem like a good track wheel, given their cost, weight, and the custom offsets and sizes that you can order them in.
I say that because I've seen plenty of VMR's in person on the new M3, and I think they look good. The only Forgestar F14's I've seen in real life so far were on a Porsche Cayman and an Audi TT.
