I pulled the trigger on a set Fall/Spring wheel setup. I picked up a used 20x9" set of Hartmann HTT-256-MA:M wheels from RPI Equipped in BC. The offset is +40 which is a little tucked compared to the OEM 21's the SQ5 came with, so I have opted to install H&R wheel spacers. Twelve mm in the front, and 15 mm in the rear. The spokes are finished in a matte anthracite and the edges are machine polished. I have always been a fan of these wheels, but I have yet to see this particular wheel installed on an Estoril SQ5. Here's an example of the 5-spoke rotor wheels on a black SQ5. I'm hoping they look as good on mine.
Normally, I purchase my tires through Tirerack.com, but the strong US dollar is killing me. All up, the same tires were $200 cheaper through 1010Tires.com. I'm wrapping the Hartmann's with 255/45 Yokohama Parada Spec-X's high performance all-seasons. I ordered the SQ5 without the tire pressure monitoring sensors, so I don't have to fork out a few hundred more for those useless gimmicks. I'll be sure to share some photos once they are delivered and installed.
