I will keep updated with progress and will annoy Vince with my calls everyday
I think you made a good choice! I'm sure HRE will take good care of you.

It's best to work with us directly, that way you know it is done right. And Vince is use to work with customers on a regular basis, he's been at HRE Wheels for over a decade

Look fwd to seeing some mounted pics. Hope you like the finish better. A top shelf wheel that really compliments the M3...good move on the finish.

Sent a pair of wheels to get refinished as well.

How long did it take for you to get them back?

So I hear this talked about all the time.. The annealing process happens at 600F+ for forged aluminum. No baker in his right mind would turn the oven up to 1.5x recommended baking temps. I think its a bologna that people even try to argue this.

I'm not an engineer but I just talked to our engineering team and they say we have sound data showing significant reduction in strength after temperature exposure much lower than 600F. Customers are free to do what they want, but with HRE, we have to recommend what we feel is safe.
