Everyone and their grandma has lms (fake ones anyways).

With that, I'd still get the BBSs.

only thing i dont like about HREs is that they dont look very racy, seem like more of a luxury wheel. But found this
http://www.canibeat.com/2011/05/its-...wheels-m3-e90/
and have come around. now a really like these wheels, same with the p40s. just look awesome in my opinion.

i think i would still go BBS, but it's tough. c93 is probably my favorite set of wheels from HRE. (i may be a bit biased though )

BBS over HRE any day. And I like the BBS Diamond Black finish in particular. I had RGRs on my A4 for a few years and got nothing but compliments while I had them.

Haha I might actually buy that guys wheels. He's the one who got me started
On thinking about new wheels. Thinking his are too stretched for my taste running 19x11 et30 with 275 rears. Got me little bit more okay about spending the money right now, now just thinking of getting new ones in my colOr and dims.

I really like bbs' my only gripe is I'm paying lots of money for afantadtic looking wheel which I'm okay with but EVERYONE rather has bbs' and even more people have bbs reps. I'm not one to show off how much I spent on rims like the guy on the thread was saying earlier, but it does kinda bug me when I spent good money on the real thing when everyone's repin fakes

My current two choices im now thinking are rather the bbs lms in graphite with polished lip (not super sure im going to dig the bling factor of a polished lip)
Or
HRE C93 with flat black center and polished black lip. Like the ones in the link i posted.

Phew long post typed with one finger in class on my phone haha

I love BBS but ive yet to see any with a nice fat stepped lip so ill still pick BBS over HRE. To bad they dont make any concave mesh face/stepped lip with titanium hardware.

Stretch looks ridiculous imo. Its really an incorrect fitment.
