Wheel emblem help

Okay guys & gals, I need your help.

I purchased the car used and had wheels that had the "m" sticker on them (well on 3 of them). I purchased a set of OEM "M" emblems but they are too small. So this leads me to believe that I have some sort of replica rim. My question is which one and where can I find the replica emblems? After searching the forums, the best I can come up with is maybe VB3 wheels but I havent found them emblem dimensions to confirm.

Any input would be appreciated. Below is a picture of the new one up against the old one.

Thank you in advance for the help!

It would maybe help if you showed a picture of the whole rim so we could see the design rather than a blurry close up shot of a lug, some black paint, an emblem sticker and your fingers...

Might be to car away but its the only one I got at the moment.


I think they are VMR VB3s but could be wrong.

Does that sticker fit on your steering wheel?

Do you trust the source you bought the stickers from? Because I was gonna say those stickers don't look right to me. The real things have a more rounded, bubbley, 3D look to them, like the one on your wheel. But like someone else said, the pic is blurry.

Yeah I purchased them from a vendor on here and measured them as well and they seem to be the 18mm x 10mm size. I will try to take a better picture with my camera and not my phone.
