yeah, just go with what you like, in the end, it's your car.

one advantage with the Work wheels is that you can play around with the offsets and use different disks to gain the biggest possible lip for our car. That's the reason I would buy work wheels over LC. and i believe that LC is a 1 piece cast wheel.

I like the wheels. The price really makes them attractive.

Is the only difference between these and t1s's the face width of the lip?

Buy what you like and what fits your budget. You basically need to look at the facts here. IMO, both wheels look great. I like the T1's, and the fact that the lip is shinier. I also like the fact that you can order different offsets and disks to personalize it for your specific application. But, if you're not overly concerned about the shiny lip, and if the specs are ok for your application, it really depends if you want to spend almost $1k more for a "JDM" wheel. In the end, they'll all roll down the street the same way, the only difference will be that you're pocket will be lighter......but at least you can say that you got JDM wheels! LOL

BTW, I ran (3) sets of Rota's on my WRX wagon and had 0 issues with them. Yeah, they were replicas of Advan's and Volks......it didn't matter to me. I received tons of compliments on the looks and the fact that I spent half the $$$ than the real deals. If it's your car, do what you like.

seems like spacers are needed for these...whats the best size and brand to go with? maybe less stress on the car if purchasing the works t1s at the correct offset?
