Wheel design I like...

    I'm just wondering if any of you guys know of any other brands that make a wheel like this... this particular wheel is by Redbourne... they don't offer a lug patter that caters to us... (basically only Range Rovers). I really like that design... I don't see myself getting new wheels too soon... but I'm just thinking ahead... cuz, I think I'm eventually will go 22"s

    Here are a couple i found but the HRE is a perfect match for what you are looking for and make it to your specs.

    I'm almost afraid to ask... what would a set of HRE's with tires cost (ball park)?

    22's?

    If so, then I would say depending on the finish approx. $1,400-$1,600 a piece for just the wheels. Tires will run you about another $800-$1,200 depending on the wheel choice.

    But look at this site for more wheel selections.

    I, actually, really like that TSW wheel... I don't like rivets unless they are REAL multi-piece wheels... (even though I know they ARE real on the HRE's, I just don't think they would be in my budget). Dr. do you know the model name or number on that TSW? I looked on that site... but they didn't have that particular wheel under TSW.

    I know... I was just going to comment on that too... too bad, cuz... I think one of my friends has some kind of connection with TSW... I guess they are local (Huntington Beach). Oh well... again, it's not like I'm going to get new wheels anytime soon... I'm just looking, thinking ahead... I don't want to jump into anything like I did with the wheels I have now... I mean... I actually get a lot of compliments on them, but... I think 22's would be SICK.

    22's are prefect fit for the FX and it should of came that way in the first place and lowered too, lol. I has 20's for about 10 months but regretted that i didn't get 22's the minute after they were installed.

    I still vote Alex's volks as best look & performance . . . & those were only 19's!

    Hahah Pierce, you're getting greedy! FX stock with 22's!!! The world was amazed that a cross over suv was coming out with stock "20's" when the FX hit the market=)

    But I'm glad they came with stock 20's because they made our overall OEM diameter quite large (about 30.5") which makes it easy for us to have still a thick sidewall with 22's. I'm not sure how this compares with other cars/suv's but my friend who has 22's on his SUV has the OEM diameter, and he has like 1" of sidewall. Looks like rubber bands.

    I'm in the same boat as you Ken, I want to go to 22's some day and the ONLY aftermarket rim I'd consider isn't made in 22... 20x8.5 and 20x9.5 but no 22's.

    The EXE Konkave, I've had my eye on them since I saw them on that N2MURANOS guy's FX...

    They're offering, or soon offering, most of their wheels in 22's except for that one, so I just sent an e-mail asking if the Konkave's will ever be available in 22's.

    Yes, Dave I really like volks too but I really didn't like the red striping on Alex's wheels but loved the look and color.

    And one can always dream right Ed =)

    I agree with the Doc. about 22's and lowering... but I think the car makers DON'T do it for the mpg's and maybe ride quality... They don't want to hear it for the car reviews saying the ride's too stiff, or the bigger wheels going to use up more breaks blah blah blah... so the car makers leave it up to the buyers to do aftermarket stuff (maybe?)

    Those are pretty nice looking. I like how they're weird and not the norm ya know? I've seen the same style of rim done over and over again, but you don't see many turbine-looking rims or whatever you'd call the ones I like.
     
  19. That was some sick wheels...if I knew I'd be keeping my FX, I'd have bought them from Alex...dang it.
