Velgen Wants to Hear from Us!

I've been looking at wheel options for a couple weeks now and have narrowed my list down to a few different wheels. The one at the top is a Velgen VMB7:







After several emails with the company it turns out they dont make this wheel to fit our Jeeps, yet. Jorge at Velgen informed me that they need to see more interest before its worth their time to make a run.

They have sold exactly 40 sets of VMB5s to us and are now making the VMB9 for our Jeeps:



Jorge asked that anyone interested in VMB7s, or any other wheel they offer, should shoot him an email (Jorge@velgenwheels.com) and express interest. The more the merrier even if you aren't interested in purchasing a set!

He would also like to know if anyone wants a 20" option since tires options are slim for 22s. I added a poll to see which size would be more popular.

Thanks!

Re: Velgen Wants to Hear from Us!

21's are the way to go - 20 leaves too much rubber and 22 isn't enough rubber (unless maybe you're driving on Cali streets)

There does seem to be more options in 21s for tires. 295/40/21 and 315/40/21

Re: Velgen Wants to Hear from Us!

Just giving my .02 but I had 22s and now have 21's and I'm much happier with the 21's. When I got my 22's I bought an extra tire b/c Pirelli no longer made the tires. I had my shop search all over the country to round up 5 that were remaining.

Ask Tom (@14stormtrooper) how that worked out having a backup tire. He bought my setup when I sold the SRT and he ended up busting a tire not too long after and thankfully had the 5th tire.

Re: Velgen Wants to Hear from Us!

These are from Oct of last year, as recent of pics as I got since she's been in hibernation since. She's going under the knife again in a few weeks once the salt is gone and she's allowed out to play.

Tires are Pirelli P-Zero 295/40/21

Re: Velgen Wants to Hear from Us!

I inquired about ordering a set of the 5's. Was told not available till March. I'd like to see a set of the 6 on black on my ride too.

Re: Velgen Wants to Hear from Us!

I bought a set of VMB5's recently but I would have gotten the VMB7 if it was available.
