We followed a set of HRE RS309 Wheels in production and took some photos during the process.

Rim parts are pulled, forgings are lathed, and everything is placed onto a cart so we can keep track of their progress.










What you see below is so we can limit how much mass the wheel has. More pockets, less weight!










Center Forgings jump onto our Horizontal mills to get their design cut
































Now we start the process of de-burring the wheel, smoothing it out and then getting that into our polisher!








Onto Polishing!


Nice and shiny!!










After we clean up the centers after their polishing, we bring them over to powdercoat








Out from powder! First stage of powdercoat is shot, second stage will be the Satin Clear Coat to turn this into our Frozen Polished Bronze finish






Second stage of powder is applied and now you can see they're Satin in this photo






Assembly starting. First things first, remove the cover on the backpad. Backpads should never be powdercoated as that alters the offset which was machined.








Fasteners going in! We're in the home stretch!












Blue tape on the lip to protect it from scratches.






And that's it! We have a complete set of HRE RS309's! Once it's all said and done, the Polished Bronze outer and that Frozen Polished Bronze center really work for each other. We want to know what you think! Here's the completed wheel!






















Thanks for taking a look! What do you think of the RS309? You like our color combo choice?
