BBS LM's,LM-R's, or e88's for Melbourne Red

Hey guys,
I need some opinions. I'm trying to decide between some rims. My choices are in the poll above. I think they all would look great, but I'm not sure how they'd look on my car with how my car looks. I'll be keeping my TE37sl's for the winter/track. Any suggestions are welcome.

Here's a few pictures of my car to help you decide:






Thanks,
Matt

20" LM's I have had so many rims and these still are my favorite on any car.

how do you think the diamond silver would look with my car (with so many dark accents)? I'm kind of leaning towards diamond black because of this, but I really like diamond silver on other cars more.

I think the silver LM like I have but with the Red center cap would be really nice. I believe I saw one at MFEST but they were 19" and it looked great. The 20" IMO look a lot better just not as sturdy as the 19 which is a given.

I thought I'd offer up these links. Really, you cannot go wrong with LM's or LM-R's in 20".

LM or LM-R really, no matter how many times I see these wheels on an M3, I am always in love with them.

thanks everyone for the advice. The poll is definitely not helping though. Almost every option is tied right now

I'm leaning towards LM's/LM-R's in diamond black with black caps. What do you think?

LM-R silver FTW on your color! You can't go wrong with LMs. Just get the gloss black FIs!

You can't go wrong there, but my preference would be silver on a MR car. It is going to look good no matter what finish you get.

I think LM or LMR with the dbk finish are a bit better - only because you have a lot of dark parts on the car, and the silver finish might be too bright. also, I got my LM dbk's with Cf center caps, you might want those....although red caps on a red car might be better

That's definitely what I'm thinking. If I didn't have the OSS blacked out headlights and side gills I'd probably get silver but I think diamond black would be best.

even though you have/had LM-R's in diamond black? I'm thinking that the diamond black would look better with my dark accents, but do you think diamond black looks much worse than all sliver? I haven't seen them in person to be honest.

I still have my LM-R's in Diamond Black. But on your color, I would go with the contrast of the silver LM-R's but the red cap is a must.
