    I don't like the look of a stepped lip especially on a Porsche.

    Could go down a size or two on the tire size. looks too bubbly. Also could use more aggressive wheel sizing as far as offsets.

    Yes. They have a few decent looking wheels but as far as being over priced i feel most their designs are very cookie cutter.

    Their look, fit and finish in real life is amazing, it's not that which is over rated. It's their ability to withstand strain, IE racing use.

    I have seen MANY in real life. I think there was only one or two designs i liked. Overall tho HRE doesn't really impress me much.
