Going to order some VMR wheels tonight...

I am about to order some VMR V710's in 19" matte black for my e92. Is there anything I should know before ordering? For example, what offset did you guys (VMR owners) go with? Which vendor do you suggest?

I have them on my 328 and I love them for the money. LINK Yea the stainless lips ding a little and the paint has chipped in a few spots. But for 250 a rim, they are great.

I am debating getting the 713s in matte black for my next car. AW e90 m3. But I am a little worried about the black chipping a little. But I think Im going to do it anyway. That means more money for other mods!

Talk to the guys at EAS and they'll hook you up. Only thing I would recommend is looking at the VB3's instead of the v710's. Same design but a wider wheel. Check my sig for stats. They fit perfect.

I would suggest getting the following sizes for an M3:
19"x8.5" +20mm
19"x9.5" +22mm

These will be slightly more aggressive than stock, filling up your wheel wells nicely and they won't cause any rubbing. Let me know if you have any more questions about these.

Thanks Ricfutres! The VB3's are a similar design, however they have a different spoke count,; and yes they are offered in a wider 10" version. I think they look excellent on your car! It's the same set-up that we have on our M3 here. Here's a pic of Ricfutres' set-up:

i think the VB3s are the closest design to the original CSL wheels
the others are adaptations of the CSLs
