    Exclamation Need help buying a set of wheels.

    I've been looking at wheels and I'm looking to purchase vb3s with some rubber and probably springs for now, if a vendor could hook it up for being a forum member or something it would be greatly appreciated

    Silver VMR VB3's
    18x8.5, 5x120 +20 - fronts
    18x9.5, 5x120 +45 - rears

    I was also wondering if I would be able to have the tires mounted on the wheels before shipping**

    Hankook Ventus V12 Evo
    225/40ZR18 92Y XL - fronts
    245/35ZR18 97Y XL - rears

    Also I found these sizes looking through forums but if something sounds funky please let me know

    and H&R Sport Springs

    There are a ton of sales going on, did you look in the forum?

    @3W Distributing has a sales on springs right now and wheels.

    @ModBargains also has a wheel sale going.

    Good time to buy, go for it.

    Yeah I checked modbargains but they dont have an option to purchase wheels with tires without calling them, so I thought I could just reach out to the vendors over the interwebs

    I prefer talking on the phone, they can discuss fitment, offsets, strength, wheel weight, etc. Make sure you research all that before buying a set of wheels..

    I've done research on the VB3's and I've only heard good things about them, gonna call them tomorrow and see if they can have them over-nighted, thanks for the advice.

    Depending on what your trying to accomplish with your car, vb3's aren't the lightest wheel out there, but they are strong, look good, and are priced well.

    These will be strictly for street use, and I just like the oem look. Clean and simple especially with a mild drop.
