    Opinion on wheels Photoshop help

    Was pretty much set on Interlagos for my Thunder Gray ATS but I heard today the fronts are out of stock so before I start poking around these MRR HR9 caught my eye

    INTERLAGOS



    MRR HR9




    Yay or Nay on the MRR's ????

    Personally I like the interlagos better. Not only do they look great but are nice and light weight. I would not settle. Getting the wheels you want is worth waiting for.

    I think the MRRs would look better on the ATS but would not accept extra weight for a small looks improvement.

    I hope someone can photoshop them on an ATS because a great looking wheel on a great looking car might not be a "great" combination. For example, the standard Premium wheel looks better to me than the optional Luxury/Premium 18" but the latter looks slightly better to me on the ATS because it has more compatible design elements. I think it will be the same for the MRRs compared to the Interlagos on the ATS but need to see them on the car to be sure.

    I am biased to the Interlagos (my rims are powdercoated Interlagos) but the MRRs look really nice. I like them.

    Thank you man!! I am really torn now for sure as D3 says they can get the Interlagos now.
    I like the fact that the MRR's are a bit more unique for the ATS but the Interlagos look damn good too!

    MRR's have been ordered! If they look bad on the car over to the for sale forum they go . Hopefully they look half as good as that Photoshop.
    Thank you everyone for your input!

    I cannot imagine them looking bad. Be sure to post pics when you get them mounted up.

    yeah I don't think there is any way they would look bad at all. I think the Interlagos give the car a bit more sport look and the MRRs give it more of a classy look.

    Re: Opinion on wheels Photoshop help

    Well thank you guys for the input which helped me make my decision for the MRR's . They look great in person and test fitting them went thankfully well, I will try to get the tires put on tomorrow.

    One odd thing is on all wheels the wheel pad is machined down half way to about where the lug goes through. I called element wheels and asked about this and the rep said this is normal and common on newer wheels and some OE's as well. His truck has the same cut on the pad, What do you guys think?

    Here are the fitment photos which I am really happy with! (the car is resting on the wheels btw)

    Re: Opinion on wheels Photoshop help

    The manufacturer should be able to tell you the safe amount that can be removed but it's common for wheel makers to do that to get different offsets from the same wheel blank. And even my HREs are factory milled to get the exact offset desired. The inner and outer hoops come in 1/4" inch increments and dictate the width and the offset to the nearest 1/4". Then they mill off what's needed on the center to get the exact offset.

    Re: Opinion on wheels Photoshop help

    Thanks for the input guys , better pics to come but here are interesting facts. The stock wheel tire combo weighs 54 lbs , the new rears weigh 58 and the fronts are 54 as OE ! . The ride comfort definitely improved over the ZP's it absorbs the smaller cracks and bumps way better!
