Got my wheels, but warning *teaser* pics!

Just got my HRE 20" P43's today, but dont wanna break them outta the packaging because my wheel install is not until next week Friday.

I am DIEING to take a look at them but dont wanna take them outta the handy wrapper ^^

Julius @ WheelSto did a GREAT job of packaging them! Thank you so much!

Just some teaser pics lol

On a side note, these damn things are HUGE. This is the first 20" set I have ever owned.

The reason being I am installing them Friday is because I just passed 2000km as well , and they also have the ///M cover that was missing from my steering wheel (just arrived from Germany, took a month, lol), so instead of bringing in my car multiple times, I figure I will book it all for one day, which will be this upcoming Friday! I am pretty drunk though, and am REALLY tempted to open them all up haha ^^ I will be a super happy camper on Friday: Wheels + Break In period over!

I MIGHT have pics on Monday if I can find a suitable and satisfactory wheel installer in Vancouver lol. I dont wanna do it myself, dont wanna wreck my car! ^^

On a side note, insuring these in Vancouver is actually not that bad, the ICBC (insurance) quote I got, which is universal in all of B.C, is $25 per $1000 value, per year. Given the ruthlessness of people here in Vancity, will be getting this extra coverage for sure! Did not have to pay ANY duty, but GST and PST killed me, lol!

I guess you didn't even need a date...

Don't waste the money on an install, throw them on yourself! Its as easy (easier) as changing a tire, but four times of course...
