Im an LM tart and they look the nuts on pretty much any car. Scream class and tuffness, would suit your 33 down to the ground.

Wow thats a hard choice mate. My personal 2 favs! Instead of "other" you shoulda put Both

I think id end up choosing LMGT4s tho. Keep the Nissan and Nismo together.

Yeah, tough choice. Both look good. Although on one hand, cleaning those BBMs is going to be a b*tch. But, the BBS do add a sense of class to the car, while the LMGT4s are more subtle sporty (being forged and made by Rays, they are up to the task). One point I've noticed on the LMGT4s is however - if you go for 19 inch size, the spokes are straight - ie not dished as they are in the 17 and 18 inch sizes. If that matters to you.

hard choice, nevertheless I reckon Nismo ones suit the car slightly better, however on cars which are lowered the BBS ones look better... so 50/50 mate..

BBS lm's if it's an r33

LMGT4's if it's an r34

Although the bronze LMGT4's do look nice on the one above! Hard decision but I don't think you can go wrong either way.

Go 18s
19s are too look at me and are out of balance on a 33.

I Love bbs LM's. But now when i have my own bbs, i would suggest lmgt to be different, cause there is lot setups with bbs.. maybe is with lmgt too but i havent seen so many. Or like matty said, TE37 would be best
