In 19"? If that's the case, I think the HRE you've got now will look better. But the LM/LM-R in 20" (with the widerlip) looks awesome, but I guess those only fits the e9x M3.

LM-R looks cleaner for some reason. LM has too many spokes for my liking.

I was asking the same question...

I was set on LMR's but I think I would go with silver LM's. Tough call, but either way, it will look great 4 sure.

EDIT: I prefer the LMR's as far as cleaning, LOL.

Most likely going 19's... between the NJ roads and the offset on the 20'' rears i'm leaning toward 19's!

I would go with BBS LM's gold.

Every other color is played out
and so is the LM-R;s.

Sup Craig,

If you want a classic clean look...go with DBK LM's. It won't look all that much different or better than your current setup though.

If you want something rather unique to stand out from the thousands of AW coupes here....I'd go with the gold LM's for sure. You change rims every year anyways so don't worry about getting bored with the setup lol

Alan
