Cant go wrong with any BBS wheels. The LM's and LM-R's are some of the best looking and highest quality wheels out there.
I would put E88's on a GT3 or a more dedicated track car.
Ive heard of the E88's having leak problems and require an extra layer of silicone beading on the inside barrel.

Personally id go with LM-R's.
Wouldn't go over anything bigger then 19's.

LM's FTW. That's what I'd have if I had the spare cash for BBS. In silver, classy.

Any opinions on these vs. a set of 19" HRE P40SC or P43SC's?

LMs ftw! I'm running LM DBK with the red centercaps, but I do have the black caps with the silver logo that I have been planning on putting on.

I would stick with 19's. Since that is the case.... LM's are your best option. LMR's are not available in anything wider than 10" in 19's. That's too narrow. I would get LM's in 19x9.5 front, 19x11 rear.

Awesome pictures! I think I'm definitely deciding between 20" BBS LM's in diamond black with red caps or 19" HRE P43sc's. Those pictures mad a big difference.

I understand your opinion, but I think LM's look much better in 20's on these cars.

Lol supercharger is $$$$ and I don't really like the price gouging that goes on around here for install prices. Also I'm not too sure that I want to completely void my engine warranty when my car has 1900 miles on it

The more I look at LM-R's there's something I don't like about them from certain angles. IMO if you don't see the spoke pockets and look at them straight on they can clock kind of strange (just my opinion though, and it is something minor, but if I'm spending $6000 on wheels I want to love them from every angle).

I think I'm going to do LM's in diamond black with red caps OR 19" HRE P43SC's

I'm still thinking about it, but right now in my life I have zero free time to cruise around, and my commute is all city and no highway with the max speed limit at 45mph. So N/A mods are good enough for now, I can barely exploit my car as it, so 100+ extra who for $9000+ isn't worth it to me right now. Maybe once my life gets a little less hectic I'll pull the trigger (maybe over this winter).

if you put it like that, the only wheel that you can love front every angle is volk te37 in mag blue!

I know what you mean about making sure you like them from every angle. That is the #1 reason why I don't have BBS FI's on my car. I haven't convinced myself I like their look at every angle (especially in silver). Having said that, you really cannot go wrong with LM's vs LM-R's. I do "love" my LM-R's from every angle. I think they would look sick on MR, personally, but bapesta's photo is one of the best ones out there. They look amazing on his amazing car. The FI's look good on it too.

I'm actually more of a fan of a 18x10.5 square set of formula silver TE37's.

Yea exactly. FI's do look a little strange from some angles, but those are also just over priced imo. There are wheels out there for our cars that are very similar in weight for 1/4 of the price. If they were like 15lbs a piece then they'd be worth it, but not at their current weight. They look amazing on bapesta's car, but I think my car is more on the aggressive side with all the black accents, that why I'm leaning more towards 20" LM's in diamond black.
