VMR VB3 19x9.5 front and 19x10 rear

Guys,

I just wanted to share my new wheels I got from VMR!
They are VB3's 19x9.5 et 33 235/35/19 front and 19x10 et 38 265/30/19 rear.
Got 'em thru Charles from VMR (still waiting for VMR center caps from him since they are currenlty out of stock ).

I'm on stock sport suspension for now.
I test drove it last night and so far no issues/rubbing.
I already have H&R sport springs but I'm not afraid to put them on as they might present issues with hitting struts or rub with inner/outer wheel well.

Need help regarding dropping it with the H&R's!!

Thanks for looking and will post more (better) pics later!

As long as I can confirm that I'll be ok with it, I'll put them on.
So far, with what I've heard from this forum has been a mix of either they're 'OK' or I would have to do some more modifications to avoid any issues which as of right now, I'm not really up to...

Looks great, keep the BMW caps on!

Did you really get a 19x9.5 or is it 8.5? What size tires are you running?

He was going for that aggressive concave look up front.

I think it looks good at the height it's at now. Do you really want to go lower and lose some of your suspension travel?

You know what - after staring at it for a day I'm thinking about keeping it on stock sport suspension and just put spacers on the rear wheels and a front lip.
So, with that being said I might sell the H&R sport springs that I have

Nice! The M3 front is looking good... After the lowered height, I think it will look great. Any plans on gloss black performance grills and gloss trim?
