Not to mention about those Adv.1, HRE, DPE rims. HK$10k -15k per rim. But they are to keep unless one is a wheel slut. Performance tires only last 10k - 20k km.

I think you should try 21" forged 1 7 mesh just like luigi. Ultra sick. No one dare to put on 21" in HK though, may be you could be the brave one. Just sell them if they don't feel right.

That's why that's a super deal. I think putting on ultra expensive rims (over 10k) in HK may be a hassle. Need to go touch up like every month or so. Hehe.

I can already feel the pain And then you will really need to get PSS and PZero as no other tyres have those sizes.....

I like the look of 21" , but i think the shop has to do a lot of adjustment to fit it in right? and the ride would really be horrible..

Plus, wheeladdict has 2 20" (front) in stock and said 2 weeks to get the rear done....for the new 21"..long long time maybe.

plus..hk roads..hahaa....hmmmm.....

Btw, in US, wheels get stolen, does it happen here?

I am just teasing. Don't get 21" in HK, you will die.

Who will steal your rims, they take the whole car.

Yeah, mali. otherwise how do get to 100000 threads like the E60 guys.

Never believe their timeframes if you need them build (or even refinished for that matter)...... Learnt the hard way.

Take the F14s, and order another set.
