BBS LM-R is my fav look right now. The titanium bolts are a nice touch.

Aftermarket wheels try to emulate ZCP CSL wheels, I prefer those.

To be fair, the ZCP wheels are very much a spin off of the BBS RG-R (unsurprisingly, since the are made by BBS, and the RG-R came out first).



vs



The RG-Rs are just significantly stronger, significantly lighter, available in sizes other than 19" (though also 19"), available in colors other than silver (though also silver), and have a lip :P

What coils are you swapping springs on? What spring rates?


As for wheels:

NT03 look good rolling at the track



But Volk ZE40 for the street





Also at the track too I guess

I think I've decided on 350/750. I'd put them on my current PSS9's temporarily till I can have FCM built a separate set of dampers and swap them over. I've been telling myself I want I get rid of my current wheels asap since I bought the car and just keep putting in on the back burner due to suspension limitations not allowing me to run a 10" wheel up front.
