Hartmann G5 19x8 running 235/35 R19
Lol yes lowering it is in the plans. Wanted to have the wheels first so I could get an idea of how low I want to go. So far I haven't noticed a difference in ride quality and don't want to adversely affect it too much. How is your ride quality with the setup you have?
Well I'm running my coils all the way down, you could lift them up a little bit (.25in) and Im sure it would ride even better. The hard hits tend to hit the internal bump stops in my front struts which makes it rough but when I say worse than stock I dont mean exponentially. Its not bone jarring by any means and is completely tolerable.
Here's a CC we did a week or so ago, specs are Hartmann HQ7-446 wheels in 19x8.5" ET62 with 20mm H&R 5x130-5x112 adapters and 245-35-19 tires. This customer currently has to commute on some of the worst roads around in our area so coilovers aren't on the list of mods to do at the moment. It appeared that this setup would be no problem when lowered however a 235 tire or dropping down to the 15mm adapter will give even more clearance.
I can offer a package with 19" HQ7-446s, 235-35-19 Goodyear F1 Asymmetric tires and 15mm H&R adapters for $1,699 (over $600 off) or 18" HQ7-446s, 235-40-18 Falken ZE-912 tires and 15mm H&R adapters for $1,449 (almost $400 off) before shipping. We have only 4 sets of 19s left and about 7 sets of 18s left.
For anyone interested in H&R coilovers in conjunction with this package I can offer them at $1,150
i guess i never added mine to this forum

SCOTTI3 B33 Why are you running such a huge tire? You should have a 30 series tire not a 35 on there. Your speedo is now about 6% off which is a pretty good amount off. For example when your speedo reads 60MPH you are actually going 63.4MPH.

Its probably a little too late for that now.

BTW you need to get that dealer sticker off your car ASAP, I cant believe would put that on there. My dealer was like we arent doing anything to ruin this rear and gave me plate frames.
Hey guys just wanted to see your thoughts on the wheels i just installed today. I

Just a heads up to those who asked, the MRR HR2s are up for sale with tires and TPMS sensors in the classifieds. First dibs will go to locals and people willing to drive to at least MD to pick them up. Deciding between 2 sets for next year as of right now.
