Unhappy Really Sad When People Told Me My Old Wheels Looked Better So I Went Ahead And Did...

This.










VMR V701 (3-series offset)
18 x 8.5 ET35
18 x 9.5 ET33
Fully polished by FLOSS

Falken FK452
215/40/18
245/35/18

ST Coilovers max low

Fenders all rolled and pulled

Do I rub? Yes. Waiting for that natural negative camber to set back in then it might go away. I only rub on the gas tank side slightly, nothing to would cause me to go ahead and shave it or adjust more negative camber in.

Rotiform studs + Project Kics Neo Chrom Lugs

Looks great! Im surprised you went with 18's, I like the chrome, and I rarely say that. I'm not a fan of chrome, but its done well here. Brave offset though.


But on a side note, build your car for you, not everyone else.

Man i hate mike jones, but dear god i love your car

I'm also surprised you went with chrome. Looks great though! I wouldn't say it particularly looks "better" or "worse" but it's something new so it's nice to look at!

Great job, as usual

Those look great! I think they look much better than your last wheels, but that is just my opinion and it isn't worth the electricity used to type it...

Build it the way you like it!

Looks good but I liked the CCW's. You did go with the better fitment than the last VMR's, so props on that though.

Tell you what...Chrome was different 6 years ago in the euro scene and it still is different today? Why? Because most people would rather polished/matte/powdercoated...therefore you WIN!

Nice as always!!
