Which one? BBS LM Reps (step or reverse lip)

So i decided on BBS LM reps but i'm not sure about whether to go with the step or reverse lip.

Alot of ppl on this board seem to prefer the step lip, possibly because it looks closer to the actual BBS LM.
I am leaning towards the reverse lip cause I've always like the deep dish look.
Help, I cant decide

btw- supposedly its been user confirmed that these wheels (F19x8.5 ET35 R19x10.5 ET40) with General tires (F245/35 R275/30) will not rub even with an H&R Race spring drop on an e92 (no fender rolling).
Right now im on the stock sport suspension and if I do lower the car, I dont plan on lowering it as aggressively as the race drop.
Do you think i'll be safe going with 245/275 tire sizing?
I'm not going with the common 235/265 sizing because the 10.5 looks WAAAY to streched on a 265.

So which one?
If I do lower the car, it'll be with full coilovers. Maybe a 1.5" up front and 1" in back

I think step lips look better and I think they are the stronger ones of the 2.

Already placed my order for the reverse lip... hopefully ill have them in a week or so
price was already rock bottom compared to other reps... I dont see how much more it could be discounted. Although it doesnt hurt to try
