    First and second....but if have to choose one, I'll take the first for a classic look or the second if I'm after an updated look. Your call. Can't go wrong but definitely needs a drop to suit the wheels. KW V3?

    Any reason for not getting rims bigger than 20"?

    When choosing the ones with lips, pls make sure you specify the depth of the lips that you want. I didn't know when ordering mine. So, the lips on my rear wheels are not as deep as I would like it to be.

    Lip depth is only car's specs dependant, not up to how deep u like.

    A lot of factors to determind how deep the lip can be;

    1. Car Model
    2. Design of wheel
    3. Width of the wheel
    4. Offset
    5. Caliper width

    Stock calipers will be slimmer than BBK calipers, so the lip can be 1cm+ deeper......if the face of the wheel is 2mm away from the stock caliper, then upgrading to BBK later will be a problem as one must add spacers to clear it.

    If wheels are of perfect offset to the fender, then by adding spacers will push the wheel out....lagi big problem.....





    Ofcourse there are those Super Concave design wheels that can let you have super deep lips & still clears BBK width......

    2nd one, I feel it is more unique, like what ACS6 mentioned about updated look.

    U like it deep?
    Sorry for OT.

    “Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything - all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.”
    “And most important, have the courage to follow your heart & intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
