Default Pic Request VMR 710's in Matte Black on Alpine White?

Hey Guys

I am toying with the idea of getting new rims with my tax refund.

I love the VMR VB3 and the 710's but am not sure what colour to go with....Currently I have a set of CSL reps in hyper black and don't wanna stray to far away from that look so these are my alternatives.

My current rims have a bit of rash on them and since the roads here in Northern Ontario suck they have some bends I'm sure.

If anyone has a pic of the 710's on a AW please post them, also any feedback on how the Matte black holds up to wear and tear compared to ones with clear coat?

Thanks guys
Dave

I just put on a set of VMR 710s in matte black on my Carbon Black M3 - needless to say they look freaking INSANE. They will look just as good on AW - go for it, you will NOT regret it.

It looks good. My old wheels on KrisHorton's AW. Mine held up beautfully. Still got them sitting in my Volk boxes in the garage

It looks great on CB. Ran that setup for about a year and loved it!

You WILL LOVE them, they will look awesome on white.

For some reason my matte black wheels are more matte than all the others I have seen. Its almost like the others are a semi gloss.

Here are mine:

Not a problem. Nice choice of tires . They will look 20 times better in person than they do in pics too.

FYI... this post didn't make your bank account empty. This FORUM makes your bank account empty. Ask me how I know....
