Cool, nice wheel indeed. HRE's here, 22lbs rear also, et20. Provides a nice aggressive appearance w/stock sized tires. Upsized PSS's definitely affected the feel of shifts on my DCT. Felt sluggish compared to stock size PSS's and that's just in normal driving. Maybe 6mt gearing would have less effect, dunno...just my experience on my car.
