BBS Fi (18 or 19) or BBS E88 (18 or 19) which to choose?

So looking at some wheels for the new year.

I guess, my first question is stick with 18" or move up to 19"?

secondly, what set? BBS Fi (diamond black finish) or BBS E88 (silver)

thanks for your time and help.

*alos going to be doing suspension/coilover, will post in appropriate section.

BBS doesn't show a fitment of the FI for Z4M What size/offset were you thinking?

Xmetal, one of the online vendors mentioned that fitment would not be a problem, although now that I think of it, it was in regards to the japan version of the Fi, which they call the Ri-d.

anyways, what are everyones thoughts on size? 18 or 19?

Since you are looking for a street wheel setup only, go with the FI. The E88 are track wheels, barrels and lips are thinner than the LM series to save weight and they won't like potholes... And this is valid with either magnesium or aluminum centers.

You can get BBS LM or LM-R if you like 3 pcs wheels. It will work better for your need.
