>>>EAS/V710 Matt Black Review<<< **Pics!!**

Back in Nov I took advantage of the Free shipping EAS had on the "New" V710 wheels for the M3. COncidering the P40's cost $4500 (my price) to the $999 of the V710 with the only savings of a 1 or 1.5 per wheel it was a no brainer..
I wanted a great looking street wheel I could cruise around and look good with out losing too much performance.
EAS (Tom) took care of me from the get go and took my order on a Sunday, and aranged for my wheels and tires to arrive at the prescribed date I request, in addition to the wheels was the request of out of ordinary in stock tire sizes that I wanted. All was good!!
Wheels came in and I was so excited I threw them on and went for a test drive, when I returned I was soo disappointed to see the rear tires where 285/30/19 INSTEAD of the 285/35/19 I wanted... I was so bumbed but it was my fault for not checking and jumping the gun before driving on them. Oh well I am stuck with them becuase I put miles on them.... I PM Tom and told him the deal, and to my surprise he said "I will send you the right set ASAP" even after knowing I had used the tires already.. WOW! Talk about making it right!!
My Father owns a "Big O Tires" in reialto CA, and replacing tires that are used just doesn't happen. EAS has my business as long as I own the car.. Thanks again Tom for the "standard" in customer service..

Stock 18" with PS2
Front 47lbs
Rear 51lbs

19" V710 with 255/35 and 285/30
Front 51lbs
Rear 56lbs

These are the weighted on a home scale I have..

Performance

Handaling performance is up a bit due to the wider tires and the +.5 neg camber I had the dealership dial in in addition to the stock camber specs.

straight line performance has suffered just a bit due to the additional rotational mass, but it was expected. The car handles better than stock now with the camber adjustment, overall it was worth the money spent for the entire package.... Now I can put some Mickey Thompson Drag radials on my 18"


Pics!!

Yeah I know the pics suck! No I did not step on any graves to take the pics..

Looks great...do you have some kind of decals on your back brakes? I don't think you have a BBK but it looks like a white decal on the caliper?

Definitely an interesting photoshoot location. I think the countryside would have been much better lol. Wheels look good though I am not a huge fan of all black wheels. Be sure to post your experience with the wheels in the months to come as I have heard the VMR wheels have a problem with the clearcoat peeling off. If no problems then definitely a great buy.

I have had 2 sets of their CSL wheels for my E46 and never had a paint issue with them. Although I did have some clear coat peel off after I rubbed the curb with them.

VMR wheels are on par with OEM as far as quality. I hit a brick at 80mph with their 18" CSL wheel and there was only a minor bend. My only minor complaint is that you'll see a few VERY minor defects in the paint only upon close inspection.

Actually, there is a slight clearcoat to seal against brake dust. The wheels are painted, clearcoated and oven-baked for durability.
