Vmr vb3 and tyre query

Hey guys i was looking at painting my stock 135 wheels black but figured I may aswell just get new wheels?

I was wondering if I bought some vb3s if they would fit in my stock bridgestone run flats? May be a stupid question lol.



I'm trying to minimize cost!

Thanks In advance chase!

the true benefit of the Alufelgen cs7's are that they are specific for 1 series offset.
The VMR VB3 are a little more aggressive in the offset.

Both rims will work with stock tires.

Give Elliott a ring over at **********s ... he is the man!

I hear that its not the best to use aftermarket wheels with OEM RFT, since they have a harder sidewalls and that can lead to higher risk of damage to the wheels when hitting bumps/potholes.

well my friend. that is totally up to you.

I have crap roads and run aftermarket rims on stock runflats and have had no issues.
You will be more comfortable on better tires, but you will not kill the rims by any means using the stock tires.

They will fit. Not a problem. Our recommended size would be 225/40/18, 245/35/18.

I,m in bc, Canada and I just spend that for shipping here.
So, $500.00 for Australia is not that bad.
