This past weekend I got the great opportunity, along with a few hundred other automotive enthusiasts, to visit the home of HRE Performance Wheels. Every year HRE is gracious enough to open its doors to the public and let everyone see how their products are produced. They are one of the few wheel companies still manufacturing wheels here in the USA. They’ve taken great stride to improve their products and they take great pride in showing everyone how. Every set of wheels is made specific to each customer’s request. If you’ve never visited HRE I strongly recommend it next time they hold an open house.

There were lots of cool cars present at the HRE Open House from the stock to the wild. Cool stuff like an turbo LSX powered Nissan 200SX, a slammed to the ground BMW CS Coupe, and even a Lamborghini Miura. There was something for everyone present. There was even the sacrilegious to some Aston Martin Vantage Convertible with a Supercharged LS3. Domestics, Imports, Euro’s they were all wearing HRE’s. HRE isn’t a wheel brand that caters to just one category of the automotive world. They cater to all and will build you what you want.

As part of the event they had vendors showing off their goods, food trucks, and even a raffle. The raffle was to win a set of ANY HRE wheel you would want. Yours truly bought two tickets, but unfortunately I was six off the winning number. I was looking forward to putting $6k wheels on a $1k car. Oh well, maybe next year.
But you didn’t have to have HRE wheels on your car to come to the HRE event and show off your ride. There were plenty of nice rides around with wheels from various other manufacturers. This event was really just a celebration of car culture. Towards the end of the event there was a small show put on by the Creations N’ Chrome Chrome-red painted “Boy Racer” Mustang. All in all it was a great event and I’m already marking the calendar for next year!

It is never much of a bad thing to start with a clean slate when it comes to modifying your car. When things become a bit of a challenge is selecting something ‘better’ when the clean slate happens to be a new Ferrari 458 Italia.

Already, the 458 Italia is a great looking exotic car. Even the stock wheels appeal to the over-all aesthetics of such a sexy Italian stallion. How do you select aftermarket wheels with the proper fitment, stunning fishing and exceptional quality? Simple, you go to the guys at HRE Wheels who have been in the business of literally ‘Racing to Win’ and offering some of the finest wheels for street vehicle applications for about 33 years.

HRE Wheels has decided to roll out their newest Monoblok ultra-lightweight wheels, the P44SC and P47SC, on the Ferrari 458 Italia and Ford GT featured below in collaboration with eGarage.

Release information

New P44SC and P47SC

HRE Performance Wheels has added two new designs to its P40SC Monoblok Series, featuring ultra-lightweight, precision-machined spoke geometry available with a sophisticated conical face. The new Monoblok P40SC line uses the same forged alloy single block construction as the P40S, but new forging and machining processes developed by the California based luxury wheel brand allow HRE to create stronger, lighter, more aggressively styled Monoblok wheels thanks to technology born on the wind-swept hairpins of Pike’s Peak and the chicanes of America’s fastest road courses.

The new P40SC line is available as the P40SC mesh, P43SC multi-spoke, P44SC V-Five, P45SC five-spoke and P47SC split-five spoke in 19 and 20-inch sizes diameters with widths ranging from 8 to 13-inches and a wide variety of custom offsets. Every wheel starts as a single block of aerospace grade 6061-T6 aluminum forged in California, and after a painstaking design and engineering process, is machined into its final shape at HRE’s cutting-edge facility in San Diego. All five new Monoblok designs utilize spoke geometry that not only look fantastic, they provide the strength, rigidity and lightweight characteristics that are essential for proper performance in modern sports or supercars.

Featuring a Ferrari 458 Italia on P47SC in Brush Tinted and a Ford GT on P44SC in Satin Bronze.
