HRE P40's versus BBS LM vs BBS CH

Opinions please. I like them all but think the HRE's in 20's look the nicest on the M3. I have an Alpine white and prefer the brushed nickel look. I don't really like the all black rims.. Lets have some input and opinions...

I've had the last 2 so I'm biased to tell... All 3 are very nice wheels and will look fantatisc on your car. If you want 20's, CH does not have in that size but you can opt for the new model they have which is very similar (believe they call CH-R). It all depends on your budget as well. LM's will cost u more than the other 2 but looks the best imo.

LM > P40 > CH

Not sure how heavy the LM's are but the CH's are too heavy IMO but at least they're cheap.

The more I look at LMs and LM-Rs on on our cars the more I think it looks dated.
I was in the air between P40s and LM-Rs and I chose P40s..
One thing for me though was I wanted 19s and the step lip design just makes the wheel look tiny.

I am kind of leaning the way of the P40's. I find that when I see pictures of the BBS LM's in 19's they look small as compared to the 19" P40's. Is it the deep lip on the LM's that are creating that illusion. 20" P40's looking huge in comparison. I don't plan on lowering the car....

I also think the LMs look dated. The LM-Rs are a diff story.

It seems your mind is made up. Get the P40s. But since you have AW, I would consider a darker color. I know you don't like black, but get it anyway.

Just depends if you want a quality wheel (LM) vs. a bling wheel (P40) or anchors. (CH).
