Thoughts on New VMR V710

VMR is releasing a new CSL-like wheel within the next couple of months. Available sizes are 19x8.5 and 19x9.5. It's cast rather than forged, but VMR claims a 19x8.5 wheel mounted on 245/35/19 General Exclaim UHP weighs 50 lbs., which isn't too bad.

More info is available here: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=138899

I like the concavity and the overall design myself. Do ya'll have any opinions on how these would look on an E90 M3?

look ok, its more associated with the e46 imo which just makes it seem out of place, but otherwise a clean look

u have to consider 3 things though: fitment, so far they dont have the right offset. the fact that everyone and their mom will be running them, and weight. i hear they're forged, so should be light, but **********s fails to deliver information on their weight so far

These looked awesome on the e92 - our e46 M3 looked awesome also at the show in VMRs booth.

The V710s are cast, not forged.

Weights are the same as the VB3s, offsets are being worked out at the moment - I just came back form a meeting with the VMR guys on this very subject. We're verifying again in house this week on a few different vehicles.

More info coming soon.
