E93 Project Vert. Pt2

Since we are playing the aggressive fitment game, doing it big requires a lot of hard work and patience with trial and error, especially finding right size wheels with proper offset. Not to mention right tire sizes too!
Without going deep into our pockets, we narrowed down either to go with Linea Corse or VMR as our wheels of choice for test period. So after talking with many friends and suppliers, we decided to go with VMR wheels since they have the sizes and offsets that we are looking for, and yet they are very affordable.

We opted for VMR VB3 aka CSL replicas in 19x9.5 +33 and 19x10 +38 as wheel of our choice due to its classic design, and the face of these wheels also has drastic concavity compared to other makes, which gives the wheels a larger than life look when in motion.

The front need 5mm spacer to clear the coilover collar. So spec on the front is now 19x9.5 +28. Slight poke w/ stretch tires = aggressive fitment. Especially when E90s come with plastic front fenders (ouch!) ;)

The rear is 19x10 +28 (w/ 10mm spacer) with -2 degree camber. Hellaflush?!

We really liked how everything turn out in the end. With right wheels/offset and a little bit of research and work, anything is possible.

Sorry for the long post.. but this E93 is simply clean!! I espcially love it when the retractable hardtop at work!! so sick!!

Much thanks to Joe & the staff @ Auto-Logic of San Bruno, CA., Nelson @ Megan Racing, Charles @ VMR Wheels.

I will be updating more of this car very shortly.. new custom offset wheels are on order! ;)
