VMR Wheels: My E92 running VB3 19x9.5 and 19x10

Decided to do something not commonly done around here and glad to report success! In the pictures, the car is running sports suspension... with coilovers on the way I wanted to show that it is OK to run 19's without a drop

VMR Wheels VB3 19x9.5 ET33 and 19x10 ET38 (with 5mm spacer)
Running on 235/35/19 and 265/30/19 General Exclaim UHP:







Have a great long weekend

I want to keep the stock sport suspension if I get new wheels one day and these photos don't look bad at all. Thanks for sharing.

I have seen this car in person everyday this week. The contrast look on this montego blue is amazing. VB3 19x10 concavity is sick too. Good combo choice, Peter. =)

nice! i agree it doesn't necessarily need a drop. i should take a pic of mine too and show it. on the other hand, I'm also awaiting a drop because it does look better.

btw Peter, Thank you for the wheels I got a few months back through Vantage Motors (you probably don't know who I am though).

Its a step by step process to see and demonstrate exactly what works and what doesn't. The "stretched" look is fairly popular on other cars so at least I can give it a shot

No rubbing whatsoever after several hundred miles of hard driving.

This is with 235/35/19 on 19x9.5 ET33 + sports package. I can't say the same about any other configurations though.

Next step is to lower, swap tires, and report results

I don't know your name but from your location I know you are Jimmy's brother in law. Just picked up the car, right? Any chance we can see some more pictures of your car?

haha, yes, you got it, but I've had the car for >4 months. LOL! I have not really taken any good pics since it hasn't been lowered and I know my first response if I post is "drop it".

But if I ever get a chance to take some nice pics, I'll send them your way. Or if you ever want to take pics of it on the weekends, I'm there at least once a month (like this week, but going with a loaner and I'll be down again in 2 wks)

Thanks again for the awesome wheels!

Found one right after install (don't mean to jack the thread with my crappy pic). Had windows tinted that same day. Since then I installed front aero lip, and m3 rear lip spoiler. keeping it simple.
