someone on this site has a set of maya and they are beautiful. forgot who. and i saw a 5 series the other day with a set of lowenharts and a body kit and i literally think i drooled
you are absolutely right, but why pay so much for ugly rims?? what s the price for 19" lowenhart or maya rim?? 6, 7 thousand a set? forged wheels by hre are about 5k, looks better and are custom to your order. so you look at lowenhart and maya and compare the style that hre have.

nah. im sure most lowenharts and mayas are the same 5k. i think the guy on this board with the mayas paid like 4,600 or something like that. but dont quote me.
and i personally, and im sure am not the only one that LOVE the way both maya and lowenhart look. so to call them ugly is sorta silly.
but HRE are very nice. i knew a kid with a set on his is300. they were way sweet

i think a lot of these wheels make the car look much cheaper than the stock wheels.

Can you define "Nicest?"

Style is so totally subjective that your going to be the only one who can define "Nicest" if looks are what your after. Pick what you want and be happy.

If by "Nicest" you mean wheels that are technically well manufactured, strong, lightweight, rebuildable in the event that they get bent, I think Fikse is turning out the best technical wheels. My race car wore those and they were perfect. You also get them built to spec, so they fit perfectly.

HRE wheels are my favorite. But for nice ones you are going to pay more than $2500.

I like the 840R, but they are between $1400-$1700 per wheel depending on the size. (18 or 19 inch).

I have been in love with HRE wheels since I saw them on a Ferrari once.

When you are spending close to $10K on wheels and tires, you probably are not worried about how much they cost...
