FI or LM-Rs

Currently running a BBS FI (19") thinking of swapping to a BBS LM-R Amuse off set (20") what do you guys think?

I prefer the look of the LM-Rs, but the FIs seem more rare if that's a concern.

I'd take either one over the Volks though

I will say when I had my 20" LM's they were insane looking. With a drop the car looked so good.

FI are just as great looking but they are also very functional. They are prob the best all around wheel you can get IMO

Jimmy, your input is always helpful. I'm assuming the LM-Rs will give me more of a bling bling look which I kinda want to do lol. The FI is a great very well balanced all around wheel but I think it's time for a change.

Well the LM-r and LM are classics and never will look dated. They always looks stunning. I think the LM-R will look boss on your car bro. The step lip

Have you entertained the thought of E88's? Silver ones would look so clean on your ride, just saying .

Can't go wrong either way. If you're going to be on the track, keep the FIs. If you are going for more show, you gotta go with the 20" LM-R's with the lip!

i think that you should keep the FI's, i mean a lot of people have LM-R's but its not like everyday that you see FI's especially on such a stunning whip like yours

but either way whatever new setup you do choose, your car will still be one of my faves!

I personally like the FIs. I've never seen FIs on a BMW, but LM and LM-Rs are popular.

It's kind of like the patek philippe of wheels. They aren't the most in your face, but people who know what they are know they are top of the line, and very expensive.

I absolutely love LMR's with agressive offset. I say go for it but if you can keep the FI's. As for performance: that shouldn't be affected too much since you have that nice SC lol.
