Question VMR Wheel size/offset HELP on a 335i

Hey, i am new to this forum. Just traded from a 350z to a 335i E92 2008. I want to get the VMR VB3(V703) and i got a good deal for a staggered set. front 19x8.5 offset 40 on the front and 19x9.5 offset 33 on the rear. Most the wheels i have been looking for have had offsets of 35 on the front but these only come with an offset of 40....so i want to know if i will be ok getting these. i dont want any rubbing or anything and i know ppl here in houston who can roll my fenders if needed. i am running stock btw.

You should have no issues whatsoever

We recommend either 19x8.5 ET40 OR ET35 in the front.

They'll fit. They won't be flush though. I would look for some more aggressive specs if you are willing to roll your fenders.

If you want a flush fitment go with
8.5et22 235/35/19
10 et25 265/30/19

You'll need to roll the rear fenders.

If you're looking for a more aggressive fitment, I've seen customers run 9.5s up front and 10s in the rear, however fender modification and/or stretched tires may be necessary. Not sure if you just want a nice, simple, bolt on fitment that doesn't require any work, or if you are open to doing that sort of work to make them fit.

What if I go with the ET 20 on the front? Or do the 40 and get a 5mm spacer?
And I messaged u about ordering some.

I have VB3 19x8.5 ET40 on the front and 19x9.5 ET33 and they look sick IMO. Couldn't be happier with how they look. I can take pics if you want so you can see how far they stick out although I don't know how different it'll be since you have a coupe.

I just picked up some VMR VB3/V703s and my sizes are:

19x8.5 ET 40 (Front)
19x10 ET 35 (Rear)

Rear sits flush. Front needs a 5mm spacer to sit flush.

*Note: Usually the 19x10 is a ET 38 but they only had ET 35 blanks so I took them, they're in my favor since I wont need a spacer for the rear anymore.

19x9.5 ET33 and 19x8.5 ET20 have the same outer position. The same applies, whether it's an 8.5 or 9.5; fender mods may be required. If you're really looking for a nice, simple bolt on fitment you could just run our standard offsets and space them out to your preferences.

Yes of course. I'll take pictures as soon as I get my car back from the dealer today. Surprisingly the dealer is arguing with me about my wheels for a different issue..haha.

Anyway, I'm running Falken Azenis FK-453 235/35R19 in front and 265/30R19 for the rear.

There are no fender mods required to fit either of those sizes. E92 front fenders can't be rolled. e90 front fenders can be rolled, but there isn't much to roll so most people don't even bother. Why use spacers when 9.5et33 is a flush fitment in the front?

I know the E92 fenders can't be rolled, but you may need to do some trimming here or there, which is why I didn't specifically say rolling. I've seen people do the 9.5 ET33 fitment before plenty of times, but to make sure we don't end up with unsatisfied customers, we always recommend going the safe route first and then move towards a more aggressive fit later if they want. Everyone's setup is a little different, and we'd just rather not have a customer damage their car if we can help it.

I understand that, but when you make it seem like it won't fit that makes people go with the safer fitment, and then they are looking for spacers not long after. I understand that some people just want the bolt on fitments, but some are also willing to put a little bit of work in to get the look they want.

Btw 9.5et33 doesn't require any fender trimming or rolling with a 245.

Those that are familiarized with wheel fitments usually just tell us what they want and they know what it takes haha. We have a lot of customers that just like a nice, simple fitment that's not going to have a chance at rubbing at all. Personally, I would be one of the people that goes the more aggressive route, but I can understand not wanting to rub or roll fenders on a Bimmer. I like dealing with customers that know what they're doing with the more aggressive fits though because their cars always come out looking sweet.

I'm see your point and I understand you can't really give advice on aggressive fitments as a vendor.

I am just saying fender rolling isn't a big deal to some people, but when you make it seem like it takes major modifications to fit it scares them into going with the bolt on offsets.
