VMR 701 gunmetal 18" or 19"? Need help!!

Hello,

I will be upgrading to the VMR 701's tomorrow (if i can decide on 18" or 19"). I dont want to get 18's and look small and 19's and get rubbed all the time. I will be adding ST coiolvers soon after the wheel upgrade. What size should i go please. If any one have pictures please post.

My car,




Thanks.

Look at my thread, look for the silver E90
I'm running on ST's wheels vmr 701
19x8.5 et 35, michelin pss 235/35/19
19x9.5 et 33, michelin pss 265/30/19
To compare ride height when you install place your iphone behind the front wheel well and stand it up below the sideskirt, I am iPhone + 1 finger height. For rear place phone in front of rear well below sideskirt, I am iphone + 2 finger height.
No wheel gap, no rubbing, stock alignment. I could go lower but don't want too. Fenders are rolled as a precaution.

Your ride is perfect. Thanks for the very helpful information. Are you running any spacers?

It looks like 19's. No spacers. My PSS sidewall tires are too square and I added 10mm front and 15mm rear, barely a mile I started rubbing. Either I put more negative camber plus narrow sidewalls like Falken 453 or Hankook V12.

18s, but not sure if this car is lowered at all.

Also, tire sizing is a bit larger than we recommend.
