I would recommend something like a 19x9.5 ET22 in the front and 19x10 ET25 in the rear. If you're interested in picking up a set of VMR Wheels in Australia, contact Mars Performance.

For the 1 Series, we would recommend an 8.5 ET45 in the front and 9.5 ET50 in the rear. We also offer rear offsets up to ET58 on other models that can accommodate a 265/35/18 tire!

Would I encounter any rubbing issues with the 255/35/18 in the rear with no drop stock height

With an ET45, there may be some rubbing issues that would require a bit of added camber. There would be no issues with the higher offsets.

I would recommend reaching out to VMR Wheels EU. If they are unable to assist with the powder coating, please let me know and I'll do what I can to assist.

They told me, that Europe does not offer any powder coating regarding the quality standard here. Is powder coating that much worse comparing to a paintwork?
And do you have the exact colour type for me?

PS: It would be great, if you could send me some other pictures of a black E82 or better E88 with those wheels in midnight blue

Powder coating is a more durable finish than a standard painted one. I can't speak on what "quality standards" they have in Europe because I'm not familiar with that. Perhaps you can source a set in a standard finish and have them refinished by a local powder coater.

Here are some pictures of Midnight Blue on black cars!

No one will offer an ET50 V703, but we offer our V801 in ET45 front and ET50 rear, V810 in ET45 front and ET58 rear, V702 in E45 front and ET57 rear and V710 in ET45 front and ET50 rear. Any VMR Wheels dealer can contact us in regards to availability on these specs.

Did anyone run into issues with tpms sensors and valvestem fitment? I just got some V803's and the collars on the Huf stems wouldn't tighten down enough on the wheel. Which brand should I get?

I've never heard of this issue coming up with the OEM sensors, but you may just need to use a larger gasket.

Looking to replace my stock Style 255 wheels (16x7 square setup on RFTs) with some staggered VMRs (8.5/9.5) and a set of performance tires. Sent in a Contact Request through the website and am just waiting to hear back now!

Speaking of tires, what has everyone here gone with? I know that Michelin PS4s are kind of the gold standard of performance tires, but I've also seen people mount Hankook Ventus among others. I've also seen the right sizes on TireRack for Dunlop Direzza Star Specs and Pirello P Zeros. Anyone have experience with those?
