I was thinking the same thing. I was torn between purchasing new wheels with big lips or just flush. I ended up picking up the Volk TE37, has somewhat of a concave spoke design.
I been looking for some nice wheels for my nsx and I am noticing the same thing. Also I've been seeing that gunmetal or hyper black or other matted finish is definately the rage. Chrome and polish seems to be going out. just my .02
I am in process of installing of a sorcery widebody, rear only. I am getting kinda tired of the "deep dish" look. Would a concave flush wide rear rim look odd? Like I said I am seeing alot of these "flush-concave style wheels, especially on prototypes. Any input would be great....thks:smile:
Adavn has a nice choice of concave flush wheels. I still like a phat lip though. I have no problem with either.I am in process of installing of a sorcery widebody, rear only.

Big lips come with big risks. Manufacturers probably don't want to keep replacing bent rims all the time. I prefer big lips for the aggressive stance alone. Here's my 5" lip...
generally wide-lipped wheels are weaker.
All depends on the make of the wheel. THere are now tons of companies producing a one piece wheel that "looks" like a three piece. Great for us since not all of us wants to pay huge $$ for that look...
I love that porsche look, I think it follows the lines of the widebody stance as you go from the back to the front, the big lip falls into place perfectly.
In regards to rim strength, again depends on how its made, forged three piece are probably the strongest out there- but again most expensive, check out most high end wheel websites, they usually have an explanation of their wheel making process...
Can you elaborate on this? What big risks are involved?
I don't understand this. Even wheels with "no lip" has a lip... it's just on the other side of the face of the wheel. Do you mean that the wider the wheels is, the weaker it is? Even so, why would wide mean weak?
What am I missing? I've never heard of a big lip being bad in any way other than subjective opinions on aesthetics. I'd like to hear more regarding this.
