Default New Vorsteiner Wheels Installed!!!

My company works closely with Vorsteiner and they finally decided to borrow my car for development and promotional use. These are the new Vorsteiner V-FF 103's in Carbon Graphite for the Jaguar F-Type!

Wheel and tire specs:

Front: 21x9 +32 (265/30R21 Michelin Pilot Sport 4S)
Rear: 21x10.5 +25 (305/25R21 Michelin Pilot Sport 4S)

I'm lowered on H&R springs with ZERO rubbing. More wheels and options from Vorsteiner coming soon...

Really beautiful set up. I especially like the extreme concave profile of the rears.
...and that is slammed! I am impressed you don't rub.

Looks great. What are the weights, and how do you fit 20" tires on a 21" wheel? Which is it really?

Must be a mistype as tires in photos are 21s. As an aside I know many are running 305s on 10.5 inch wheels. Ftype17 posted a chart showing 295s max on 10.5 inch. Obviously 305s seem to work on 10.5 inch, assuming the rest of FR500GT's info is accurate.

Looks great. I have the VFF-103's on my M3 in that same graphite color - seems to work with most any vehicle color. Fairly light and reasonably priced, these wheels are a great alternative to pricey forged wheels.

I think you have that backwards lol Rohana is a new company that replicates bigger companies like Vorsteiner. All good

Doh I'm not used to posting 21"wheel/tire sizes..I fixed it. I am not sure about the weights, I will have to find out. Even though they are 21's the wheel design utilizes minimal spokes so it wouldn't surprise me if they are similar weight to my previous 20's.

Fixed! 305's fit just fine on the 10.5. I was running 295's on my last set that was 10.5 but it all depends on the wheel offsets and suspension.

I am sure it is only a matter of time but for now they will be available in 21's. These fit the F-Type R as well and they should be available for sale in the next few weeks!

Great looking setup!
Just one suggestion if you don't mind - upgrade those weeny brakes! You have done a huge amount of mods already so it's a shame the new rims really highlight the tininess of the base model brakes.
It's not hard to upgrade the rears from the misiscule 326 mm ones to the 376 mm ones, I have done it and there is a whole thread about it on here.
Not so sure about the front brakes as I don't think anyone has upgraded the 355 mm to the 380 mm, but I suspect it's a fairly simple "plug and play".
Of course if you get new rotors you should maybe get the Wortec two piece ones, available at VividRacing, and even consider their Brembo front caliper package seeing as the OEM 380 mm front calipers cost a bundle anyway.

+1. Michelin even publishes that the 305 will fit just fine on a 10.5" rim. 305 is the limit, though.

The wheels run $2800 for the set and it looks like the tires run about $1500. I am currently able to get my hands on a few sets if anyone is interested.

Lol I will double check and see if they have tested them on CCB already. If not, if anyone is local to me in Orange County, they are more than welcome to stop by and we can try test fitting one.
