New Monoblok Series one-piece forged aluminum wheels offered through participating Mercedes-Benz dealerships across the country
VISTA, Calif., August 7, 2007 – HRE Performance Wheels, a leading designer and manufacturer of high-quality forged custom alloy wheels, today announced it has launched its new Forged Monoblok wheel line (M Series), which is manufactured exclusively for Mercedes-Benz vehicles and is available at participating Mercedes-Benz dealerships across the country.
The Forged Monoblok Series consists of the M40, M43, M45, M53 and M58. The wheels are one-piece forged aluminum, with the offsets and widths designed to mount directly on select Mercedes-Benz models without the need for an adapter. The wheels are compatible with factory tire pressure monitoring system, and accept factory Mercedes-Benz caps. The line is available in both brushed aluminum clearcoat and brilliant chrome plating.
The Forged Monoblok Series is available to fit Mercedes-Benz S-Class (S550, S600, S63, S65), CL-Class (CL550, CL600, CL63, CL65), CLS-Class (CLS550, CLS55, CLS63), SL-Class (SL500, SL550, SL600, SL55, SL65) and E-Class (E550, E350, E320, E55, E63) models.
“With the availability of our Monoblok Series in participating Mercedes-Benz dealerships throughout the United States, consumers can now get their new vehicles delivered with HRE wheels already installed,” said Evan Kinsella, president of HRE Performance Wheels. “We believe this will create value for both the dealerships and their customers, and look forward to expanding our relationship with key Mercedes-Benz dealerships.”
The wheels are designed using a 100 percent forged 6061 heat-treated aluminum platform to optimize strength and weight resulting in exceptional ride quality and performance. Each wheel is engineered as a model-specific Mercedes-Benz fitment. The Forged Monoblok program was developed as a wheel and tire package program, with every Monoblok wheel available as a ready-to-install package with tires, TPMS sensors and precision RFV balancing. Each package can be installed within a few minutes. The wheels come with a comprehensive warranty of 4 years/50,000 miles under normal driving conditions to match the vehicle warranty.
