    That seems sort of expensive, but I don't know what HRE's cost these days. I got 17x8 and 17x9 GTO style wheels with Goodyear F1's (225/45r17 and 255/40r17), two extra wheel caps, lugnuts, and mounting for $3500.

    I like the HRE 547R better, but that's just my opinion. I'm not a big fan of aftermarket wheels in general and would probably spend my 5 grand on another part of the car instead. But, if you like them and have been saving up, why not?

    Does anyone have pics of the 2 HRE models side by side? (mounted on Ferraris preferably)

    I prefer the 547R because I like seeing break disks :)

    If these are you choices, then get the 540r. But please, not polished or chrome! yuck!

    I like the 547 better.

    'But on thing I will neve have on any future vehicle is spokes on a wheel that are smaller than my fingers with a rag wrapped around. I had a set of 540-like wheels on a 320 bimmer, I hated each and every wash job simply because of those wheels, My fingers could not reach in a remove the brake dust with a rag on.

    So, in general I find my wheel styling position is "simpler is better".

    The 547R wheels look really great on that 360.
