Man...after a bit of a wait, and some shipping BS, I finally got my wheels! I ordered them last week, originally a set of brushed 20's which were supposed to take 4-6 weeks. I got a call from HRE the next day, and they asked if I'd be interested in a set of polished that they had on the shelf. I thought about it, and went for it, since they could get them to me in 2 days. Being the impatient SOB I am, I bit on em. Well, that was a week ago. I got a call Monday morning...the day they were supposed to install them, and apparently there was a problem with shipping. Some dumb ***** decided to send my rims to Texas overnight. How do you F up TX for CA? Anyways, they were overnighted to TX, and then the shop in TX was supposed to overnight them to CA....ok, so worst case I would wait one extra day...no biggie. Yeah, aparently that shop in TX decided they didn't need to send them so fast, so I got them today. Well, after it was all said and done, I got them installed today and they look awesome. I may still have them powdercoated, just because black rims look soooooo sick. I'll post pics tomorrow.

I'll have pics up on monday or tuesday. Dinan hasn't finished yet because Dinan hasn't started yet. There was a delay with the brakes, so I got pushed back a couple weeks. It's going down on Monday or Tuesday.

Good rims. Very similar to the comp series 20's. :M5thumbs: I have Comp 21's with Charcoal Gray powder coat, love it! ;)

Powder coat would look sharp!mmmmmm However, you might like the chrome accents to the car.:dunno:

Congrats!
