I can't decide which set of rims I want!

Choice No. 1:

These are 17in replica's of Bmw rim Style 48
Don't exactly look like what they're replicating (but that could be just the pic angle)
They have have a bigger dish than Choice No. 2
They cost $695 a set, and I don't think that includes shipping

Choice No. 2

These are 18in replica's of Bmw rim Style 48
Looks exactly like what they're replicating,
-That includes the dish size
Costs $599 for a set, including shipping
-I might have to roll my fenders for them to fit?...how much does that cost?


I guess it comes down to what looks better, a deeper dish or an extra inch of rim?
What do you guys think?


Oh yea, and thanks to Jshearer and Rooz for helping me find them in the first place!

Nope, my car isn't lowered, does that mean that if I do get the second set, and decide to lower my car, I would have to roll my fenders?

I think I just want to get a suspension setup that gives my car a nice stance without being slammed to the ground, maybe an inch or so drop...

Thanx for the opinions guys, I think the 2nd set is the one for me =D.

you still probably be ok with a modest drop and those 18's. The size tire you get with them will be the difference

I looked into getting the VB-1 from JLevi about a month ago. Apparently they are backordered from velocity motoring. He said they will probably be coming in sometime in late June. I have a set of Bilsteins with H&R sport springs on. I may still get these rims. I'll let everyone know if I have a fitment problem then.
