HRE Performance Wheels, over the last 30 years, has been designing, engineering and manufacturing top-tier quality wheels in the automotive industry. That you may already know, but what you may not know or what you may not see is what we do here on a (daily/weekly) basis, and that's our intention with this thread. We want to invite you to take a look at some photos that we have posted up of things that we have going on around the shop! For those who are unable to come and visit us during our open house that we have, this thread is an opportunity to get another view inside HRE Performance Wheels, and to see all the fun things we're working on in the process.

1-Piece wheel in the process of being machined


3-Piece center in the process of being machined (S204 Wheel)


A couple of our 4-axis Toyoda machines putting in some work!


Front row of our hard working machines, which keep pumping thanks to our hard working employees :)


Some of our mills just behind the front row


Some of our 3-piece forgings in the foreground, and to the right you can see some of the 1-piece forgings


P101 Wheels made for a Ferrari La Ferrari










S204 Centers after getting brushed (not cleaned yet so they appear dirty)








HRE P101 Wheels out from being hand brushed


P40SC's and some P101's look to be ready to ship out soon


Couple sets of R101's for track use!


S101 Centers after machining
One thing you may notice is that the spokes are thicker, this is because they are going onto an SUV, therefore the load rating has to be higher to make sure they can take the abuse


If you have any requests for things you want to see around the shop, just post your request and I'll see what I can do! Thanks for checking us out and subscribe if you want to see updates on more of what goes on at HRE Performance Wheels!

Other than us, you're now one of the first to see some details on the S204 wheel, one of our most unique and complex wheels. Machining times are insane on these, but you can see from the detail of the angles of the spoke, why it takes more time. Truly is a thing of beauty:

This is just too good not to share with everyone else. We just completed a set of R101 Wheels for a Porsche GT4 Clubsport in 18x9/18x10.5, and we're very pleased with the weight as you can tell!

Front 18x9 weighs in at 16.8Lbs
Rear 18x10.5 weighs in at 19.0Lbs










And now installed!


RS100 with a Brushed Copper Lip




FlowForm FF15's on display in Racer Orange


A Tesla Model X came to play during our Tesla event a few weeks ago with HRE P101 Wheels on!


We built a set of 19" R101's to test for Cayman GT4's


We have two wheels below. A set of P103's and a set of P107's just after being brushed - Note - the little specs of dirt here and there are from the brushing process. These wheels aren't clear coated yet prior to being cleaned, but you can really see the grain structure of the brushing here:









Thanks for looking!
