Need help 19 inch bbs Lm hyper silver wheels or keep my style 230 wheels....

Hi guys I've heard reps are good and some think bad.. I currently have a chance to buy a set of bbs Lm reps and also sell my style 230 and I'm starting to get cold feet as the 230 are sweet. Where I live though bbs Lm replicS or. Of are not common . I like having the after market look but also like stock... Any helpful opinions welcome , I know it's really what I think but I just can't make up. My mind.. Worried of the rep quality.

Correct me if I'm wrong but oem 230's are made by BBS right? So between reps and authentic, I would go for authentic in a blinkof an eye. They look nice IMO anyways. Just drop it and space it out.

I agree and it is the very reason I didn't sell mine. I had a nice guy who was buying mine and I had a set of bbs lm wheels all lined up for 850 cash new but I just could do it. The stock rims although some have had issues are still stock and pass a much stricter process evaluation then reps... I had to stay with the 230's ... Put 10mm spacers on all 4 and now saving for a drop on eibachs or go al the way with h&r sport or race.....

I have a 12f and 15r spacers with no issues. If money is not an issue, go for coilevers or atleast a cup kit. Saves you time and money in the future for shocks replacement.
