    HRE Wheels Help for my C63

    I have more or less narrowed my search for wheels down to two HRE models. I am building a widebody on the C63 so will be getting the wheels and doing the fenders with the wheels in place.
    I am stuck between these two models below:
    The P40SC as seen on this CLS in the same satin finish.

    The P44SC as seen on this Ford.

    or the front runner at the moment which is the P43SC as seen on this porker.

    I like the P43SC as its a rather plane wheel and with a 20X12.5J will allow for a nice concave look. The wheels on the Merc are a bit overplayed and the stock rear brakes might look a bit small on the eight spoke P44SC.
    What do you guys reckon?

    P40SC, the concave gets more aggressive with a wider offset which would look great on a wide body C63.

    I'd go with the P40SC, in gunmetal finish.
    Looks something like this:

    Lucky everyone has different tastes otherwise we would fight over the same woman. Won't announce which I picked and will keep it as a surprise when I unveil the widebody pictures in a couple of months.

    It's photoshop fortunately. But it's not the point, the rims themselves look fab! I ordered a set of 20's, they should look great on the car.

    43/40/ or 47's (I prefer 47s due to 5 spoke) but your original intentions lean more toward the 43's

    First of all thank you my friend. Regarding to the color, yes. It was supposed to grey on grey. But i really didn't want the 14 months waiting list since i'm about to leave here for France. So after a few phone calls i figured there is a 458 with red/black combo order with only 3 months waiting list and it's owner had pulled of his order which rarely happens and when it happens, the owner asks for a lot of money. But what this guy asked above sticker for this car was close to nothing and it became mine.

    As for the original rims, i don't like the way they look and the HRE's look much better than them. The stock rims will sit in garage for now till these super light weight babies arrive for track days:
