Just placed my order for some HRE P40SC's!!

Hot diggity damn are these some muthers expensive!! The finish is one off for M3. I think its been done on Aventador, but never on BMW. Not sure if this qualifies for teaser or not, but if I have to wait, you will too!!!

Def be posting pics along the way. Hopefully they'll be nice enough and send me a pic or two during production.

Like a kid in a candy store!!

Awesome, definitely some amazing looking wheels. I was very close to picking up some black P40SC's but decided on the GTS wheels due to the huge price difference. Mind telling how much they ran you? Did you get 19's or 20's?

I did just the exact opposite. I wore myself out looking for wheels, but couldn't 100% find the finish I wanted. I them bought ZCP's and a week later I found my dream wheel (which is what I've ordered) and my ZCP's are at the powder coaters "gettin did"!

I'd rather not post the price on here, but if you really want to know PM me and I can share. As you know, they aren't cheap.

I've been a HUGE HRE fan since the 90's and was like F it.... you live once... how many times can you go bankrupt in one life!?!? LOL

As many times as you can keep getting credit after going bankrupt the first time.

Nice choice on the rim colour, I'm pretty sure I know what it is. I won't spoil it on here but as a side note what colour is your ride?

Congratulations on the order! You won't be disappointed with HRE. Their wheels are awesome and their after sale support is just as good too!

MSRP for 20's in the finish I got was like $2100 a wheel or something. Slightly on the expensive side.

Damn!!!!!

I'd have to seriously consider BBs F1 at that price.
Any idea what it is for 19"?

I think its $100 less per wheel for 19". The F1's are slick, but the fact that they cant be customized from thh factory for that price makes it a NO GO for me.

Sorry BBS, but at that price I should be able to get them rose colored with purple polka dots if I wanted. Thats another reason HRE is the industry leader, you want it... you got it if you have the cash!

i didn't know about the rush service. out of curiosity, around how much would that add to the purchase price?

All wheel and tire posts should include wheel sizes and offsets, as well as tire sizes. Not giving this info makes the post much less useful.

I was quoted $1000 to move it up to the front of the line. Hardly worth it.

Depends, to some people it would be worth it! They may be attending a show or something of that sort. it also depends on the dealer who charges the price.

Pricing depends on our current production queue. You would be surprised how many of our customers take advantage of our Rush Service. Although most of the competition is quoting 2 months to 5 months production time, our average is definitely considered fast.
