Hey VMR... I have a set of 710's that I bought used. They are in rough shape but I work sales at a large powder coating facility, so I guess it works to my advantage. I am having a hard time tracking down a color that is similar to your "hyper" or "super" silver. What supplier do you use, and what is the exact color code? The closest I have been able to come up with is Tiger Drylac's Mirror silver, but it looks a little more dull, and anodized aluminum from TCI. Most of our work is large scale industrial jobs, so we don't have the need to use silvers too often. Any info would be great! PM is fine if you don't want to share the information with everyone.

Thanks!

Hey VMR, just wondering......how much more does custom powder-coating add to the cost of the wheel? I mean, for show its great and all, but Ive had 3 sets of VMR wheels (2 19' sets and one 18" set) and at least 3 flats with 4 cracked rims (from NJ roads) and honestly-----they dont hold up very well to real world conditions out here. If powder coating adds $400 to the cost of a wheels, I would rather put $400 into strengthening it instead...make sense?

What Im saying is that yes its great you guys have all these color options and the wheels look awesome, but how bout some stronger wheels? I mean If I had to replace a cracked or dented custom powder -coated wheel, that would suck twice as bad.

Can you PM me the price on V710s in bronze or Sunken Treasure

I am looking for 18x8.5 up front and 18.9.5 in the rear with enough offset to run 235s and 275s

If you have the weight of those too that would be awesome. Thanks

We don't actually have any paint codes for our wheels. Our Hyper Silver is kind of hard to replicate as it's a multi-step paint process. It has a black base coat which gives it a little more depth. PM me if you have any other questions I could help you out with.

Our custom powder coat is offered to our customers as an optional add-on. We offer it as an opportunity for our customers to customize their wheels to better suit their style and personality. The wheel casting process is a bit more complicated then tacking on another $400 to create a stronger wheel. All our wheels are JWL, VIA & ISO-9001:2000 Certified with a load rating of 815kg, which exceeds the standard requirements.

I'll probably be picking up a set of these in Sunken Treasure. I was torn between Gunmetal or Bronze for my Black 328xi, but the Sunken Treasure pics just decided it for me.
