VMR V705

Since VMR released their V705...i know there was a lot of negative talk about how its not super concave and stuff like that. However, i was wondering if anyone bought a set of these and if so can you please post a picture. Im a fan of 5 spoke wheels and i kinda wanna see how they look like on a e9x. Ive seen the ones that vmr posted, but i want to see more pics on various cars.

I'm expecting mine this week so should have some pics next week.
Matte Black V705 on a Crimson Red E92.
Running a square setup (19x8.5 with 245 tires) so limited concavity. Still looking forward to it.

nice wheels but for me they look like something tire rack would pair with snow tires.

Agreed. I think they'd be much less 'budget' looking if the spokes didn't taper towards the barrel.

et35
I'm using 15mm spacers on the rear at the moment to push them out a bit (staggered look, square for even breakaway). Current square offset is et39.
Supposed to arrive later this week...then finding time to install...sigh...

you guys should realize that these wheels are practically copies of the ADV.1 flowspec 5 wheels... they look great with an aggressive fitment

V705 have arrived! 25.4 lbs for 19x8.5

Ready for installation tomorrow.

For anyone interested in how much the VMR V705 weigh - mine are 19x8.5 (square), et 35 and came in at 25.4 lbs.
Bit heavier than I had hoped but...

I'll post pics once installed. I need to get the lower mesh and window trim blacked out, the Aero lip installed and a tint to balance everything out but will post pics as I go.

you do realize that most of ADV.1's wheels are "practically copies" of other wheels right?

V705's on Crimson Red e92

For better or worse - here they are freshly installed. Sorry for the poor pics.
Note these are 19x8.5 square so the rear concave is limited vs staggered.

Car looks great with the new VMR V705 Matte Black wheels. It definitely gives the car a more sporty and aggressive look!

I like the idea/concept of a spoke wheel (concave vs having the lip) makes the wheel look bigger
