F14 vs. VMR710

Hi All,

Ok I'm driving a 2010 E92 M-sport LeMans blue with OEM type 225 19" wheels and PSS 225/35/19 and 255/30/19.

I'm thinking about switching to either Forgestar F14s or VMR710s. Options are for either silver or black finish in either wheel on the LeMans blue. Help me decide!

I have all black trim on the car (black kidney grille, black A-pillar, tint, etc..) I can't decide if black wheels make it look totally cool or if I'm about to go clubbing with Ray Lewis.

Here are some sample pics of either F14 or VMR710 in silver or black finish. Not all the samples are E92, but all are LeMans with black trim.

Thanks!

I would recommend the F14's due to weight and quality. On color, in your case, I would go with a silver or a flat graphite color like in the first picture. Looks sexy.

Black wheels can definitely work, it just depends on how you set the car up. I really like how this looks.







It's up to you though!
