Very nice wheels. Very expensive though. I have to say the HRE's I have seen on cars on the street stand out to others I have seen (e.g. Fikse, Kinesis, BBS).

HRE's are good looking and pricey, as Kary said. Fikse, Kinesis, and BBS all make excellent wheels too.

I have Fikse Mach V's that I love, but I think the finish and clear coat on HRE's are the best out there.

I own my own company of car tuning and I do have accounts with all the vendors such as BBS and HREs. So i could get pretty good deal on them.
:-)

but i want the best for my car, I really like HREs but the LMs are so classic as well. just a little torn between them.

i just wanted to see what was the level of interest in the P-club for these cars.

Personally, I like the HRE 540R. They look great but so do the Kenesis and Fikse.

I think HREs are the best wheels money can buy!!
Lil Raja - PM me if you can hook me up on a good deal for a set of HREs.

Thumbs up

Just put a set of 19" 542Rs on my TT. Mine have the brushed centers. IMO, they are the best looking wheel on the market. I also looked at the Techarts, Gemballas and Champion Motorsports. I like the Gemballa Competitions, but I wanted 19s. The Techarts look too much like the factory and the Champion's are too difficult to clean.

ESKPORT - My HREs came with letters saying they should be mounted with the spokes pointing the other way!!

MSINDI - I talked to the people where I bought the wheels and they said it is strictly preference. I like the look of the spokes facing forward.

anyone who needs a good price just email me:
[email protected]
and tell me what you are looking for size/model etc.
I have one of the best prices around.

I plan to get 841Rs for my car and hopefully a second set that would be BBS LM i think.

And yes, of course the stock market isn't helping me much in any way.

I like the brushed center finish as well over polished. I too was thinking of Techarts (does not do anything for me), Gemballas (looks too much like 80s wheels), Champion (nice with the dimond cut, but no dish in the rear for the C4S).
I like Champion wheels for the narrow body with their new front bumper and rear bumper. I am sure u all have seen them on Excellence.

best regards,
Raja
