Hello, I just joined this site and have seen many great looking cars that you have posted. My car is arriving in 3 months and have to prepare to order all my after market parts, but I was wondering if you guys could give me your opinion on which wheel looks better between these 2 wheels that I have narrowed it down to.

S5 Ibis White/RED (interior)

Wheel size 20x10 the way around and the max lip for F & R. Brushed/Chrome LIP I was thinking to go with 285/25/20 tires.

HRE 891R vs DPE LS5

Hre

If your wallet can take it then go for HRE.

They are the best IMO.

Hre 891r

I'd go for the HRE 891R's. I absolutely love the look of a dual 7-spoke wheel on the S5.

I have a set of Work Varianza T1S wheels, which are dual 7-spoke. So, I suppose my opinion is somewhat biased. :)

You know, DPE (so does iForged) makes a set that looks comparable to the 891's.

I only offer this as an option that is less pricey than the HRE's. My vote is HRE, but be prepared to pay the premium. I'm running a set of custom P40s right now.

That's my car in the DPE gallery, but I have since switched to HRE.

However, if you are gonna go with those conservative offsets there is no reason to go with an expensive HRE. You are paying for the ability to have a true 3 piece wheel on max offsets with max lip. A 10" wheel will not give you that so why pay premium?

For your sizes, I would go with the DPE or Work Varianza.

HRE if you have the money otherwise DPE is fine, both are top quality so you can't really go wrong with either.

I looked at those, but the HRE look better I think. Those look to curvery for me. I like more of a straighter looking spoke.

Well, so far it looks like HRE Look is the better way to go...

You won't be disappointed with the HRE as IMO they are the best in the business....:)

If you're going to go with them, why don't you maximize the look and go with an 11" rear and 9.5" front? It will give you the same rolling diameters and will give you a look that pictures simply can't capture.

If you want to meet up at some point just let me know...

For $6K and higher, you can't beat a HRE...

Will 11" rub with H&R racing springs (1.2" lowering in rear)? Also, you went with 9.5 and 11. Wouldn't 10 and 11" work with the same rolling diameter??

The width of the tire isn't gonna make you rub unless you have inner clearance issues which you don't with this car.

In order to maintain proper rolling diameters and consistent sidewall size, you must go with a 9.5 front to compliment the 11" rear. The proper tire sizes are:
Front- 255/30/20
Rear-305/25/20

Those sizes are within 1mm of all size specs except for width. Use this calculator to see what i'm saying.

Oh no! Not again.....

Putting Asanti's on an S5 is akin to putting granny panties on a super model.

Cool choice. I am eyeing the HRE 891R too, and toyed with photoshop image to get a feel of what it looks like on the ride. THought of sharing, not an expert in photoshop but good enough for impression. Cheers!
