Hello Everyone,

I need some help. I have been shopping for and checking out tons of wheels lately and have settled on 3 styles. Which do you guys prefer. HELP ME!!!

1. 19" HRE 547's
2. 19" Volk AV3's
3. 19" Racing Hart C-5's

Now I know that the HRE's are super expensive but I really like them and know they are great quality being custom made.

Secondly I really like the Volks. Tehy look really clean on the link below.

I know the Racing Harts are really played out but they are a great looking wheel.

Sorry no Racing Hart link.
Thanks for your advice in advance.

hey Lex, cool name...
i would probably go with the C-5s they kinda oldskool but they got the fat LIP if you get the right ones. i like the C-5s but the only reason i might not get them is because i see them on everything from civic to mustangs.

I would pick the C5, because they best match the IS in my opinion. Although my favorite rims are Blitz Technospeed Z1s

dt1313 - Thanks for your suggestion. Those are some hot looking wheels. I like them on your car but I have seen them on a black GS4 and didn't really care for them. I like them on the White better. Your car looks real clean.

HyperMKIV - Thanks for putting up that link. I guess I was too lazy to go to DAZZ and get it.

Don't get me wrong, i like the Racing Harts, it is just that I want something that is not all played out. The R/H are on every car from Civics to Mustangs like someone else posted on here.

I want something original.

I have access to 2 perfect 6 month old 19" R/H for $600 for the pair. I just need to buy two new ones. Just still undecided.

Anyone know if the Volk AV3's have a center cap option? Meaning that you can switch that gold center cap for something silver. I am not into the gold thing.

Any help or links would be appreciated?

HREs heavy? I don't think so!

AV3s played out? I think so!

I just saw a set of the Koenig AV3 copies on a Sentra... I've never seen HREs on a Sentra.

BTW, HRE builds wheels for Hennessey Vipers, Lingenfelter Corvettes, Mallett Corvettes, Specterwerkes, and the new Saleen S7- not to mention F40 & F0 Ferraris, Diablos, Porsche Turbos, etc.

Pretty good company if you ask me...

Of course most of you guys would be happy with some heavy cast aluminum wheel in ghetto chrome...

My 2 cents

Can anyone confirm where to get the center cap replacements? I really want them to be silver. Not the gold.
