It's just the picture of the wheel.. Look at the customer photos and choose which one looks best to you.

Unfortunately both of them are gonna be a couple shades darker than OEM wheels. I have 2 OEM and two aftermarket. I wanna say that AM has the darker shade compared to LRS but don't quote me on that

I believe that's the company that LRS gets its wheels from. I ordered my wheels from LRS and they came in Wheel Replica boxes

That's the company I'm leaning towards. I was told that my stock center cap will work also

Got a great deal on my staggered Bullits from oewheels.com. I was hesitant as they are a smaller company. At the time a couple years back got them with tires, mounted, and balanced for 950 out the door. But the ones your ordered will look great!

Do your fronts lip out at all on the Sumis? My 265 Nitto 555s lip out on my 17x9s up front and I hate it. 265/40/17.

Hmm I don't believe they do, I'll check ASAP when I'm home and get back to you, pretty sure if they did I would have noticed it by now lol

Ugh, I like flush sidewalls. Not the "hella flush" (hella retarded) ricer style but like a 245/255 on a 9" wide rim and maybe even a 235/45 on a 8" rim.

My 275's look a little big for my 18x9's also. The pic was taken after an autox so I could examine how much they are rolling in extreme conditions. Next time I'll probably go with 265's or 255's.

I'm just thinking of a radial set for a car setup to go like a raped ape in a straight line. I don't want to be rolling around on fats/skinnies 60 miles a day if I DD it in nice weather but I'd like to get a setup relatively close to that with a 45 sidewall out back and maybe even a 50 up front. 235/50/17 on a 8" wide up front and 285/45/17 out back on a 10" wide.

I thought they would bother me more, but the wheels themselves look so much better than OEM that I don't mind. At least I feel the LMR center caps look better than the American muscle ones that say American Muscle on them.
