Talked to my wheel and tire guy yesterday. The Lexani LSS 11 I originally ordered are on severe back order and no ETA is known. That's straight from Lexani/Assanti rep. They offered me the Lexani LX 14 instead, for same price. Below are links to the styles. Let me know what u guys think... I kinda don't mind the LX14's

+1 Keep searching. I don't like either one of those. If it has to be one of the above you have to go with the one you like the best.

I don't like the full rim look. Im still a fan of a nice lip on the rim. The full look like vossen to me is for like a Lexus IS-F or a tuner car. I really like some of the Assanti styles, but not paying Assanti money. Appreciate the input tho fellas

You guys need to go research wheels there are so many new companies with some sick styles and to be honest I rather pick a wheel that no one has then jumping on a pair of these forgiatos asanti giovanni lexani gianelle etc etc

Your right 100% on there being so many other different styles. I checked multiple designers. I had 6months to decide. It came down to Lexani or CEC Wheels for me. In the end CEC was the better quality wheel, but the pricing I got from Lexani was what fits my budget, not to mention the style I like.

Sorry, 1bad is correct, cheesy. Chrome? Too Overdone in my opinion. I loved my 128s personally. But I want my BMW to look like a BMW, not something cheaped out by bad wheels.

Says the guy who puts same rims on 2 different cars. Vossens make me think of a 40 old white guy who thinks 40 is the new 20. JMO:dunno: "I'm still cool..."

Check out MRR or EXE wheels. They look good and probably cost as much as the wheels you posted. Links below.

EXE has some pretty decent wheels, and they are local! Always willing to support my 562 businesses. I'll call my wheel man tomm. Thanks for positive input my man.

Black might be interesting. I've just always gone for the standard "color" or gunmetal. But that's a preference obviously. I am probably more boring than most of you on the forum. I don't get too crazy with the mods. Even a full body kit would bug me.

Probably so, I would hope so. If thats what he likes. I'm more of a hot rod and muscle car enthusiast. At 27 probably owned and sold 2x as many rods. Kinda cool working on a luxury euro. Same school of thought in the rodder world. Most older guys prefer shiny fiberglass rods, or fully restored. I prefer the rat rod look and build that way.:thumbup:

Here is a truck I just picked up. Well a buddy and I did. Got it for 1800 out of Idaho. My buddies warehouse in background, with projects he's done. Planning on dropping a 350, Holley carb, and a Muncie tranny. It'll have plenty of juice.
