HRE Introduces Black Chrome Finish....

HRE has officially announced that they have included Black Chrome to their finishes for both Monoblok and 3-Piece for an additional charge. Many of you have asked, and now you shall receive. It looks absolutely stunning in person...

Feel free to PM me for pricing on all HRE Products

Those wheels are too small for those wheel arches.

It's not the wheels but the rubber surrounding them. Need much higher sidewalls for a vehicle with that much power! One burnout and you will be down to that black chrome....

It's not been a popular / great looking finish. I believe it won't be a hit for HRE, never liked the look of it.

true, but people that have been around the wheel industry know that black chrome is nothing new......

yeah, it is a matter of preference. when it first came out, people liked it a lot because it is dark and not as bright/flashy looking as actual chrome.

If i had the choice between the 2 (and no other) i'd do the black chrome.
