VMR Quality Issues?

I'm thinking about running the Velocity Motoring V709's on my MB but was curious if anyone on here had VMR wheels any if they were of good quality?

Did a Google search and found a couple less then positive reviews on Audizone and Bimmerfest.

people on e46 fanatics rave about them. It depends moreso on the vendor and how much they're willing to stand behind their product than the manufacturer/brand. I might be buying some soon, and I honestly never questioned their quality.

i run 18" V710s on my E90.. as far as reliability goes i've had them on for about 2 months and they're fine.. and i've hit some pretty big potholes. i didn't know they fit on MBs though.

Any vibrations over 140 km/h ? I heard this as being a common problem but VMR just brushes it off as a tire problem

And they do indeed make offsets and bolt patterns for VW, Audi and MB - not sure if they always have as I only learned of VMR wheels a couple months ago

I have a set of staggered VMRs on my ride...I get a slight resonence in my steering wheel at about 120km/h....125km/h and it goes away...

New bushing all around, alignment/camber kit, new tires...and road force balanced.

No bends yet either....so yeah...theres something not quite right about my wheels.
