Sorry not a great picture as HRE just got them on the car and was dark outside but Matt sent me this picture. Back on the trailer heading east again on the way to Barrett. Will get some daytime pics soon.

CadV - will the 20's cause your speedo data to be off, or is there a way to adjust for the larger wheels?

Yes it will but I am going to try and minimize it by using 255x35x20 in front and 285x30x20 in the back.

I am really rusty with EFILive but I know you could do it in the older version. I think the dealership will do it for you as well.

Exact sizes I used :)

Cool! Do you think it is necessary to adjust the sizes in the ECM or is the difference to small to worry about?

No need to worry I think. I will know when it comes back but only like 1.8% and .8% I think. Very minimal.

Are the HRE's stock widths and offsets? Any idea on the weight difference from stock?

The dark wheel/light car look is the hawtness.

Ya we have seven cars in Arizona we are putting in the display now but I will get some pics when I get there. Our 705HP ZR1 has some black HRE's on it and it looks SICK! All 7 cars have HRE's but the ZR1 looks killer.

Mr Dave Golder-

Looks viscious! Awesome look.. Are they staggered at all?

Love the wheels, but I still think it may be a just smidgeon too low. Just bordering on the low-rider look - not exactly the look I'd be aiming for on a V. Curious to see how it looks with better lighting.

Looks great!!!!!!

For the lowering: Did you replace the rear shocks at all? Is it Eibach or a custom coilover setup? Thanks!

ahhhh the back badging on that car helps me to understand who Dave and "we" are... i've been a big fan of "we" for a long time

very intrigued now as i'd already been on their website looking at the 610hp 660hp and curious about the 800hp kits lol

i had sent an email asking questions about the costs of the 610 and 660

and if that was est crank or rwhp

can you help me out with that?

Lowered the spring seat in the rear and machined the strut in the front.
