Unfortunately we are not allowed to provide offset information on HRE's custom forged wheels. With that said, we don't want to hide this information from the end consumer who ultimately buys wheels - which is why when you purchase a set we'll be able to review all the specs & you'll know the offsets before any part of the manufacturing process begins.

HRE spends a significant amount of time & money on research & development to verify offsets, fitment, proper tires sizes, and so forth - for each individual vehicle. That proprietary information that they retain from posting on forums is because they don't want to give away that information for free. As I mentioned they don't hide this information from customers who end up purchasing wheels. This is standard practice with every wheel brand & they do this so that the data that they collected isn't taken by another company.

Sometimes I feel like I traveled back in time... this is what old wheel vendors used to do in early-mid 2000s with nice Japanese wheels and it backfired.

I no longer see VOLK or others hiding wheel details info on the official sites. Thatís how they sell them, transparency.

Volk manufactures pre-built wheels that are mass produced & only come in a select few fitments. HRE manufactures their forged wheels per order and to the customer's desired specifications. HRE understands transparency and that is why they are more than willing to share fitment information with their customers

Volk would list all sizes/offsets available, but they wouldn't necessarily post sizing and offset that fit a particular vehicle/setup. That was always a discussion between vendor and customer. The secret sauce so to speak.

@WheelsB - Love the P43SCís. I went to the site to request pricing on them. You can PM with the info if you would like. I have a 997.2TT Cab. I would like recommendations on 19s or 20s with Tire sizes. I will need new rubber anyway in the spring and might as well upgrade the wheels while I am at it.
