help with VMR 718 fitment

hey guys, i have done a little bit of research over the past couple weeks and think i am going to get a set of the VMR 718's for my 650i,


http://www.velocitymotoring.com/wheels_v718.html

do any of you guys know if i can swap out the tpms sensors from the stock rims to the rims or would i have to purchase the sensors with the rims?

does any body know what offset works best for the 6 series?

last question, my 650 is saphire black with tinted windows and i like an understanted look, so i am thinking about silver or the gunmetal grey,

opinionwise what do you guys think for those two colors

no way to know until you have them on... if they rub, you'll need them...

FYI 9.5" is the widest you can go in front without it protruding or rubbing. this is with a 15 offset. any higher and the rim will rub, any lower and the rim will go out the fender... this is based on my own experience with my new rims which were 20x9.5 +15offset

Hyperblack isn't a color offered on the new V718's, just the CSL wheels.

OP: I think I've been speaking to you over email in regards to this set. Obviously from the post above it looks like if you can run a Et15 offset, then I've got a perfect set for you. Feel free to just email me back once you've got some ideas flowing

I have the 718's in hyper silver on my car. No spacers required. I have the 19x8.5 in the front and 19x9.5 in the rear. 20mm offset in the front and 22mm offset in the rear. I've contemplated about putting a very small spacer on the rear but am more worried about the rock chips that might follow.

Hope that helps.
