Default VMR wheels - 2014 V702 18x8.5 +45

Props to @lilred. He got me in touch with a guy on MOCC and I was able to get a 'sponsorship' for VMR wheels down here in Anaheim; basically I pay cost for the wheels, they drill the center bore and bolt pattern to fit my car and they also hire a professional photographer and take pics of my car to promote their wheel on a non European platform. The VMR guy liked my car and accepted it. I should get the wheels within 2 weeks.

VMR is trying to figure out how to scale past the European market where they are well known. They have a new wheel in particular, the V702, that they feel will be a good choice for other cars besides Euros. I have been aware of VMR wheels for a while, but their designs are very European, they usually have very aggressive fitments and they don't really offer 5x114.3.

I think these V702 wheels in 18x8.5 +45 will be a nice fitment for MS3 and MS6 and the style will be a nice choice for the body. These are cast wheels and based on what I read they will land around 21-22lbs/ea.

I am debating either the machined finish or gunmetal, but after photochopping, I think I will do the gunmetals. I'll keep folks posted. I would be interested to get your feedback on the wheel and if you think its a good fit for Speeds.

This is the wheel-



This is the shitty photochop just so I could get a feel for them. Gunmetal def looks better IMO.

Thanks again @lilred. Hopefully we find a nice new option for Speeds.

I think the V702s are the only ones they are offering up at the moment unless I misread what the guy emailed me. I think because the V702s are a 2014 design and are coming into the facility as blanks. I could be wrong.

You getting yours powdered blue?

The VMR guy liked my car and accepted it. I should get the wheels within 2 weeks.

VMR is trying to figure out how to scale past the European market where they are well known. They have a new wheel in particular, the V702, that they feel will be a good choice for other cars besides Euros. I have been aware of VMR wheels for a while, but their designs are very European, they usually have very aggressive fitments and they don't really offer 5x114.3.

I think these V702 wheels in 18x8.5 +45 will be a nice fitment for MS3 and MS6 and the style will be a nice choice for the body. These are cast wheels and based on what I read they will land around 21-22lbs/ea.

I am debating either the machined finish or gunmetal, but after photochopping, I think I will do the gunmetals. I'll keep folks posted. I would be interested to get your feedback on the wheel and if you think its a good fit for Speeds.

This is the wheel-



This is the shitty photochop just so I could get a feel for them. Gunmetal def looks better IMO.



Thanks again @lilred. Hopefully we find a nice new option for Speeds.
Get them to make 17x8.5 and 17x9 rims that fit decent and come in at under 18 pounds. That would be great for us autocross guys. I would be more than happy to do testing on them

Congrats on that dude. A buddy of mine has a set on VMR's on his Golf R. They seem to be great quality.

You deserve the hook up @dale_gribble;

I think the gunmetal was a good choice!

If these wheels can exercise the wheel whore demons that possess my soul, that says a lot about them.

A guy from MOCC Forums, @mazdaspeedmyk; posted these on MOCC after he stopped by VMR's office yesterday. I am not sure if he is a member on here or not. He decided to go with the brushed setup. I think I am still going with the gunmetal.

In a way, they are just a cleaned up version of the Gen 1 wheel, which is why I think they will look so good on Speeds. It's a blocky symmetrical 10 spoke like gen 1s. It's gonna look killer on Gen 1s, no doubt.

These wheel aren't available just yet. From what I understand they arrive at the office here in SoCal around the 21st of this month as blanks and then they will be machined to 5x114 with 67.1mm cb. @Koke382; is a gen1 and he is getting a set.

Congrats on the sponsorship!
Am I seeing this wrong, but are the wheels a bit concave?
If so, bad ass

I do like persuading others in spending money haha.

I think I can honestly say I've wanted every wheel setup you've ran since the rx8's

Yo! I'm on here, peeping in windows and over fences. I'm going with the 18x8.5 +45, matte grey with brushed aluminum face.

Here's what I wrote on MOCC about my initial impressions of the wheel:

"I decided to go with the matte gunmetal with brushed aluminum face. It just popped when I saw it in person. Pictures don't really show the detail of the pattern in the brushed face.

The matte gunmetal has a slight shine to it, not completely flat like you'd expect. I took a few pics of the matte gunmetal and the brushed aluminum against my car, but I was in the shade so they're not very representative of the wheels.

They're heavy at about 22lbs, so I'm not excited for the added weight. I was talking with @color0, and I agree with him and put the V702 in the "style" category as opposed to "performance". I just wanted to take the opportunity to have something unique on the car."

Here are a couple more pics of the brushed aluminum:





I wish they were as concave as the ones VMR posts in pictures, but those are the 19x9 +35s. Velocity Motoring is looking to sponsor more Mazdas to help showcase their new product. They'll be looking until November 21. If you're in SoCal (VMR is in Anaheim) and interested, PM me and I'll put you in contact with them and they'll give you all the details. From their post on MOCC, "Please keep in mind, sponsorship does not include a FREE set of wheels. You will be heavily discounted and if given the chance.. participate in an awesome photo shoot from one of our top-notch photographers."

VMR-Wheels-V702-Multispoke

Now back to creeping in the bushes.

I am actually starting to lean towards the matte gray with brushed face myself now. If the gunmetal was a little glossier like other VMR wheels, I would rock it, but I already ran flat gunmetal wheels and didn't like em after a while.

It was a good call how they left the lip brushed too.

What do you guys think? I typically tend to lean towards darker wheels for contrast, but damn, some nice bright wheels look good on white too. Dark contrasts white and looks good and silver wheels look very clean.

I am kind of conflicted now...

That was the opposite of help. Lol. I do like dark, but I like shiny/glossy dark primarily. Matte darks tend to look like dirty wheels.

You look at wheels yet @Koke382;? Get some shots of the gunmetal please, taking a shot right across the face of the wheel (not head on, but flush with the face of the wheel). I am still having trouble understanding the concave of the 18x8.5 +45.

Get shots from a few different angles so I can do some photoshop please.

Dark colors and reds will look killer with brushed or the matte silver, no doubt. The matte silver has that kind of OEM look to it which is badass. White is just too monochromatic for me with silver/brushed wheels.

Hey @Koke382;, here you go:



Give me some good shots of your car and the wheels, and we can do some photochopping to give you some ideas.
