agreed. vote definitely goes to lm's, but if you're looking for a cheaper alternative...the rs-gt's are very nice as well

Curious why the Tirerack web site calls for centering rings with LMs and LM-Rs? Are these not the right bore center for our cars??? If not, I don't like spending that kind of cash and then having an opening for vibrations.

I am leaning towards CH's.

if you are running around bad roads get the ch's they are cheaper to replace/repair. I've bent 2 19" Forged RS-GT's and the diamond finish on the lips of LM's RS-Gt's is impossible to duplicate when fixing lips.
But if you never owned a 1k wheels, go ahead and try it anyway, they are worth it.
