First ever cosmetic mod

Just ordered my first ever cosmetic mod in my life for any car..Just got VMR V718 wheels (hyper silver) for my e92 335 space gray coupe.

Special Special thanks to Alan from **********s for hooking me up with a fantastic deal..will post pics when they are mounted.

Quick question: what's everyones feeling on the Hantook V12 tires? Also, will the current TPMS sensor work if they transfer it once the tires are mounted or doi have to get new ones? So excited for these new wheels!!!!Thanks for looking

Wheels aren't always only a cosmetic mod. What are they replacing?

I believe the TPMS is inside the tire on the Air Valve so it's got to be "transferred" before the tires are mounted.

Hey bro can you PLEASE post pics? I am literally in the same spot as you. I have the same exact car and have been in contact with **********s. Can you do me a huge favor and explain how this process works step by step: as far as order, shipping, getting the tires, where you got the tires/rims put on your car, etc.

I'm literally clueless on how this works but am extremely interested in this.

Thanks!

I just wanted to say again, I appreciate your order support! I know that we went back and forth between a few different wheel choices and I'm sure that the VMR V718 are going to look great on your car. What's next on the mod list once you receive the wheels? Let me know what you have in mind as I’d love to help you achieve the goals you have for your car!

The Hankook V12 tires have increased in popularity as of late. You'll be able to find some killer deals on tirerack.com and I do believe that there is currently a mail in rebate form for some extra savings!! You have the option of either purchasing an entire new set of TPMS to fit into the new wheel setup or simply have the tire shop transfer your existing TPMS to the new wheels. Once you get your wheels please send me back some pictures so we can feature it on our website. I can't wait to see it installed on your E92 335i!

I'm not sure if you've already spoken to myself or another of my co-workers but I do want to let you know that I have all the answers for you. Don't take my word for it though, you can view what others have to say about myself here in the vendor comments/review/feedback forum. I'll go ahead and send you a PM and we can discuss some of you questions and I'll do my best to give you the answers you seek!
