Why did you guys choose wheels with horrible offsets for the E92 M3? Those will be more sucked in than stock.

I assure that the stance on the M will not be tucked in. The correct offset #'s are listed below and on the original post.

VMR VB3 WHEEL OFFSET on VF Project E92 M3:
19x9.5 et22 front
19x10 et25 rear

FYI: For the E92 M3, the front wheel offset is very aggressive (boarderline rubbing on the front fender), while the rear offset will be tucked in about 8mm from the rear fender.

Thanks for clearing that up. I did not think a company with such knowledge would do such a thing. The fronts are perfect offset, but I would suggest a 5mm spacer in the rear.

at a half inch wider than stock wouldn't that rear be pushed out about 4mm more than stock? Is stock a half inch off flush?

That front look to be 19 mm out. Do you have to change alignment/camber?

Offsets reversed?

Those offsets are not reversed. Those are pretty good offsets. That is about as aggressive as you can go with the 9.5" without rubbing. I have a 9.5" ET22 with a 275/30/19, and it comes close, but does not rub. It is great.

Umm...

Looking at those rear wheels, I think you might have left something out there Hubert...

I think the front offset is a little bit tight. but it also has to come down to the design of the tires aswell

I am running
Front
offset: 15
19*8.5J

Rear
offset: 15
19*10J

no rubbing at all

For what it is worth, the offsets are quoted in reverse in the wheel and tires forum thread. That seems more likely to achieve the look in these photos.

Love the color, but I don't like the "highlight" on the hood bulge. It's like a girl with great tits putting makeup on them - unnecessary : )

I think that supercharger system look AWESOME! I love red powdercoated components. Will the final production version look that way?
