Wait, do they actually look 100% identical? Because I've always felt they looked different somehow... perhaps it was the photos. VMR has some AWESOME pics out there.

I'm interested in a set of 18's within a month, so if anyone could point out the differences for me that would be great..

EDIT: M310's don't come in 18x8.5 or 18x9.5, so VMR it is.

but I'd still like to know the difference. If the M310's came with the gunmetal/machien face in 18" sizes with .5 wider widths... I'd get it instantly.

Cons: harsher ride, wheels more prone to bending/cracking, less performance.

Pros: looks better

I decided to go with 19" since roads here aren't that bad, pothole here and there and they look nicer. Still undecided on whether to go AG m310 or vmr v710's.

Go with whatever you feel safe & comfortable most.

Have you decided what color of the wheel yet? I read that your car is AW (under your sig).

You should get custom powdercoat Bronze.
It will look SICK on your car.

I've been to EAS's show room to see their powdercoat wheels & I immediately fall in love with the Bronze. Too bad I had already ordered the Storm Grey pior to the visit.
I do like the Storm Grey on my car a lot, but the Bronze looks BADASS.

It's a quite dark, but not like matt black wheels.
It looks like you have brake dust on all over the wheel & it looks absolutely amazing. The picture doesn't do half the justice.

virk,
ok, since they look identical & you cant decide, how about ask for the weight of both. & pick whatever lighter.

Exactly what he said. I have the AG M310's and i go into my garage just to look at my sexy wheels. But damn on rough roads the ride is harsh as hell and i dented a rim on an average sized pothole at 30 mph.The wife just hit a driveway approach curb a couple inches up on the rise and dented the f out of my front right...I have loved these wheels but they arent tough by any means. With 30/35 series tires theresnothing there to protect them. The finish on the inside of the tines on mine is eroding very slightly after a year and only 12k miles.

What kind of tires were you running with the AGs? Run-flats or not?

Anyone else has feedback or updates. I can't believe this thread has no pics!
