pretty much 100% agree. BBS wheels seem to be too heavy lately for some reason but definitely LM-R DBK

i'd still get the hre cf 43's in charcoal then so that the barrel wouldn't look out of place.. and i guess 19x9's all around (if they don't offer staggered) with bigger tires in the back and smaller ones up front..

or the 360 forged carbon series.. i loved camaross305's rims

bbs lm's and lm-r's are too heavy for their price..

Tough call. You should make a poll.

Win-win either way.

I do think the LM-Rs would show off your BBK better than the LMs...simply due to more open space in the wheels.

Rock LMs on one side, LM-R's on the other

Seriously you can't go wrong with either but the LM-Rs will be a tad easier to clean.

really can't go wrong either way, but if you can go wider like 10.5 the step lip will look even better.. I like LM's though just slightly more

Starting to see more and more cars with LM's and LMR's..... Beautiful wheels but I would imagine you wanting something a bit more unique for your car?

Definitely LM-R. Too many spokes on LM's so they loose the impact.

still up in the air on if i want to get rid on my HRE's but I'm digging the LM's... seeing people on here with them isn't exactly the same as the fact you never see any of the street and when you do their rep's!!

True but even the reps would do you fine since the hoopty remains in the driveway 24/7 lol. Just messin

I say keep the HRE or go with something completely different.

those LMRs look sick!
does the face of your HREs look small with the step lip?
my wheels look tiny sometimes with a regular lip
