I8ABMR & erik535353 Thanks for the pics guys you both just made my decision
even tougher Now I'm even more confused because both your cars look freaking amazing and makes it harder to pull the trigger.

Erik535353 did you have to run spacers to fit the front? I was told the 19" MRR clear the BBK but not the 20"

I went with MRR GT1 silver, 20x8.5 F and 20x10 R. Tire size is 245-35 and 270-30, respectively. Yes, MRRs don't have the quality or prestige as Work or HRE, but they don't have the high price tag either. I've had them on for almost 40K miles and have not had one issue with them...no bending, no wobbles, no leaks...nothing. I live in Cali so that's saying something because our roads here are crap. In the end I'm a happy camper. To me they look great, and I didn't have to fork over $5K+ just for the wheels.

I agree on the Snettertons. Also don't like the fake bolts on the MRR.

Plus I think the silver finish is much more elegant than Chrome.

My vote is TSW Snerrertons for two reason:
1. No fake bolts, no bolts whatsoever...
2. Silver, no chrome for me.

Mind to share your experience? I owned a TSW before and a Lumarai now I have no problem with TSW wheels.

Man its been months since I have been on Club Lex. 5mm spacers clear it perfect. Also brings the wheel slightly flusher to the fender.

I honestly think you cant go wrong with either. Both companies have been around for decades

id say go with the mrr they are a clean looking wheel, honestly not a big fan of the TSW wheels from what i have seen they start looking dull very quick.

like your look. I think I'm gonna shop for 20" using your rim size. What backspacing (front & rear) did you have to go with? Also how is the ride, any problem with rubbing? I would like to travel a bit with the family. Thanks
