Alright guys as you already know I sold my car few months ago and need to sell rest of the stuff for the car. These are personal set, Morr vs8.2 in 20 inch configuration with 20x9.0 et22 (21lbs) and 20x10.5 et25 (24lbs) in hand brushed with clearcoat for extra protection. The wheels are brand new in box never used. I believe the best GB prices for them were 3800$ plus 400$ for burshed finishe = 4200$.
I am selling them for 3500$ plus shipping. My loss is your gain.
Here is a thread for another member who has these wheels along with Morr’s fact sheet with their pix. I do not have actual pix of the wheels on the car as they were never mounted on them. Please shoot me a PM if you are interested. I am located in Northern VA (near Washington DC). Most places in CONUS lower 48 states shipping is about 200-250$. They are all still in box and ready to go.
I am taking offers but no low balls offers accepted..
Lighter. The new 19" MonoForged™ VS8.2 is lighter, wider, and stronger than any of its predecessors. The new VS8.2 weighs approximately 8.87-kg (19.52-lbs) making it about 1.03-kg (2.26-lbs) lighter than the MonoForged™ VS8. This weight reduction was achieved by implementing several advanced manufacturing processes including flow-forming. Flow-forming helps reduce barrel thickness by up to ten-percent. We also achieved such significant weight reduction by using Vehicle Specific Profiles (VSP) and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) by using Vehicle Specific Load Ratings (VSLR) and Vehicle Specific Weight Optimization (VSWO).
By using VSLR and VSWO, weight can be reduced by eliminating the need of using excessive load ratings due to the wheel blanks being shared with higher rated platforms. MORR manufactures wheel blanks exclusively for every design it produces, allowing us to engineer the blanks according to the specific load ratings of the vehicle brand & model we are making the wheel for. This in turn increases our production costs, but allows us to make a far superior wheel.
Through VSP, we can minimize excessive back spacing in our wheel blanks. Adding material to the back pad is required when sharing blanks among different platforms, increasing the weight and required excessive machining of the back pad which could compromise the integrity of the final product. Our MonoForged™ blanks are vehicle specific, thus requiring minimum machining of the back pad, resulting in a lighter wheel without compromising its integrity.
Wider. At 10-inches wide, our new VS8.2 rears are .5-inch wider than its predecessors, widening the vehicle’s rear track, allowing for wider tires, increasing the concavity profile and improving the overall vehicle handling dynamics.
Stronger. At MORR, during the design stage, our engineers run FEA simulations to ensure the weight optimization process does not sacrifice wheel strength. To ensure our wheels are ultra-lightweight and equally as strong, our MonoForged™ product line is manufactured using only the highest grade 6061-T6 Aluminum. All of our wheels conform to the strict international standards of wheel quality and manufacturing, which include VIA/JWL and TuV-Rheinland. Our MonoForged™ VS8.2 is rated at the new safety standard of 690-kg (1521-lbs) per corner. Our VS8.2 are also subject to extensive Rotary Bending Fatigue, 13-degree Impact @ 0-degrres, 13-degree impact @ spoke, Radial Load Endurance and Radial Load Fatigue physical testing.
Re-Designed. - The new VS8.2 is a step above from our VS8 design. A lot of attention was given to details. The spokes have been extended further out and the outer lip has been reduced, creating a larger appearance. Also, the spokes shape has been given more dimension through curvature . The outer lip has been smoothened as well for a cleaner look.
Ultra-Concave. - Being one of the pioneers of the concavity trend, the new MonoForged™ VS8.2 is the most concave 10" wheel currently available for the BMW 3-Series with a profile depth of over 30-degrees.
Inner Lip. - One of the greatest challenges with the VS8 inner lip was its depth. At over 3" the availability of milling machines to be able to go that deep was limited. With the new MonoForged™ VS8.2 that lip was further increased to 3.2" enhancing the overall look of this design.
Optimization. - Through Vehicle Specific Profiles (VSP), Vehicle Specific Load Ratings (VSLR) and Vehicle Specific Weight Optimization (VSWO) we can create wheel blanks that are specific to the vehicle applications. This reduces excess back pad material, reducing weight and improving strength. The minimal backpad spacing, as shown below, eliminates the need for excessive machining. This ensures structural integrity is not sacrificed.
Ultra-Lightweight. - The new MonoForged™VS8.2 is one of the lightest 7-spokes wheels available. Weighing in at only 19-lbs for the front!
FEA. - Finite Element Analysis helped optimized the wheel strength and remove unnecessary material for the lightest possible wheel. Even at 19-lbs, the new VS8.2 wheel was tested at a load of 660kg and passed every FEA with flying colors.
