E90 Concave Wheel Help

I just got a 2007 E90 320i and am looking at some 19" VMR VB3 or V710's (I really want some Morr VS7's but it would appear that noone sells them, or has ever sold them anywhere ever, at least certainly not in Australia or the Internet unless anyone knows different?)

I want to go as concave as possible so with the VMR's I'd like something more than 8.5 on the front as they aren't very concave at all, and at the back I want to go as wide as possible to get as much concavity as possible so the big question is what is the widest I can fit without too much hassle/risk of disaster? Does anyone know if 19x10.5 will fit on the back and 9.5 on the front or am I dreaming?

Sorry for the boring story and thanks in advance for any help

Not sure what you mean by "concavity," but I think you're talking about the offset. The offset is the distance from the center of the wheel to where it mounts to the hub. I'm not sure what it is, but for any tire, there will be a certain offset that you can use, and anything over that will rub the fender well. Check out the pic for a better idea of offset!

I hadnt but that's exactly what we're after, specializing in concave-ness! But what offsets will be the most I can squeeze out of the car?

what do being in IT and forums have to do with each other?

Also, you are in IT but you can't grasp the concept of "offset"?

Wow they are pretty badass huh! Loving that concavity if that is a word.. I just need to figure out what is going to fit without too much rolling and hacksawing..

Here is a pic of them on my car



and the way things are now day even if it isn't as long as enough of us say it it'll be a real word real soon lol. My fenders were actually flared a bit to fit mine in there. I went with the nitto Invo tire because it stretches really well without looking deformed lol.

OP what rear rim size you can run is directly related to what fender work your willing to do. With a roll in the rear those 10.5' will fit depending on the offset. If you want to go cray and trim the lip off you can run 12's in the rear relatively easily.

basically what I'm saying is, we need more info before we can tell you if it will fit or not. let us know!

I see, given the cost of coilovers and these rims I'll probably scrimp on any fender work at this stage and try 19x10 and 19x5 and hope for the best! Thanks..

The MORR VS7 was phased out and discontinued a few years ago and was succeeded by the MonoForged VS8.2

Long established to have a nice concave fitment for BMW E90s..







more info in below thread
http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=455424

The VS8.2 is still available for sale and we can ship over to you in AUS no problem! Feel free to PM me or email cal@morrwheels.com for more info including pricing...

This is my first post, but to answer your question yes you can run a 9.5 and a 10.5.. Check out Brada Wheels I just put a set on my 335i and they worked out great!

OP, although we don't generally "recommend" a setup like this, we've seen people run 19x9.5 ET33/19x10 ET38 (or even ET25) on their cars.

This is exactly what we're looking for! Does this kind of setup involve any kind of fender work or is it just an install and hope for the best scenario?

It's really going to depend on the offsets. If you want the rears to be really flush I would recommend rolling or shaving the rears, so that you can go with lower offset wheels. I believe the fronts can fit a 19x9.5 ET33 with a 235/35/19 tire (at least from what I've seen).
