Thanks for the advice I appreciate. So what size of rubber can I put on these rims ? Would love to have at least 285's in the rear or better yet 295 are perfect for me. What about the fronts ?

I would do like a 295/30 on the rear, and a 255/35 or 265/30 on the front.

I would be curious to see this set up (255/295) depending on which tire choice you go with and whether you drop or not.

I have the 255/295 setup (PZeros) with HRE P40s and HR Sport Springs. Occasionally I can hear the rear tires rub.

Rubbing pretty much only has to do with your wheels offsets. What are they?

I don't know if you are specifically looking for 3pc wheels or not, but 3pc is going to run around $3500/set or more, in general. We have a great GB coming up soon, if you don't mind waiting (should be this week).

And if you like the look of a 1pc wheel, we have the Advan RS, RS-D at close to what you are looking for, although they are not Mesh designs.
VMR is also a great wheel for the price and i highly suggest the 9.5 / 10.0 options as well. Really nice set up with 265/30-19 and 295/30-19 tires.

Vossen is a good choice, but will not be in the price range he is looking for.

How is the finish on the brushed silver VB3's and V710's? Are they a painted wheel? Powder coated? I am considering these wheel because of their price point as well. I don't track the car and plan the change purely for esthetics. Plan to keep the suspension stock as well. What's the consensus long term?

Going the VB3; 19 X 9.5 ET 22 265/30
19 X 10 ET 25 295/30
Will this set up have an aggressive wide stance look?

Thanks.

This setup would look great, and aggressive. You could put a spacer in the rear to make it a little more flush, but that would be it. Maybe a 5mm spacer.

Thanks Andy.

What about the quality of these wheels. How is the finish on the hyper silver?
Are they a painted wheel, powder coated or something else in that finish?

I believe the quality is very high. Many people have these, and I have never read one complaint. I was going to get a set of these myself, and just bought something else instead.

I am not sure how they finish the wheels, but I would hope it at least has a powdercoated clear coat. Most wheel refinishers will powdercoat a primer, paint a color, and then powdercoat clear over that.
