Question F-SPORT VS VMR: Which Would You Choose?

What do you guys think i should get for this summer?

The VRM V710 will be new with new hankook v12 tires (235/265) for $2200

The Lexus F sport rims will be used with 60% used 225 michelin pilot in the front, and new 265 pilot sport in the rear for $2000

Both are 19 inches. Note, pictures are for illustrations only.

Kinda off topic but with $2200, you can pick up a set of authentic 3 piece wheels! I would do that LOL, but up to you.

First choice look nicer. F Sport is probably a better quality wheel.

1st choice, it looks so much like the TSW Nurburgring I have lol.

However, i think $2200 is asking too much.

First choice, agreed with FSportIS! $2200 is a little too much
