HRE PERFORMANCE WHEELS
NOW AVAILABLE THROUGH TIRERACK.com

San Diego, Calif. (February 15, 2011) - HRE Performance Wheels today announced that Tire Rack, one of the nation’s largest online retail tire and wheel dealers would be offering premium forged HRE wheels to its customers. This new offering allows consumers the unique opportunity to order HRE’s advanced custom performance wheels through one of the most trusted online retailers in the aftermarket business.

“We are thrilled and proud to work with a family-owned business like Tire Rack, known for offering superior customer service, product testing and fitment knowledge,” said HRE Wheels CEO Chris Luhnow. “HRE prides itself on representing those same core values, from our use of motorsport competition as a test bed to our dedication to the highest standards of quality and service. What’s most exciting about this announcement is that customers in areas that previously did not have an HRE dealer will now have access to Tire Rack’s nationwide network of independent recommended installers.”

Tire Rack will begin selling HRE forged Monoblok wheels immediately, including custom fitments for most popular sports cars, luxury cars and SUVs. A variety of Monoblok styles are available, including the iconic P40 “mesh” wheel, multi-spoke, five-spoke and split-spoke designs. All HRE Custom Forged Monoblok wheels are machined from a single block of forged aerospace grade 6061-T6 aluminum, featuring motorsport-inspired designs and are hand-built to exacting standards. A wide array of custom finishes are also available.

“HRE Wheels are a great addition to our offering,” said Tire Rack’s Vice President Matt Edmonds. “The excellence that is reflected in all areas of their product is what our customers have come to expect. From the street to the track HRE performance and luxury wheels will fulfill the desires of the most discriminating enthusiast.”

This announcement comes on the heels of HRE’s recent announcement of a new European division, HRE GmbH, as well as the unveiling of three new wheel lines and several motorsports accomplishments including a Grand-Am road racing championship with the Fall-Line Motorsports BMW team, which it sponsors.

Yes, we have teamed up with HRE wheels.

For more than 30 years, HRE has been dedicated to achieving the pinnacle in style and performance. You may already know that HRE is respected as one of the finest manufacturers in the wheel industry and offer products which are engineered to meet or exceed TUV, JWL and SAE standards. We are starting with their monoblock designs but, the Multi-piece wheels can be special ordered. We do plan to add the 2 and 3 piece designs to the lineup eventually. Each set of wheels is built-to-order once you choose the style, fitment and finish and you can expect a 2-3 week lead time. We will then ship them to you with tires and/or TPMS sensors fitted from any of our 6 warehouses. Usual shipping time from our facility to your location is only 2-3 business days.

Every wheel design is available in one of twelve different finishes.
