VMR V703 or ForgeStar F14 SDC???

I need some help from some of you offset guru's.

I am trying to decide between these two wheels. I really love the ForgeStar F14 wheel for that SDC sex but not sure it is worth the extra dough if I can get a similar concavity with the VMR.

That being said, if I was to decide on the VMR V703 what offset would you suggest for the most aggressive I could go without any more then a fender roll? I don't really want to have to run too much camber if I can avoid it, mostly due to the fact that where I live there isn't any shops I would trust to dial me in.

My Car:
2009 E92 Alpine M-Sport
Dropped on H&R Sports (Planning on replacing with ST Coils once I can save up for them)

For the ForgeStar's I was planning on the following:
19x9 ET35 front
19x10 ET28 rear

Thanks for any help,

Brandon

Go forgestars They look incredible in person. A little more expensive but you get a flow form wheel and the concavity looks killer. Those fitments will be fine

9 +35 might not clear the front strut. I'd say go with a +32.

9 +35 gives you 5mm at the strut

That is what I thought. This was the suggested setup from three vendors I asked too.

Thanks for the update #Tee

np man...future reference for anyone ..

9 +39 leaves you exactly 1mm at the strut and 9+25 is top of wheel to fender flush at oem camber (-.65) With that you just do some simple math and figure anything out.

What about rear with 10" or 10.5"?

rears are more tricky since youre dealing with dynamic camber.

10+25 is fender flush at oem camber (-1.6) 44mm before it hits the frame/shock.

so for instance your 10 +28 will be 3mm sunk while leaving you 41mm at the shock. Of course now youll have to worry with ride height, final camber with roll or no roll before choosing a tire width.

one can say you can throw on a 265-275 on the rears with no issues but youll be riding 4x4 rolled or not. or you can slam it on 255.30 with -3.5 on roll with no issues. its very application specific.

It depends on the struts you're using too. My Broadways had maybe 2mm clearance with a 18x10 +19.

ya that coil housing flares out a few mm near the collar, which is where the rim rides near. iirc i think bc coils are built the same way.

I am dropped on H&R sports right now, but plan on doing ST coils once I save up. I had to do wheels first since my summer tires are done and I didnt want to buy for the Style 193's again.

I am expecting to need to roll rear but didnt want to mess with front.

Thanks again for the input, it really helps. I am trying to learn...

LACSTER, your car looks sick man.

I don't plan on trying to get SDC up front. Just DC and SDC in rear. This is my daily and our roads are not super great here so I can't go too crazy.

I get the sense you've fooled around with wheel fitment just a bit

I have 19x9.5+22 all around on my car no issues but I am an E90 though pre-lci. 19x9.5 is to small for the rear in my opinion should be atleast 19x10.5+22 thats my next goal. O and BTW I have no rubbing issues in the front. I'm running 225/35 all around

But i have VMR701

Have you considered going with 9.5/11.

You could do
9.5 et26 with a 235/35/19 or 245/35/19
11 et33 with a 265/30/19 or 275/30/19

It will poke about 5mm, and the front should clear coilovers. You just need a good roll and some trimming in the rear.

I don't really want to cut anything on my car. I will roll since I have a guy that can do it for me.

But maybe I don't understand fully what I need to actually cut.

I have 9.5 et22 in front and 11 et25 in the rear I did roll and trim the lip and no issues. If I have the car full of peeps it might rub slightly sometimes in the rear going 85-90 on the interstate. e90 pre-lci wheels are LC 818s
