great looking V man!!! ive tried really looking at the grille you have. What color black is it? it doesnt quite look matte, but not that shiny either.
mind helping out with what kind of black paint color you went with? that front end looks bad ass / super aggressive!!!
Thanks Paul, I received my VMB5's today. Now to install them tomorrow. I love the wheels, but my set appears to have a lil more blue hue than I expected....tomorrow will tell the tale!
The base of the matte gunmetal has a blue gray powder. There is a little "blue" tint to the gray but Velgen went with this over standard gray to give more depth to the finish. Depending on the lighting, the wheels have a dark gray appearance and in bright light, the hint of blue shows up in the highlights.
The color is totally unique and now I see it on the car, I love it more. I gotta say tho, I'm not lowered at all and I rub if my two kids are in the back seat. I know I'm running a 285/35-20 & not a 30, but didn't expect it to be an issue. You may wanna let others know...
I could be wrong, but on my sedan, the rims themselves are actually out beyond the body edge. That being said, even on a 30 series, they would prob rub. I can't see how a lowered car doesn't. I am on a factory spec alignment, what is that car using? Sorry, but after a 600 mile road trip yesterday with only my wife and a 6 year old in the rear seat, I am appalled with how much they were beating up my fenders.
The V in this thread is lowered on KW Coilovers and is dropped further than most of our customer's cars. We have quite a few V's with these wheels installed with the correct tire and no rubbing issues. Please send me images of your setup to firstname.lastname@example.org so I can help further.
I will email them in just a few min, but you have to remember 1" is only 1/2" radius. Not that much. I even asked you about this during our phone call and you said that the 1/2" on a stock suspension should be fine.
I just wanted to update this thread in order to provide additional information for the benefit of other members. After reviewing the images of Purevil's Sedan, the suspension is definitely lower than normal stock ride height. This combined with the oversized tire will cause rubbing under load. At this point, we are not sure why this particular Sedan is lower than typical stock suspension setup.
We always strive to provide the best recommendations based on the information that is provided to us at the time of order. If anyone is concerned about their current setup having fitment issues, please email me directly.
