best place to buy dpe wheels?

Just trying to get pricing on dpe wheels. Anyone know where the best place to buy from is?
Also considering hm2's should i go with 19x8.5 all the way around or 19x10 in the rear? If any one has pics of the difference that would be great

No matter how low your car is, whenever you run a 10 you will have to modify your fenders, either rolling or shaving. Due to many factors that can cause rubbing, we can only help you by steering you towards what is necessary to take pre-emptive measure to try to prevent it from happening.

You shouldn't have to modify fenders in stock form.

I have DPE's and i definitely recommend Dan or Eric at SPP. With 10s for a coupe, like mine, fender modification is typically necessary.I had 19x8.5 and had rubbing issues do the to offset with my last set of wheels with a 235-45-19 tire. This of course can be avoided by having custom offsets in the case of DPE. My DPE are custom offset and gave me the desired lip I wanted in the rear without sacrificing performance and rubbing issues. Rolling them or having them shaved on the inside might be necessary for the HM2 . In my opinion, go with the DPE, i was decided between HM2 and DPE...and DPE is well worth the extra dough

what size are you running in the rear? I am assuming your car is lowered, are they coilovers or springs?
