This is one of the questions we get asked the most and it's one of the most important; the answer is both simple and complex. The simple answer is, "To create the best you must start with the best". What this really means is at every step, we don't cut corners and are continually trying to improve our materials, processes, facility and team to make sure it stays that way. We start with extremely talented people to design and engineer every HRE from sketch to testing, programming and prototyping. From there, only the best materials are used such as our forgings made in California by the same supplier to Boeing, Airbus and Ferrari. Next, our artisans hand prep and brush every wheel by hand spending hours perfecting finishes that only HRE can offer. From there our wheels move to a hand washing process that again shows the care and attention to detail needed to produce our finishes. It then moves to our in-house powder coat process which produces astonishing yet durable colors that complement even the most exclusive vehicles in the world. If it's a 3-Piece wheel, there's still more to do. After powder coating, a 3-Piece wheel needs to be assembled, sealed and checked for runout (making sure the wheel is perfectly round). Even our assembly bolts are designed for HRE by HRE and are produced in the USA by ARP. Before any wheel is considered an HRE, it goes through an extensive quality check ensuring it lives up to the HRE promise. And one of the most commonly neglected parts of a forged wheel is its packaging. This often leads to blemished and damaged wheels so at HRE, we don't skimp here either. Our packaging is specifically designed to keep your wheels safe regardless of how far they are traveling because we want them to arrive just as perfect as when they left.
Generally, our production lead times are an industry-leading 3 to 5 weeks. In some cases, they may take longer if an unforeseen occurance happens such as an inoperable machine, supplier issues or a sudden increase in orders. We will take every opportunity to notify your dealer if such an occurance arises in order to relay this information to you. We also offer a Rush Option which guarantees your wheels will be completed within 10 business days from order confirmation - ask your dealer or HRE Sales Associate for details.
All HRE Forged wheels are made in our Vista, California facility. In addition, all related parts such as our forgings, rim parts, assembly bolts and wheel packaging are also all made in the USA. The only exceptions to this are our FlowForm wheels which are made in Japan.

We are the best and most qualified place to service and refinish your HRE wheels. There are many serious safety issues that can arise with improper servicing or refinishing of any wheel such as improper, missing, fatigued or broken assembly hardware, excessive stripping or powder coating tempuratures, improper lug hole drilling, improper rim parts and sealing procedures and even chroming. The best way to prevent these problems is to have HRE Wheels service your wheels exclusively. In addition, having a non-certified HRE shop do these procedures will void your Structural and Finish warranties. For more information, contact us directly.
Basically, yes - but that's assuming you want to take your BMW X5M or Rolls-Royce to the track as well as your Ferrari. In most cases, certain wheels are more likely to be chosen for weekend track day vehicles such as a Series RC1 or R101, and a Luxury wheel like a S2 would not. At HRE we design every wheel with the same attention to detail and a focus on making sure any wheel you do choose, lasts for many years to come.
Generally speaking, we do not offer sponsorships. But if you are working on a noteworthy vehicle that you think we should consider, please send us a detailed description of your vehicle including professional rendering, modifications to be completed as well as why other automotive enthusiasts follow your lead to email@example.com
Please send your images to firstname.lastname@example.org
Images should be at least 1200 pixels x 800 pixels at 72 dpi, show the whole vehicle and wheels clearly.
Vehicles with older HRE wheels may not make it to the Gallery but please send them to us anyways - we may post them on our Instagram, Facebook or other social media channels! Please check our wheels section to find out if your wheel is in our current collection.
