I've had a set of 'kook Ventus V12 Evo's on my former 997S and former 335 and they were absolutely fantastic tires....95% as good as a PS2 at 1/3 the cost. I'll have them on my M3 come spring time again. Take a look around at the number of people wearing these tires. They are damn good tires for spirited street driving.

Those Morr wheels do look nice, but a little too similar to the ZCP that came on the car. Since I was changing wheels, I wanted something different or I would gave gone with P40s or R40s in black.

ZCP wheels look ten million times better than the other two IMO. You're killing performance with those heavy 20's, and the Hankook tires aren't helping at all. Check the Tire Rack survey:

http://www.tirerack.com/tires/survey...ay.jsp?type=MP

The Hankooks lack in steering response and cornering stability when compared to most of performance summer tires.

Aren't the ZCP wheels made by BBS?

Matt, I will be impressed if it's JWL/VIA or TUV certified wheel.
I'm not against a bling wheel for people who only care about that. I've said before the wheels look great; just not what I'm looking for.

I've never been a huge HRE fan either until they came out with the track line of wheels. It's a start, and they seem to be TUV certified, so that adds a lot of credibility.

^^ Understood. Nothing against you at all! We've got boatloads of STL certified pages here identical to what MORR posted up and i'm trying to get Jordan to post them up but at the end of the day it's his call. I'm trying for you guys though!

WHY IS EVERYONE FORGETTING ABOUT FORGELINE????

if you want a wheel at a better price than any hre or adv.1 forgelines are superlight and superstrong but most importantly race proven

ADV.1 Will not be in business that long... due to there customer service and the way they get things done i am not impressed.... This is coming from experience, when i ordered wheels 4 times and they came back wrong and scratched and then they cut them to small. I dont even know how ADV can do things like this... HRE has my vote.

Haters going to hate. I have a set of ADV.1 ADV10's and they are a work of art. This is the only forum I know of that has so many ADV.1 haters.

I had no issues with ADV.1 until they stated they had TUV certs and test reports for over 100 applications, and since making that statement they have not provided any supporting documentation. They've stated this info is available to their customers - so when you ordered your wheels did they deliver them with the TUV certs/reports?

I got the exact opposite experience from them. I needed a new set of wheels quickly last week, couldn't wait for custom ones to be made, so Jordan actually text me back and forth pics of what he has in stock that will fit my car. He even called me a couple of times until he got me the set/finish I wanted.

I highly doubt Alan Peltier of HRE would do that.

+1 they go above and beyond what's necessary. I wouldnt be surprised if that guy didnt even order anything from them.
