Summer Wheels VMR content

So last week these arrived:



I really like how they packaged their products.





Every thing was kept safe and no damage from shipping.

Even some small touches like their center cap packaging were impressive.




So what I ordered was some V803 19" in Solar Rain Flake.



This color is really amazing, it's hard to tell but you really get two colors out of it. In sunlight you get a light grey to silver color, when it gets darker the color shifts more to black.

I was only able to get them on today and the weather has been crappy. So I don't have any good sunlight pictures yet. I'm hoping for Sunday to get some time and get a few good pictures of the setup. So for now enjoy the rain soaked photos:





I will say Brandon from VMR was a big help in getting everything ready and sent out to me. Anytime I asked a question he would get back to right away, and made the whole process very easy. A+ service from him and the rest of the crew at VMR, very happy with the look.

What is the tire profile? I was considering the exact same size you have except with 40 profile as I don't want to worry about bent rims with lower profile. 40 is as low as I want to go, personally.

VMR uses the center cap size from the e46 days of 68mm while the f30 is 70mm

Our wheels take a 68mm cap. We know for sure that both the 2 Series and X1 caps fit the wheels. We'll look into the F30 caps!

I just want to post an update about VMR and Brandon from VMR Wheels.

I had an issue with the TPMS sensors not working from when I got the wheels. So Brandon started working to take care of this issue, keep in mind VMR uses a vendor for the TPMS sensors.

Brandon kept me up-to-date as he spoke with their vendor, and after a little bit I had four new sensors sent to me at no charge. Brandon also told me they would cover the cost to have the new sensors installed. So I had no issues with having to replace out the sensors.

The good news of it all was that only one sensor was bad, so I was able to avoid having the dealer pull all 4 and risk any damage to the wheels, my biggest concern.

So again big thanks to Brandon taking care of this, VMR Wheels has great customer service and I would highly recommend them. VMRWheels

I'm guessing ET35 offset in the front, is the rear offset ET40 or 45? When you take more pictures can you take one from the rear to show the amount of tire that is beyond the wheel well? Thanks!!!
