19x8.5" ET40 VMR VB3

I'm really looking hard at this setup. I think the flatter spoke lends itself better to the F30. Similar to why the F10 M5 looks sooo good on the F30.

Since we know the 19x8.5" ET35 VMR V710 fit great I'm wondering how well these will sit.

Worse case I could run a tiny 3-5mm spacer.

What do you guys think?

Too many spokes. The color looks good.

Classic BMW styling, should fit too.

If there are clearance issues it would be brake clearance, which would be fixed with the spacers. I personally don't think spacers will be required with this setup though.

Not trying to discourage you. I just think the look of the f30 lacks sportiness and the rims wouldn't help.

No worries mate. That feedback is precisely why I posted.

I think its good to get outside perspective, other may notice things I hadn't at first.

The msport front end or the front lip that IND sells will compliment rims with a lot of spokes.
