I like both, but I wanted the machined & gunmetal finish over any of the 818 finishes.

I went with the TSW's. If you are looking to have some concavity then look at the LC's as the TSW's are flat faced. As well, you might not like the offsets of the TSW's depending on what size of rim you go with so spacers are now in the equation. I don't know if it makes a difference in quality or if it's just hype, but the TSW's are Rotary Forged making them lighter and stronger than most cast wheels. I've hit some pretty big potholes with mine and I can't believe they are still rolling.

Here's a quick pic of my car with the matt gunmetal finish in a 19 by 8.5 all around with 225/35/19 Hankook 's the offsets are weak at 45

Default Silver or Machined

Both would look good but I like a silver or machined finish on black cars.

Linea Corse LC818 isn't a rep of anything and came out before that TSW if i'm not mistaken

Also, the TSW is not a concave wheel, so it really depends on the look you're going for

LC818 is the better looking wheel. When I was running it on my car (first in black, then in smoked chrome), I was receiving compliments nonstop.

Check out my Garage for pics of the wheel on a black car.

When I bought my car the previous owner installed the 18x8.5 and 18x10 TSW's in bronze and they stood out so much on my black 250! Eventually I curbed em, started drinking one night got bored and painted them fluorescent green.. pretty much "ninja turtle" green haha
