Where Can I buy 20" Barrels for Hre wheels?

Hey Guys

I have a new project im undertaking,, where I am going to take 19" Hre reverse lip wheels and have them converted to 20" Step Lip wheels Here are the specs

original wheels:

19X8.5
19x9.5

I want to convert them to Step lip wheels with the following specs

20X10
20X11.5

Where can I buy the barrels to do this conversion? Im having a hard time tracking down step lip barrels thus I figure Id ask here

Thanks!

subscribed to see this setup. Sounds like it's going to be sick

You can try contacting Darwin@Sonic Motorsports. He can source new barrels. He rebuilt my BBS. I don't think (not 100% sure) that HRE makes their own barrels. They source them

I thought that HRE was one (maybe the only one) who did produce their own barrels? Either way, Lon@HRE would be the first person I would ask.

Correct, Hre outsources their barrels so I would be overpaying them for no reason if I went thru them...sorry to let you down but my car will never be as sick as yours lol...Also this will be going on a e63 m6 coupe

From my understanding, they do not make their barrels but I am still researching as well

I think HRE sources both the barrels and lips. Many of the 3-piece custom wheel companies source barrels/lips from the same source.

I thought the 11.5's were going on an E92! M6 will be sick too, can't wait to see the final product

Go right to HRE. There prices are more than fair for wheel rebuilds and you know it is done right.

If I remember correctly, HRE and several other wheel companies source their barrels and lips from Triangle Hard Alloys, or Triangle Tool and Die. I don't think they sell too the public though. You might be able to find some used ones online though. Triangle makes the barrels and lips for many brands. Hope this helps. If not, go through HRE.
