Why would you switch from one wheel to another, to esscentially have the same wheel? The finish is different, but that is about it. For less money than you would lose out on, you could have 360 Forged re-finish your wheels. Here comes the flames about 360 now...

You are right! Great idea. I have nothing against 360. Love their wheels and great people.

(PLEEEASE let's stay on topic)

I might just re-finish the lip, in other words lose the chrome lip look.

Indeed they are essentially they are the same wheel but there are subtle difference to the wheel which makes the BBS unique.

Maybe it's just me, but those BBS wheels are ass ugly. Do they have some other redeeming quality like ultra light weight or something? I just don't see the appeal. The 360s are way better looking.

LM-R's plus then you don't have to deal with 360's customer service

+1

The BBS wheels are far over rated - they may be the mutt's nuts for performance (or for some other reason, unbeknownst to me), but the vast majority of buyers will be purchasing for looks, methinks, and here, the 360s the more attractive option..... just IMHO.

Keep the 360's!! LMR's are sick but those mesh 8's are beautiful (Regardless of all that 360 drama). Just refinish them if your bored of them already.

If not, buy the LMR's or HRE's and keep the 360s so when you get bored of them you can switch back. I'll hold your mesh 8's for you if you want lol

The Mesh 8's are absolutely gorgeous wheels, but they seem more at home on a Porsche. There is something about the LM-R that just looks right on the M3!

Give the guys at GT Motoring a call if you are interested in finding out more about the LM-R.
