I would keep the LM-r all day. FI imo def not worth the money. It will cost you 3+ K to swap, no chance id do that.

I think the LM-r look awesome on your car.

FI's all the way. Lighter, stronger, more exclusive. So many people have LM-R's. Yes they are sick wheels but FI's are the better wheel overall in my opinion. I personally like the look of them better than LM-R's too. But you cant go wrong with either

FIs, wow, they are on a different level. the blue + yellow, if you the option to get FIs, I would say do it, not many have these wheels, whereas the BBS LMs, have been around for years.
