VMR Wheels

I'm looking at purchasing VMR wheels.
How's the finish?
Any problems with peeling paint?
Is it paint or powdercoated?
Any problems with balancing? Does it take more weight to balance then other wheels (in the same price category)?


Thanks

Avant Garde=Low pressure cast
VMR=gravity cast

Avant Garde wheels are stronger. get them instead.

I was looking at their M359 CSL wheels, but they didnt have the dimension that I needed/wanted

19X9.0 and 19x 10 for the 2007 335i is a little too wide for my taste.

I'm actually looking for
19x8 and 19x8.5 with offset from 37 to 39.... similar to BMW original specification for BMW performance wheels

Diameter 8.5 to 9.0 is still acceptable... (i guess thats the closer...because I cant seem to find any aftermarket wheels with BMW diameter and offset)

Thanks for the input though!

Their is a difference between a low pressure cast and a gravity but it makes no difference if the company douse not stand behind their product. vMR has been around for a good amount of years and had a very good reputation as for avantgarde is fairly new. Call vMR direct I'm sure you'll have all your questions answered then make your decision.
Good luck
