Best wheels...?

I need wheels. I want to know what other people think would look best on a 335 coupe, especially if you have one...

I'm considering getting either the Morr ms8
Or the Bbs cx-r 19"

But if there are any better looking wheels, bring it to the table.
I'm open for suggestions.


P.s. SPACE GRAY, I want 19" staggered, matte black.

The dtm-10 is a lot more spaced out than I would like the dtm-one is pretty cool...

The hre101 look pretty cheap.

And yes the sky is blue

I love the CX-rs on e9xs, and the offsets are pretty solid for spacer less fitments, but like project said its all personal preference if you're talking about what looks the best. My only reason for wanting RGRs instead of the cx's was the weight.

Does price matter? If not here you go volk, hre, bbs lm or lm-r, yoko advantage line. I know I didn't given models for some of the brands, but that for you to choose. Just wanted to throw out some of the lightest, strongest, and best looking wheels out there. Oh and did I forget to mention probably the more expensive ones.

Best wheels?
That is such a subjective question.
Car color, cost, and a whole laundry list of other things go into selection.

I like my Forgestars but they are not for everybody.
Go look at some wheels.

the best wheels are the ones that are round and stay that way.

OP,

I was in your shoes a month ago until I decided that forgestar f14 (super deep concave rears) it is. They look awesome, however, some have had bad experience - bent wheels without any apparent reason - and some have had great experience with them. Porsche forum people, especially, love them for their performance.

I think what edirtaynine meant was to do some research on whatever wheels you finally decide upon, on their reputation for not getting bent.

Thank you for your input, I know for a fact I don't want the F14s from forgestar, like you said some of the reviews are pretty bad, and plus I feel like everyone and their brother has them.. I want something a little different. =]
