2nd pic if satin black lc818

If your not trying to murder out your car I would go with silver wheels because I like wheels that contrast with the paint of the car. I like the design of the lc818 more though so if they come in hyper silver those would look great on your car.

I liked the LC818's on my car, nice aggressive look...made the car look like it meant business

although, Lemans looked great as well, clean, classy look

If I had to choose, LC818's, but both went well

Satin Black LC818 on Jet Black E93 will look sick!
That's the route.
Hands down.

I'm not a fan of black wheels with chrome window trim.

Can't go wrong with either IMHO.

Lemans for classic and classy.

818 for aggressive.

I have the 818s on my car right now and they look pretty aggressive. And b/c of the design they look like 20s instead of 19s. You can't go wrong with either one though. My first set of wheels were the LC Lemans

Im in the same position. Can't decide between the classic lemans or the simpler designs. Right now, I'm leaning towards the lemans tho.

i was in the same boat. These were the two wheel choices that stuck out the most. I think either will do. I went with Leman style. I would just ask.....CLASSY or AGGRESSIVE???? I'm guessing maybe more toward the aggressive side considering the M3 skirts??

I'll be dropped on h and r sport springs and I want the wheels as flush as possible

Would 19x8.5+30 front and 19x10+22 rear fit my e93 with no rubbing issues if I run 235/35/19 front and 245/30/19 rear tires???

Tough choice as they both look nice. I could live with either as long as they weren't black.

I think with that offset and drop in the rear you would want to roll. Especially if you ride 4 people.

I think my rear fenders are rolled by the previous owner so I guess I'll be good with +22 rear.

Front is no issue, rear would require a roll but yes, doable.

Yea if I do the 818's I'll definetly have to black out my window trim but if I get the lemans I'd leave the trim chrome ..

I love both wheels and I don't know which ones to get still!!!!!

there are SO many lm reps.

i think the 818s are a rep of some japanese forged wheels, but their styling is by far less common.
