LM REPS, Can't decide on what's a good deal, Pls Help!

I have a Silver BMW 330ci & I am about to purchase my first set of wheels & tires. Just to make sure I get the right deal, I would love opinions, tips, advice or whatever 2 cents you can put in.

After searching far and wide I found these options.

Sorry if this post is a little long, but if you could tell me what you think is a good deal or if I came across generic rims, or whats just a better rim & tire deal for a a New Enthusied E46 Owner, it'd be much appreciated. Thanks

Take a look at the center of all the wheel, where the lugnuts go in

Notice how on a couple of the examples you posted the PCD is bigger than the opening in the center causing the lugnut holes to go past the main circle in the middle

looks ok in pictures, but looks super awkward in person...you might wanna reconsider

It's hard to explain but it's a major detail

If I didn't explain well enough let me know and I'll do a quick chop letting you know exactly what i'm talking about

I'm mainly referring to the third picture you posted.

Linea Corse are bad replicas. They didn't engineer their rear wheels very well. The real BBS LM's have a larger mesh area in the rear wheels. Go for Chikara LS1 wheels... They're the best replicas I have ever seen.
