      I know this may seem like an odd question to ask but has anybody put wheels with chrome lip/deep dish type setup on their R's yet? If so i would love to see some pictures of your setup or setups you have found. In the searches i have done I have found a total of maybe 3 or 4 cars that have said type of wheels.

      On these high positive offset cars your not going to get much lip unless you go wide body kit.

      So for lack of better terms flush type rims are it, would the bbs lm's fit? I know the LM's have a fairly small chrome lip to them.

      What are the measurements for bbs lm's? That would be the rough size of lip I would be looking for.

      any other like wheels that you know of that look just like that? any 3 piece wheels? I know they are going to be more expensive.

      2 piece > 3 piece IMO. 2 Piece are stronger FYI.

      I am good either way, 2 piece or 3 piece. Just not monoblock type, the only wheels I would do for monoblock type are the OZ Ultraleggeras/ superturismos which I know are flush and I would probably use the monoblocks for winter if you know what I mean.
