Exclamation Wheel Poll: Need your opinions!

I'm currently torn between two sets of wheels again and in dire need of your help. It's between xxr526 & rpm505... please don't tell me to save up for volks or works My car is currently '92 SC stock body. Future body upgrades are '97 sides and rear.

I can get the xxr's in a hypersilver/chrome finish with a single bolt pattern. Not the dual lug pattern that xxr offers. Specs: 18x9 +25 over 2.5 lip / 18x10.5 +20 4.25 lip. The only problem is that the lip is chrome, but the deep dish is hard to ignore. Picture is photoshopped by Seize for reference.

Next, is the rpm's in hypersilver finish. 19x8.5 +20 about 2.5 lip / 19x9.5 +30 about 3.5 lip. The only minor problem are tires will be expensive. Picture is blisiono's car for reference.

They both look good, but I would go with the XXR's if they look exactly like the ones in the first pic.

xxr's imo. 18's compliment our cars nicely and tires arent as expensive

The offsets/width combo of these two wheels are extremely different. I would pick the fitment of the xxr or the look of the rpm. I guess it depends on what's more important to you

Tough choice man. They will both look good though.
