Rim Job…

I asked this on G+ (where I seem to be spending most of my non-Twitter posting these days), but while there is overlap in those that follow me there and here, it's mostly a different set, so I don't feel I'm repeating myself.

As some of you know, I'm onboard with getting a lovely 'mid-life crisis' car, a 2014 Audi RS5, complete with a custom paint colour not normally available on that model: Lava Grey Pearl. I fell in love with the colour when I saw a bedecked Audi R8 in the parking lot of the McLaren store on the way to my house (I really should up my game and get one of those one day).

As most of you also know, I like to mod my cars. Some heavily (like the Honda — I put a JDM Prelude engine into it), some lightly (my TSX has new wheels, CAI, and a HONDATA chip). The RS5 comes with a stunning 450HP, and a fairly nice 318 lb-ft torque, so I don't really see me modding the NA V8 engine too much. That leaves me with suspension and wheels.

HRE makes some of the best forged wheels on the planet. I've chosen them as the brand I'm going with, but now I'd love your input on which wheels *you* like (I've got my faves).

Go here, and let me know what you think…
