E90: Lip or Concavement?

What do most of you guys go for?

HRE p40, p40l, Advan rs, BBS CH-R, vossen vvs-cv1 etc

vs.

HRE 540, 590, BBS LM, vossen vf099, etc.....

I personally like the look of deep lip on BMWs.

Lip.

More importantly, a deep two step lip.

I have a deep lip on mine but I have to say that concave appeals to me also.. I guess you always want what you dont have

Cant go wrong with either...

Or you could do something inbetween. Meaning a slight concave where you still have lip past the edge of the center forgings spokes.

I'm not a big lip guy, but they can look awesome if done right. they look too street-racer / fast-and-furious to me most of the time. I prefer the more understated look of monoblock wheels.

Not a fan of these wheels at all. Identity crisis. Not a fan of the spokes either. All in all I just hate those wheels. No offense to each his own!

Shallow Concave with a lip! I like because the concave doesn't completely cover the lip like on a lot of "concave" wheels out there now.
