Finally got my wheels installed and got a chance to snap some pics

I actually got these installed last week but didn't have time to take pics until this week. I will be changing these up a little bit as soon as I receive my red/white/blue center caps from HRE.

Specs on the wheels are 20"x9"F ET28 255/30/20 and 20"x10.5"R ET28 285/30/20. Tires are Vredestein Ultrac Sessantas.

Sick! Looks like the et 28 is pretty solid choice. I have been debating on getting 19" HRE's myself, but et 22. Maybe i should reconsider?!

The front looks like is has a little room to play so 22 might actually work but the back is pretty close with the tires I'm running (285/30/20 Vreds) so I'm not sure if you could get it out 6 more mm without rubbing. Might have to go to a 295/25/20 with that offset.

I haven't had a chance to take pictures yet but I changed the look a little bit since the original pictures were taken. The center caps were changed from the black/silver to the red/white/blue caps. I think it looks much better now since it breaks up the monotone feel of all black/silver.

Where did you get those tires? I'm looking for some new tires. Heard good things about them. What do you think so far?

Ordered them online from Performance Plus Tire. Shipping was insane but total cost still was cheaper than most tires available. I think the total was under $1100 for the set. So far I really like them and when we were having crazy rain the other week the car was able to just plow through the rivers on the H-2 freeway like nothing.

Got a chance to snap some pics today with new red/white/blue center caps. I think its a much better match to the color of the car than the standard silver/black.
