Default Anyone try VMR wheels???

Have a 2011 M3 vert on the way with 19's and I just hate the wheels. Has anyone tried VMR's. They look great. Check out BMW pulse for a pic.

There's a lot of info on the forum on VMR wheels. A lot of different opinions too. If you can afford it, go with a BBS or HRE. I'm on my 2nd set of VMR wheels and really like them for the price and quality. Never had any issues with them. You really can't beat the styles available and the finish options. GL in your search.

There are TONS of people off this forum who run VMR wheels, a search will easily see that. VMR has a great reputation for a good strong wheel for a good price. For your vert, I like the V710s:





I hope that helps! PM me for pricing.

VMR makes great Replica wheels. Like the CSL and as mentioned the V710's. I think they would both look pretty good on your car.

Not sure if you've seen some other options for your car but you might like the look of some of these wheels that are ready to ship!

The Flow-Formed, lightweight, and custom Forgestar F10







The Forgestar F14







The Low Pressure Cast - Avant Garde



I'll send you a PM on the differences between the build quality of the Forgestar's, Avant Garde, and the VMR wheels!

Default It's Worth Learning What You Can About Wheels Before Spending Your Money

VMR's have a generally good rep. There are lots of aftermarket wheel choices, and it would be in your interest to learn as much as you can. To that end, a couple of links follow that contain discussions about how wheels are made and the various wheel performance and quality standards.

How Wheels are Made: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=357430

Performance Stds: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=353224

You may not like the appearance of the BMW OEM wheels, but they are very high quality and very durable. You can easily spend a lot of money and not get better performing wheels.

Default thanks

I agree there are so many choices. I've had the prev generation M3 vert and those wheels look almost exactly like the E93 wheels and I just am tired of them. I love the 710's they remind me of the Audi RS 4 wheels which are great looking to me. the white vert wheels look great. Last STUPID question, when a vendor says wheel set, can one assume that's for all four wheels minus the tires? That's what I believe it means. Right or Wrong????

Default Yes, A Set is 4

Remember, you'll need TPMS sensors also if you don't plan to use your current tires (& TPMS) that came with your car. The TPMS sensors changed for 2010 model year on. You have to be sure to get the correct ones.

The V710's are a nice looking wheel. Lots of people make very similar looking wheels. Alufelgen has a low pressure cast version (VIA and JWL certified) that a lot of people have. A very good alternative would be the 8 spoke BMW OEM competition package wheel. They are about $2K for a set from Tischer. http://www.trademotion.com/partlocat...catalogid=4462

I'm glad you like the VMR V710s on that e93! As for your question, which isn't stupid, because it can be seen differently, like when I quote Advans, or BBS wheels, most people quote per wheel, which can be devious at times, but for VMR wheels, you're looking at a price for a full set.

I'll send you over a PM real quick
