YOUR OPINION COUNTS! New project M with step lip or concaves?

Ok guys we may be starting a new project car. A brand new 1M. Question is this. What do you guys want to see or prefer?



1M on step lip flat forging wheels?

OR

1M on light concave forging wheels?




We'd love to know your opinion and preference! Thanks guys

Not sure if itll be tracked, but highly doubt it. The 1 series gets small lips, so deep concaves aren't possible.

If it's going to be a show car, then you have to go with step lips. That looks amazing when coupled with a BBK.

And this is coming from someone who just bough concaves for the track.

I'm personally a huge fan of step lips. I just got a set of step liped ADV1's for "show" and in the future I plan to get a set of track wheels and tires.

One piece concave. No 20s please, try to keep 19s for the 1er. Lowest offset possible to make it look like a bulldog! M3 fitments shouldn't be a problem for this car as it already has 359m

Our concaves are 3 piece forged, no 1 piece cast stuff here...
