Back to the rims. So the HREs are a lot better than the Incurve brand? Is it materials or way they make them or what?
Materials is a big one as well as the way they are made. I would look up the way they make wheels and go from there dude. Its actually very interesting for people that don't know or ever seen the process

Usually price is a correlation with quality. If you don't know HRE then you need to do some homework. You could actually have about 10 DCI's for the price of a Dinan intake.

Sounds like you are purchasing your wheels based on what people in Vegas will say about them. I come to that conclusion by what you said about "Buying anyhting smaller than 20s in Vegas is heresy, I couldn't do it." Did you REALLY want rims that big, or are you afraid of getting clowned by "everyone?" I say go with what looks best with your car, this is not it.

Of course, if you truly like the look then more power to ya. Enjoy it!

Youre 3 looks pretty sick (minus the license plate shenanigans in the front)

Right got ya. Considering 1 in 3 drivers are under some sort of influence in Vegas they dont mess with people about small things like that. Forget they take it seriously other places.

Thanks for spreading the word.

I actually dont hate the rims like most here but i will have to agree the rears dont match the fronts. if your fronts where concave like the rears it would look much better. Also the black paint on the inside makes them look cheap and corny like new vw gti rims. One single color would really help the look.

Thanks for the post.

Off topic but how do you like the dinan stage 3 suspension? I really rather just "kooordinayte" (boomerang reference) and get that set up but its a toss up between that and some Ohlins
