: Down to one of these three wheels

09-11-12, 01:13 AM
Car is a '12 Crystal Red V. I have not blacked out any trim. Wheels will have black centers. On the 3-piece wheels (HRE 540C and ADV7) the lip will be chromed. On the 1-piece HRE P40S, the center cap will be polished and I will use stainless lug nuts. I think the look will be correct to bring out some chrome/polish since I have not blacked out any of the window trim.

I like them all, and probably can't go wrong with any of them. Sizes will be 20x9 front and 20x10.5 or 20x11 in the rear.

+1 HRE P40's. Not a fan of the deep dish lip.

What are these wheels going for?

+1 HRE P40's. Not a fan of the deep dish lip.

I believe given the required offsets for our cars, the 3-piece wheels will not be very "deep dish." Just no real way to do that without pushing the wheel outside the fenderwell.

I love wheels with a polished lip. I can't recall me ever seeing a Ctsv with 3 piece wheels.

cts-v doesnt look good with the deep lip IMO. I had some deep dish TIS 03s on my Chrysler 300c and they looked killer but the lip looks forced on the V. Just not enough room for a lip. There are plenty of pics with them and if thats the look you are going for, do what makes you happy. I prefer the concave look such as the nurburgrings, forgestar f14s, CF10s. or the HRE p40. ADV.1 makes a few nice concave style wheels as well.

Agree concave looks best on the V.

My issue is that there is a dramatic difference between the rear and front if you try to go with a deep concave look. Personally, I don't like that. Looks fine from the side, but at an angle, it looks funny to me. Front wheel is going to be flat no matter what... very little concave effect on the front wheel. There isn't going to be any true "deep dish" look to any of them, due to the offset issue. I figure the front will be ~1" lip and the rear 1.5". The pics of the 3-piece wheels above obviously look much more "deep dish" than how it would actually turn out.
