Best place for wheels in Texas?

I moved to Houston from Orange County last year and umm let's just say that I havent been able to find many high-end wheel shops, tuning shops, etc. Orange County is obviously a different market, but needless to say, I was far from impressed with the offerings!

Looking for a good wheel shop in Texas to order HRE's from. Doesnt have to be in Houston.... I assume Dallas has much more to offer. Just want a high-end shop that know high-end cars.

thanks!

Great hotel and wonderful venue for a wedding. We live in Laguna Beach and visit the montage often. Are you going to drive the M5 out ?

There is NO reason to visit Houston. If it weren't for my job, I'd be back in Orange County in .000000003 seconds.

I have relatives who live outside Houston (I think north around Montgomery) maybe somewhere else, but from photos it looks nice. They really like it and hate Houston so maybe there does exist a decent area.

Houston is a SH Hole. You are correct.

I have dealt with Jason Stevenson @ American Wheel and Tire for years and I highly recommend him. He can get HRE's. They are located over on 290 in between Mangum and 34th (new shop - used to be on Hempstead near loop 610).

Wow all the bad things to say about H-town. I'm from Imperial Beach San Diego, but have lived here for many many years and it is not a bad place to live. So much to do and see. As far as the roads, we do have some really nice windy country roads to drive on. All you have to do is give it a chance.

Will try and help you

Hey Houston has it's down side, but there is no state tax, unemployment and welfare (free stuff) is not as bad as Cal. Texas is not broke and the state is not asking the people who work to give more to the lazy ones, people move to Texas for jobs, the cockroach problem is every where, if you want to own a gun you can, gas isn't $4.00 a gallon, the freeways are still not as bad as LA, and probably the best thing going for the state are the people are friendly. Just my take!! Sorry you had to come to such a terrible state, I will help you fine a shop

Call Wheels Boutique in Miami. Best place to buy wheels. Huge distributor. #1 in the world for HRE. Great prices and service. They can mount up the tires, etc. and send to you and yo can just have a local shop bolt those babies on. I am awaiting my HRES101s from them as we speak.
