Help a Brother Pick Wheels!

I'm shopping for wheels. I am torn about what to get. Right now the front-runner is 20" HRE P40s in black (see doba_s' car). However, it seems like everyone and their mother is getting these wheels.

There's another AW E92 in town and the bastard has the same wheels as me, so I've got to get something else.

What about BBS RGRs? Hmm...

Shoot me your ideas! Thanks in advance!

Might want to take a look at the RAC monolite group buy. I think the GB closes on 6/26 so you still have time. You certainly won't see these wheels on many other cars.

If you are going to go with a CSL/mesh style wheels, I would suggest the Velocity Motoring wheels sold by EAS. They look good, and have a very nice price tag.

I think that ISFail was referring to the tire cost of 20" over 18". Of course, maybe that is just my need to find logic where none exists .

+1 to the CSL reps if you want a wheel that looks good and won't break the bank. It is a popular wheel though.

I love the G2s - but every time I think about buying a set I think of a buddies Integra from high school...

What's the name of the RD Sport wheel?
