    Are you going for genuine BBS or the ebay reps?

    I had 19" LM reps on mine (regular silver). They looked cool, but definitely go for 19's, as 18" LM's look ber-small.

    I dunno, mine looked fine, but were about 3 months old when I sold them.

    Have to agree my best mate had a set of 19" took about 2 months for them to start lifting around the edge.

    The only thing with lms is it seems every tom dick and harry with a vag has them.

    As for the rep alloys,heard alot of bad storys about the buckling and even cracking as the alloy is soft so if you looking to get a set id defo look for genuine alloys
