Photo-shoot with Summer Wheels & Tires

After washing my ///M3 today it was time to take some photos showing up the new acquired VIP Modular VRS-13 Wheels 20" x 9.5" up front, 20" x 11" at the rear - Stepped Lip, 3 pc. forged center, patented spun barrel, made 100% in the USA Machined/clear center with polished accents, painted barrel summer wheels. These wheels have simply amazing workmanship, they are like art, with a very aggressive dish and center appearance on the car. Something I appreciate as a retired mechanical engineer.

The Tires are Yokohama Advan Sport, Front 255/30/20, Rear 305/25/20. Slightly more noisier then my stock Michelin tires I find, all depending on the road surface. The sidewall is slightly less on the Yokohama tires as a result the overall diameter is exactly the same when I compare my 19" Stock to the 20" Summer set up.

Some say I should lower the front, I have no plans to do so since in the off Summer months I will be running my original stock wheels as mentioned before they are the same diameter. Since I do not track my car and I will be using the stock 19" wheels in fall/winter and spring season there are no plans to lower the front.



Shot number 1 showing the Summer Set Up



Shot number 2 showing the Summer Set Up



Shot number 3 showing the Summer Set Up



Shot number 4 showing the Summer Set Up



Shot number 5 showing the Summer Set Up close up front



Shot number 6 showing the Summer Set Up, close up at rear



Photo number 7 Shows the 19" set up with 220m stock wheels I will be running fall / winter and early spring.
(I run the car around the block in winter when roads are dry you guessed it I cannot leave her sitting for that long)

Car looks great, what percentage of tint is that? How is the ride quality with 20's vs. 19's?

Looks good. Nice set of wheels. Any plans on lowering?

Are you going to change out the reflectors and the grill?

great looking wheels. Any reason why you didn't opt for the AD08? Yokohama makes some amazing tires.

Car looks clean and love the step lip. Tint looks ridiculously dark haha

Thank you. The tires came with the rims I purchased them second hand from John (a member here). The tint is actually very light, must be the light that makes it look darker. Then again my iPhone does not take the best photos

Thanks man ... nah not summer yet, just put them on a bit early since I just purchased them

Stopped at the University to see a friend after my photo shoot ... naturally it started to rain ... what else is new after one washes his ride Just had to take a few more pictures from the passenger side of the car. Anyhow pictures with the wet look also seam fine.

Someone took pictures of my summer wheels today at the gas station then jumped into his truck and left before I had a chance to say anything to him.

Hope he has no plans to swipe my wheels ... good luck to him he first has to pass three lines of defence ... (my garage alarm ... my car alarm and last but not least the sharp teeth of our security guard our well trained German Shepard).

Wow! Looks "very sexy" Rolf!

Of course I've always been partial to these rims!

Time to enjoy the summer and the wheels.
