    New rims which ones should I go with?

    I gotta replace my Lexani LX-6 with new rims and I've narrowed my choices down to these two wheels.

    I love the look of the R-six but I can't seem to decide between that and the LX-9, what do you guys think:

    Option 1 - Lexani R-Six - 24x10








    Option 2 - Lexani LX-9 Chrome with black inserts 24x10

    Re: New rims which ones should I go with?

    I know it's been a hard choice for me. I normally like a big lip on my wheels, all my previous rims had them. but I always seem to gravitate to the wheels with fewer spokes that's why I'm hesitating on option 2.

    2... I hate center caps... Even though my Dub Mambas have center caps.

    Got a photo of what you have now? From these 2...I would say #1 as it flows better with the body. On these Esky's...not digging the deep dish style wheel.

    2 - like the lip and no center caps. Not sure about the black inserts though.

    Re: New rims which ones should I go with?

    @gabe8496, here are some pictures of my current rims:





    I had to take these wheels off a few weeks ago since a car hit my rear driver side wheel and damaged the wheel. I tried replacing the one rim but Lexani no longer makes them. So now I have to purchase a brand new set.

    Option 1. It is a cleaner look. These things are so boxy and square and dished wheels, IMHO, need curves on the body to look good.
