Please add your name to the list if you are interested. This will at least give Peter from VMR some incentive to start production!!

Official list -

1. Sootyvrs (4x 19X8.5" et45 Gunmetal)
2. zamm3k - ?
3. BrokenVert (18" VMR 710 Gunmetal Finish)
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.

From reading the thread these are the people who have said they are interested.

Please can these people add their names to the official list above. Please remember this is to confirm that you would like to buy these wheels if correct size/offset is available.

Maybe list

1. M3R1 - 18"
2. e82vette - 18"
3. jumunro - 18"
4. fmxomar - 18"
5. jibaholic101 - ?
6. ben14142001 - 18"
7. fourtailpipes - 18"
8. izzodesh - ?
9. onehungevo -?
10. BlacknRedi - ?

That's around 13 people so far, assuming they add to the list and I'm sure there are a few looking in this thread who are interested but are waiting to see confirmed sizing and interest.

Lets make this happen everyone.......

Just a quick update, we're still doing tests on high offset rear wheels. Just as FYI, this involves getting a new wheel casted/machined to 50 offset, then doing the physical testing. Thanks!

I think Peter from VMR has already mentioned that they are doing some viability tests for 9.5" ET50 rear wheels and as this is not a commercial post, the supply of these wheels in 1 series offsets (if they become available) will be through any of the VMR retail chain available on this forum so I assume the retail price is the same as the ones currently available.

I would also make the assumption that with a few on the list that some special discounts can also be negotiated

Peter - Any more news

Yes you are correct. The ET50 wheel is still currently in the stages of impact tests. Once the fitment is viable we will definitely be updating you guys ASAP!

Thankyou for everyone's interest!

For those who want to see VMR v710 18" on a E82, Brandon from EAS has kindly put on a set on his 1 Series loan car with the currently available offsets

18x8.5" ET35 front
18x9.5" ET45 rear

It should give you an idea of what the 18's will look like

Great news Charles. Does this mean that the 19x8.5 ET45 and also the 18" ones will also need to go through all the tests?

Thanks for keeping us posted....

19x8.5 +45 has already been tested and passed. If the 8.5 +45 works well for you guys, it looks like we are ready to get the ball rolling!
