Depends on the rims in question and the style you are going for. Old school euro, BBS RS, new school euro, BBS LM or HRE 540, depending on the car of course.

BBS all the way...some HRE look amazing, but they tend to have problems.

I'd stick with BBS or OZ if you want a good quality wheel. Champion or CCW I have found to be the only other companies on-par in terms of quality.

HRE's are money. When you go 19 or bigger, they are quite expensive

IMO, having had both brands. Its an insult to compare BBS to HRE.
HRE rims just look good IMO, and thats it.
BBS looks good and its built well.

BBS rims look just as good as HREs. Plus, you don't need to polish the lip on BBS like HREs every time you wash the car since they get dull so easily.

BBS's look amazing. But what makes an HRE more appealing for show (this is my take on it) is the price tag. A bawler ass set of HRE wheels can run you over 9-10 G's easy.

I have heard mix reviews about them too.
iForge, similar to HRE, they have horrible customer service.
