    Re: Antera 20" forged 375 on white gt3

    the rim design is great. But they are way to shiny!

    Re: Antera 20" forged 375 on white gt3

    YO!!! BLING..... Pimpin!

    Re: Antera 20" forged 375 on white gt3

    Way too bling for me!!! Ruined the car..

    Re: Antera 20" forged 375 on white gt3

    Wheels like this would make it harder to sell the car in the UK IMHO. Why would anyone want to 'bling up' a GT3?

    Re: Antera 20" forged 375 on white gt3

    I put HRE 540R 19 inches (brushed steel with chrome lip). I like aftermarket wheels. I think they are nice looking. I thinking adding aftermarket wheels adds a personal touch to the car. In Socal, there not that bling. I like them.

    But they're heavy and ill suited for performance driving and track use, thus undermining the pure function of the GT3. If you care about appearance over performance, why bother buying a GT3 in the first place?

    Re: Antera 20" forged 375 on white gt3

    I was told that they were lighter than the stock wheels, and definitely one of the strongest wheels on the market, even though I don't track the car. And yes a car appearance is important to me. HRE are made for competition and for there fantastic appearance. I donot particularly enjoy stock wheels. In addition, I know four guys with GT3 and none of them track the car. And why did I buy this car if I don't plan on track it, because it's one of the most baddass porsches ever produced, period. I could bought a C2S and load it up with options, but why? For a few more thousand I bought a GT3.

    Re: Antera 20" forged 375 on white gt3

    Some of you guys are funny , these wheels are not bling !!
    If they came from Porsche most would be all over them

    Now this is bling :

    Re: Antera 20" forged 375 on white gt3

    The rule is simple in UK/europe :

    If its OEM / factory fit then its not bling
    If its aftermarket is it bling/maxpower/ricer

    I think that in the US there is a greater level of acceptance of aftermarket product, so many on this forum may find the wheels acceptable.

    Re: Antera 20" forged 375 on white gt3

    Maybe this simple rule is valid for you but certainly not for me and I am European too.

    Bling is over the top , too much of something , tasteless and these Antera wheels are certainly nothing of the above.
    By your defenition Ruf , Techart and many more are all bling , not so !

    Re: Antera 20" forged 375 on white gt3

    Looks like Sportec

    Re: Antera 20" forged 375 on white gt3

    OK appologies, maybe europeans are also more forgiving like the US. Not so in the UK market tho, aftermarket adds almost always damage residuals.

    Re: Antera 20" forged 375 on white gt3

    HREs are beautiful wheels but strong they are not. They have been banned from a number of track events due to their tendency to break under heavy load.
