Yes, we know you're a four five eighter hater.:icon16:

They'll also work well on APM's 599XX which I have two of. APM botched the rims and tires so a replacement is welcome.

Good news for me, because I exactly intended to build Challenge car. One thing which is not great it that
all 4 wheels seems to be of the same width. I doubt they are like that on real car.

Ya, I looked at those exact pics yesterday. I don't think HD got that much of a sharp drop toward the middle as the real Challenge rims....and even if they did you can soften it with some sandpaper. Close enough.

Funny. When I first saw the thread title yesterday, my first thought was:

"Finally, correct 19" BBS race rims.**

**released by Hobby Design, so YMMV"

...but decided to to give them the benefit of the doubt. Guess I was right after all! :)

I have bought two sets of wheels from them and find that their pics make the product look very nice. But then you get yours and end up very disappointed. Even after a lot of work they just do not look good enough. I will never buy wheels from them again.

I second that. Only a couple of sets were halfway decent with some work.

I have several sets of HD rims and they have gotten better over time but they still aren't as slick as FG's or Gionc's.

HD just can't seem to get a handle on their resin materials and/or casting technique. I can work with their rims just fine but stay away from their body kits.

Just would like sharing it with you. This should be one of the first run, since I preorder them a couple of months ago and received yesterday.

Diameter of the rims: one rear 23.4 mm, remaining 23.1 to 23.3 mm

Judge by yourself...

way too much cleanup required. HD wheels are crap.

Are all HD wheels this bad? I have to say Scaleproduction and Geronimo wheels are the best casted i've seen to date.
