I'm having a bit of dilemma, I'm at a crossroads on wheel selection for the convertible...

Option A:

Do 5 lug swap (bonus of getting m3 brakes)
Use staggered style 5 wheels 17x8, 17x9
lots of work, extra $1000

Look something like this but with much higher polish. (not my convertible)

Option B:

Don't do 5 lug swap
Use 17x8 Rial Nogaro Wheels (similar to ASA ar1)
no work

AR1's on a convertible (not my convertible)

Rial Nogaro's

From a purely aesthetics perspective, which wheel to go with?

Style 5 or Kopi's.

No Kopis for me. Just trying to narrow down between the style 5's and the Rial Nogaros.

Style 5's match the car the best

The guy from r3v won't ship, or allow a shipper to pack and pickup. So, no... not from him.

well if you are choosing between the two, style 5 looks wayyy better.

if those are the only two options I would say go style 5's for sure but I think you should just get some bbs rs's or a set of borbet's it would probably end up costing you around the same thing with a lot less work.

The rims look great and the M3 brakes are icing on the cake.

No offence but the AR1's and Nogaros look horrible. Definetly go with the style 5's or try finding some BBS RS's. Theres a guy on e30tech selling some 16's BBS RS in mint condition asking 2400 i think.
