Is anyone running a Vossen VVS CV3 set up???

I ordered Vossens VVS CV3's in 22x9 22x10.5. I haven't been able to find a picture online of a E65/E66 with these rims. Has anyone seen these on our car??? I also want to know if I will have any issues with rubbing if I drop the car using H&R springs.

Front Tires: 245/30/22
Rear Tires: 295/25/22

Unfortunately I can't post a pic.

Thanks,

SKH1

Somebody has them done in gray! But they're 20's, not 22's. Look through the first few pages of threads and you'll see some pics.

And you shouldn't experience any rubbing!

Thanks for the feedback. I'm anxiously awaiting for them to come in. I'll search to see if I can find them in the graphite you're talking about.

Yup. 265 and 295 is they way to go. If you wanted, 22x10.5 all around also fits

I've seen a couple cars running the 10.5's all around and it looks pretty nice. The shop I'm getting them from is recommending a 245 up front. Any downside?

It's a little on the small side plus I'm not even sure most 245 have the proper load ratings.

I just called vossen and they said to go with a 245 as it is the best fit for the wheel well. He said a 265 may rub when turning.
