gotta ask. what the hell happened to the grill in front of the intercooler? that partial removal looks very strange.

Rims look awesome, nice photoshoot Charles.

Sounds great! Our V710's in exclusive 1-Series fitments only come in a HS, but custom powder coating options are available.

It was removed for additional airflow I assume.

They sure are 18's!

18x8.5 +45 with 225/40/18 and 18x9.5 +50 with 255/35/18. Fitment is perfect.

Hello Charles,

I found a distributor up here in Toronto, Ontario for VMR rims. Before I place my order I just want to confirm that the following spec's will fit on my 2010 128i.

18x8.5 45 with 225/40/18 (front) 18x9.5 50 with 255/35/18 (rear)

***please note that my car is completely stock and I have no intentions of lowering. I do NOT want to get into fender rolling or anything like that.

I'm also thinking about running the above tire sizes in a Hankook v12.

Thank you for your time,
"Hoopie"

Is the car in the original post on stock suspension? Do you think you would rub at all at stock height from putting 245's on the front wheels?

These rims always look awesome! But i've yet to see them on a car like mine, Crimson Red with chrome trim. Charles, any plans to do some more photo shoots using other car colors?

Hi Charles,

thx for the great pics, those wheels look great on the 1er.
Small question: I found this site on the web:
http://www.vmr-wheels.ch

Is this Swiss operation the 'european headquarter' of VMR wheels? if so, can I simply order wheels from these guys? I live in Belgium so I guess it would be cheaper to order from Swiss than from US....

Thx for your feedback!
Erik

The vehicle is lowered on KWV3's from what I remember. 245's unfortunately are very aggressive and will having rubbing issues.

We are always open for customers to do shoots. If there is a local Crimson Red Coupe in the Orange County area, feel free to send them my way.

Thx for confirming, I already got a quote from them (a guy named Mario) !!!
Looks like I'll be driving some VMR710's this summer !!! Hypersilver should look great on my Le Mans blue..

Finally, I can stop this nightmare of checkings wheels for their ET and calculating to see whether they fit etc....

great looking wheels! question - for a 135i with stock sport package suspension, what is the ideal size in 18" to space wheels out (without using spacers) and also to reduce wheel gap? Feel free to recommend appropriate tire size matches as well for to match the criteria as well. thanks VMR.
