Due to a series very unusual and unforeseen circumstances, my car hasn't had wheels on it since July 21. I am looking for 19" sets only. Preferably with tires and preferably local so I can check them out before buying.

Budget is $2000 without tires; $2500 with tires give or take a few pesos for something amazing. I am supposed to see a set of LM's on Monday, but I want to set something up as a back up, or maybe something better than LM's (if such a thing exists).

Thanks,
Allen

Allen,

What is your criteria aside from them being 19 inches in diameter? Preferred width? Style? Stepped or reverse lip? mult-ipiece vs monoblock?

Thanks, Chuck...I should have mentioned those things. I want tame widths (9.5 or less front, 10 or less rear), I don't want to have to run a stretch, but I don't mind a low offset front because I do like the flush look. I like a lip (whether it is step or not). No preference as to monoblock or multi-piece, I like wheels from both sides of that spectrum. I am open to different styles...I would love mesh wheels, but I also loved my Dinans.

BBS LM's are what I really want, and hopefully that will work out on Monday, but I have to have a back up just in case. I don't know how much longer I can go without driving my car. I did a bunch of maintenance with theshafro's help, so I'd love to see how much performance has improved...we did a full vanos job, UUC control arm bushings, and a thorough coolant flush.

RDSport RS2:
19x9.5+32
19x10.5+20

May not fit your criteria for sizes and is a little beyond your specified budget @ $2500

Chuck, those are awesome, but would require something like a 20mm spacer up front to be flush. Are those yours? Do you know if they are bored to fit an e39? I really like those.

They are not mine but they are available. You could always resize them to your specs as well to lower the offset of the fronts.
I can give you more info if you are genuinely interested.

Okay, Chuck. If the LM's don't work out, I'll be in touch. So far these are first back up plan. They look amazing.
