    I know you like the 710's from VMR. I have a set of VMR, too. They make great wheels at an affordable price. If I had to make the decision all over again, then I would have considered HRE monoblok P 40. Either way, order a 5th wheel so you can change out the bad wheel and have a substitute when you repair the damaged one. An 18 can also fit in the back with a little modification. The issue I have is not styling but weight, strength , rotational inertia and my mechanics face everytime he takes off my wheels. just my 0.02

    I was emailing back and forth with a guy directly from VMR to get mine

    Don't have his details anymore, try looking on some of the American forums
