Talking TEASER VMR V701 Matte Black on my E92

So I just sold my VMR V715 and wanted to go a bit more aggressive with my styling, so I decided to pick up a brand spaken new set of VMR V701 in Matte Black on Falken FK452 Tires. I went a little wider in the tires, so I am sitting at 245/35/19 at the front and 275/30 19 at the rear. I am also lowered on H&R Sport springs.

My hat goes off to Peter at VMR and their whole crew, they were all very helpful. Apologies for crappy iPhone pic's...hence the "Teaser" until it stops raining and I can give my E92 a proper wash and take some decent pics.

Enjoy.

My older V715 and the new V701 receiving their new Falken rubber.

Actually, just a tiny bit in the rears, only when I went over some major bumps, but I do need to get the wheels aligned BIG TIME, so I think that should take care of those issues, and if not, I will give Mr. Long Tran a call for a fender roll. I actually want to try to put some spacers on, if that is even possible, so I might just roll the rears anyways.

So you want to add spacers after you just bought a set of new aggressive wheels?

What I want to do is have the wheels as flush to the fenders as possible. That is what I am going for. I was originally going to get the VMR VB3 19x10 Rear and 19x9.5 fronts, which look killer on the EAS Supercharged M3.
