BOTH FTW! Can't go wrong with either setup. I'm always thinking of selling my set and with LMs. Then I realize my LM-R looks awesome too...

EDIT: Now I might post them for sale now...

I see a lot of LMs than LM-Rs on the road in socal. So to be different, I pick LM-R. Both look sexy.

I like both, but which looks better depends on the variables (..car color/type, wheel size, wheel color, offset, etc.). I've seen both wheels look very nice on certain cars, and look terrible on other cars.

Prefer the LM-Rs but the LMs will always remain a classic.

LM-R, only if they are on 20"s

They look too small if they're 19"s
