Opinions needed on 19" rims BBS CH-R, ADVAN RS, VMR 701

BBBS Ch-r
Advan RS-D
Vmr 701


Need help with opinions for my Alpine White 328i. Its is currently lowered on H&R super sport springs. I decided on 19" 8.5 et 35 front and 19" 9.5 et 45 for the rear per recommendation of this forum.

I really want either BBS CH-R in black or Advan RS-D in black, but I also included the VMR 701 for about 1/3rd of the cost, but I'm leery of its quality and finish. Anyone have experiences with VMR rims?

Opinions welcome!




VMR 701 which are replica ADVAN RS in matte black

I think the vmr 701's and advans have too many spokes. Do the bbs come w a stripe?

I had VMR on my Golf R.
The quality is quite good. The finish was nice but one of the wheels I got was not completely round so it was not possible to balance it. Other than that I have nothing bad to say about them. But I personally do feel a low cost replica wheel doesn't belong to a 50k BMW.

And I am by no means an expert, but isn't that a RS-D pictured too?

Of the 3, I like the BBS CH-Rs. I also really like the VMR 710s and Breyton Race GT-Rs. Haven't owned a set of either, but a net search turned up both good and bad on the Breytons and very little on the VMRs.

I'm a fan of the BBS on the car. We did the 19in BBS CH in silver on ours. Feel free to PM me any questions on them!

I'd choose the BBS in matte black. Also for my own BSM F30 that wheel would be one my shortlist.

Keep us posted.

Cheers

I ran VMR RS4 reps (V708) on my Audi for 4 years. I have no complaints and I (when I say "I", I mean my wife ) put those wheels through hell.

If you have the coin, you can't go wrong with BBS anything, but VMR is a great money saving alternative.

Looks wicked, are they H&R sports or super sports? Mind posting more pics? Also what are the offsets and tire sizes?
