Also if HRE is receiving shipments of its own wheels, I guess that answers whether the wheels are made in house or not!
This is correct, I'm not longer with HRE. But I still have a strong love for the brand and it's associates That probably tells you something about the company.

I have a set in the garage, just waiting on tires; hope to have them mounted next week.

Should have proper photos of the car within the next couple weeks.

Curious about the concavity of these as I've gotten different impressions from the minimal pics I've been able to find

In for pics of yours (even quick ones ?)

Who repainted them for you or did you get that color directly from HRE?

Can't wait to see them mounted on your car.

Lots of money for Cast wheels that wear the "HRE" moniker.

They look nice though

roughly 2900 bucks. I don't know what a vendor could do for you, but that's what I'm seeing advertised.

I mean if you think 2900 is expensive you've never bought some HRE before haha. My P40S were like 6500.

Nah I've definitely bought some expensive shit before, but 3000 bucks for essentially some Forgestar wheels...yeah no.

At least with forgestar, there's a larger variety of widths and offsets for almost a grand less.

I agree I just meant they are cheap for HRE. Some Forgestar wheels are $3000

Most of the CCWs I like only come in 18s.

Frankly I really want Vorsteiner VSM101 on my new car but I'm not willing to pony up that kind of cash for wheels again. I was always so worried about messing up those HRE. I wish OEM GTS wheels had more aggressive offsets... Ill probably end up w/ some used RAC or BBS CH-R.
