BBS LMs or LM-Rs?

I've always loved LMs, and the LM-Rs are growing on me.

Either will look great on your car, Mike. I almost pulled the trigger on LM-R's when my shop had a set in stock, but they were a bit too much $ for me.

I've never seen a car that doesn't look good on LM's. I can't say the same for LM-R's because all I've seen them on are E9x 3'er and M3 so far.

The price difference between the two is a bit different. But other then that, i would personally go for LM-R's. I agree with WJ4 that both would look great but LM's are getting so played out now that there are reps. It seems everywhere i turn there is LM's. No offense to those that have it, its a great alternative for those that dont want to spend that kind money on real LM's. But to be different now, you gotta get LM-R's.

either one is beautiful. I think the LM-Rs are a bit more aggressive looking and lately I've been liking them more than the LMs

that alone is makes me want to consider different wheels.

if you ignore that fact that, and based the decision based on how the wheels look on e92s, i like LMs better. LM-Rs suite the M3 way better for some reason, i think because the e92 is so smooth and plain that it needs busier wheels like LMs, whereas the m3 is more aggressive and can rock more plain looking wheels.
