I'm hoping to get some HRE's for the spring and I'm trying to decide what I should get. I know I want some HRE's with a deep dish (haven't decided on which ones) but I need some help deciding on what size to get. I put a lot of miles on my car and I'm concerened about performance but at the same time I like to be pimpin as well. Suggestions/comments would be much appreciated.

do 19inch pete,

u dont wanna make a purchase like that, and come out to ur car every day, look at them and think "damn, i shoulda got 19's"

thank god HRE are strong wheels, ur making a great choice there :thumbup: i think if u drive carefully and get them off before the first Buffalo snowstorm, that they will last :D

hope u get satin finish w/ a polished lip!

Make sure you get lightweight. Our AWD 2.5Ls are pretty snailish as it is. :)

19s all the way!!!

18s look fine if you are looking at your car by itself. Just don't park next to any 19s cuz you'll end up kicking yourself and will be forced to upgrade to 19s. Especially with an investment in HREs, do it right the first time :thumbup:

18s. 18s. 18s.



Dont be foolish, performance will decrease w/ almost EVERY 19in rim on the market.

Do youself a favor and get LIGHTWEIGHT 18s, you will love you car SO much more.

I am in Buffalo too. I managed to bend a rim last spring. The road here after the winter could be very bad. So drive carefully with your new rims.
