Difficulty locating et50 VMR

Finally ready to pull the trigger on a new set of wheels and can not find a rear 18" VMR 710 with 50 offset. Anyone else have this issue?

Use 45, it will work fine. That's what I'm using

with a 255 tire? Seems to be a rubbing issue depending on brand of tire.

Most customers run an ET45 rear. Most run a 255 tire without issues, if you are lowered, it might cause issues. Most just have their rear fenders modified to fit if they have issues, but for the most part, any rubbing issues are easily fixed.

I do have pre-orders open for the ET50s. They are currently in production. Give me a shout if you are interested in picking up a set! I'll be happy to help you out!

Had the VMR 710s et 45 in the rear with michelin a/s 3. Was running 255 and it always rubbed. I was on stock suspension. Had to get rid of them.

Don't get the et 45 in the rear.

I noticed that the VMR 710s are sold on Amazon at et50. Take a look at those.

Yep, if you just have a wait in order to get a wheel with a 5mm better offset, just wait.
