Hey Guys,
I sold my HRE 441R and Im gonna get some new rims for spring for my M3. They will be 19" of coarse. I narrowed it down to either HRE 447R in Brushed Aluminum or BBS RS-GT in silver. In terms of quality, weight, and strength, the BBS are better. So now I need to just decide which way to go, any suggestions. They are both rare, its almost impossible to get RS-GT in silver here but i can get them. Thanks.

Hmmmmmm........that is a tough choice, I would always try to get the rim that is better in performance & strength considering there is so many F***ing potholes, go for the BBS *th-up*

LMs are sweet too. RS-GTs are much more rare than LMs. To be honest, I was not all that impressed with my HREs either, especially for the price. BBS are way better rims. But the HREs look good. Very pimpin.

RS-GT have a nice flat lip, unlike LMs. LMs have a step lip.

you should just do what you want, we can say that the rims are crap and you would still buy them, no matter what it's your choice not ours

You can have a max of 4inches in the back on iforged and 3 for the HREs. Im not big on Iforged rims though. They have some quality and customer service issues still. If the lip gets to big, it looks kinda strange.

Its actually called Diamond Black, I think silver would look better becasue dark wheels on a dark colour is just ok. I thnk the silver woulld look bettter. If I had a silver, white or red car I would be all over the diamond finish or even black.

Mitch, those are Iforge rims. Im not really down with them, have heard a lot of horror stories.

Wasabi, those are 840R, a little to $$$ for my blood but they are sweet. They so freakin $$$$.

OEM CSL rims are hot too, I can get set of those too. Super light, and they are actually made by BBS.

Thanks for the input guys, Im decided to go with the RS-GT is diamond silver. They are higher quality rim than HRE for less $$$. Plus I was not impressed with my last HREs so I don't think I want another set of their rims.

Thanks Mitch.

I got them from Rennsport out in California, I get all my stuff from there. They are 19x8.5 and 19x9.5. They gave me a special on them so they were just over $3000USD, that is not including tires. Im getting Michelin Pilot Sport also from them.
