Talking My New VMR VB3 - 19x9.5, 19x10

Took some quick picture of my new gunmetal VB3's. I gotta say I'm very happy with them. They are: F: 19x9.5 et33 with a 235/35/19
R: 19x10 et38 with a 265/30/19

The tire in front is def. a little more streched that I thought in would be. 245 tire prob. would have been a better choice, or an 8.5inch wheel. Love the concavity on these wheels. No rubbing issues at all.

I have a 5mm spacer on the back, wondering if I should make it an 8 or 10, or just leave it. Also trying to decide to go with BMW or the VMR centercap.

Looking at the pictures it def. translates better in person for some reason. Maybe I suck at taking pictures!

And before anyone says it, i know, it needs a drop.

Yeah, thanks again. Too bad it does NOT hit the strut like the other guy said. I might try an 8 or 10mm.

I'm most likely not dropping. The roads are too bad here. I 'll prob. try a 275 rear 245 front. when I need tires.

I'm in the same boat, the wife wants BMW center caps, I think it's kinda wrong running factory logos on aftermarket wheels and would prefer the VMR centers

It's because of your 4x4 stock suspension. You'd probably hit with coilovers.
