VMR VB3 On 08 328i Sedan?

Hey Guys, so I've been browsing for some wheels for a bit now and I was referred to these VMR VB3 and I was quite pleased with them.

http://www.velocitymotoring.com/wheels_vb3.html

So I know that they offer them in 19s and 18s and my question is which can I go with without having any rubbing issues when the wheels turn all the way.
Also what would you guys recommend as a finish for the wheel , my car is silver with dark tint. Or would you guys recommend other wheel sets?

Thanks.

They have conservative offsets available which will not rub in any fashion on a stock suspension 3 series. If you are slammed on some coilovers, you might have some problems if you run an aggressive offset or a tire thats too big. Most people go with the 8.5" fronts and 9.5" or 10" in the back with 235/35/19 tires up front and 265/30/19 in the back. Any wider up front can cause rubbing and the same for the rear.

Ohh okay cool, cause I had heard about rolling fenders and such and didnt wanna go that way.
No mods of that sort have been made.
Yea for sure I was looking into looking into getting that type of setup.

You can run either the 18x8.5 ET40 and 18x9.5 ET33 or 19x8.5 ET40 and 19x9.5 ET33. These are designed for the E9X non-M3 so they sit flush without rubbing with the recommended tire sizing (235/40/18 and 265/35/18 or 235/35/19 and 265/30/19).

Let us know if you need help with pricing on either size.

Sounds good! Hope to see you soon.

Tires will depend on budget, driving conditions, and what you'll be doing with the vehicle. We can also chat about that when you come by.
