As much as I loved my HRE's, they were just a bit too blingy for me.



The fully polished centers were too nice to powdercoat so I sold them on and picked these up. Not the best photos, but it's all I was able to snap before the rains came.

BBS RS-GT
19x8.5et35 - 235/35 Conti ExtremeContact DW
19x9.5et25 - 255/30 Conti ExtremeContact DW

I think i may pick up some 5mm spacers for the front, but need to finalize fitment first. Rolled the rear fenders yesterday and may need to trim the front liners. I also have a camber kit for the rear that I might just slap on.

Hope you dig...

Normally I'd say it would be hard to upgrade from HRE's... In this case, you did. Those RS-GT's compliment your car perfectly. Definitely an upgrade!

You can't go wrong with either. The HRE wheels complement your silver trim and BBS looks good on anything

Thanks gents. Geez, just realized these pix suck, i think the weather is supposed to be decent this weekend... hopefully i can get the car back out and play w/ the camera some more.

And Seth, I'm still bummed I wasn't able to work something out with those RC's, but this will do for now.

I don't comment on too many wheel posts. In fact most can't stand my wheels and I'm ok with that, because I like them...and I don't have them to impress others. I'm always looking for other wheels that I might like better, so far, nothing has peeked my interest....UNTIL NOW !!!

Those are some nice looking wheels, at least on that black coupe, hmmm I might have to photoshop them on my Alpine vert...and see what the Easter Bunny might have in his basket for me.

Nice looking ride .... Be safe ...

Thanks man. At the end of the day, it's your car and you gotta do what YOU like. These look a lot better in person, I'd highly recommend them

Appreciate it, I'm normally not a fan of brightly colored wheels, but I LOVE your car, you pull that off so well!

Thanks Don. You've convinced me to wrap my window trim w/ the images in your thread -- wish you were nearby and I'd let you do the honors.
