Vmr V721 1er Offset

Anyone from VMR able to comment on when these wheels will be available for the 1ER. Would love to see what they would look like, the design would accent the concave look really well even with a high offset.

I have tried for both 18 and 19" fitment and VMR has no information when they might be available. They do have E9X fitment which is quite aggressive for our cars but doable.

I told them they would have serious interest on these forums if they made a 10+ set group buy or limited run.

I think they would sell a bunch if they release our offsets. There are so many people chasing somethign different to the CSL reps. Even though the CSL reps are awesome, until their is a proper ZCP replica for our cars I wouldn't consider them. Ive thought of V701 but the V721's have somethign cool about them, reminds me of 18" E9X m3 wheels.

Hey guys,

As you know, we try to cater the 1-series market but it requires especially high offset (+45 - 50) As it's a new design, we're currently catering the larger 3-series, Audi A4, VW GTi etc. markets. However, 1-series will get their share in due time!

I appreciate you guys creating this thread since it shows us that you guys are very interested in this design. We'll surely push the 1-series market and have sizes available in both 18's and 19's, aggressive and bolt-on fitments.

Thanks for the reply

Any idea when "due time" is? Are we talking a month or two or mid year? I have an event coming up in about 3 months so Id like to have new wheels by then and these are my preference by far as most CSL reps look average.

Still don't have 1-series fitment for this model, but we are planning on bringing it in in the future. We definitely can put together wheel/tire/TPMS combos.

Excelent! Thank you. I'll be in touch. I'm looking forward for those V721's.

Bump. My new-to-me 1er is going to need lighter wheels than these MSport boat anchors at some point and the V721 is winning my vote so far. Not particularly interested in 19s but would dig 18s with 1-series offsets.

VMR, do you guys have weight specs and pricing on current 18/19 inch offerings to give us a ballpark?

VMRs aren't known for being light. I wouldn't expect an improvement over stock even if they had them in 18" 1series offsets, which it seems they don't.

Yes, we do!

Most of our wheels should be around the same weight of your factory wheels, if not lighter, while generally being larger in diameter, and wider.

Thanks! It looks like there is a modest weight savings. M261s are 26 front, 28 rear. The V721s in 19s are 26 front, 26.5 rear, and 1 inch wider than stock at both ends. I would imagine 18s, if they are offered, at the same widths would be a bit lighter than that.

18s would definitely be even lighter. Unfortunately we're only stocking the 19s right now.
