work vs-tx??

Anyone had the work vs-tx before? They look like the LM-R, but I don't see them on their website, is it discontinue? I'm looking for a set of those for the m3. If anyone know a vendor where i can get them, please PM me.

Better start looking for another wheel dude. The Work VS-TX wheel is no longer made.

It was a good quality wheel at a resonable cost when it was available.

There is a set for sale on here in the for sale section but the have the E46 offsets
Maybe you could run a spacer if you really want that wheel. I love the look of it pretty much an LM-R

They look good, but E46 M3 offsets are not going to work out very well for the E90, E92, or E93 M3's. And YES, I suppose you could use spacers to improve the offsets if you really want these wheels bad enough.

FYI: Be advised that finding a replacement VS-TX wheel in the future, maybe nearly impossible if you need one down the road. (since they are now discontinued)

man i love them but you are right, it's hard to find one for the m3 offset, even though using a spacer may do the trick but it just doesn't shoot out right.

Yep, there is a risk in buying a discontinued (or very limited production) wheel.

There may or may not be another replacement wheel if something were to happen. (severe curbing, pothole damage)

No aftermarket wheel is indestructible.

Each individual has to weigh the potential risks before pulling the trigger.
