HRE Wheels, known for decades as being one of the finest wheel manufacturers around and the go-to choice for racing teams around the world, has recently introduced their new line of Flow-Form wheels. Offering strength properties similar to Forged wheels at a lower pricepoint, while still maintaining the high standards of HRE Performance Wheels.

Please note for the Tesla Model S, these wheels are not compatible with the P85D AWD

These wheels conform to the highest standards of quality, satisfying the strictest standards - and the wheels are designed and engineered in the United States, just 75 or so miles south of ModBargains in San Diego, CA.

As you'd expect of any HRE Wheel, they're lightweight. Fitment for the Tesla Model S (which excludes the P85D AWD), is 19x8.5 ET30 front which weighs in at 24.8lbs, and 19x10 ET40 which comes in at 24.4lbs. Recommended tire size for these are 245/45/19 fronts and 285/40/19 rears. Ask me about wheel/tire package combos too!

HRE Performance Wheels' all new line of FlowForm wheels are manufactured utilizng a unique casting and forming process that creates a wheel with strength properties similar to those of a forged wheel.

The process begins with pouring molten aluminum into a mold face-side-down, where it is then rapidly cooled. By quickly cooling the metal down right after heating it up (sometimes referred to as quenching), the aluminum alloy becomes more dense, and thereby enhancing the elastic strength and durability of the wheel.

After the wheel face is formed (Fig A), it is pulled from the mold and placed into the flow-forming machine, (Fig B) which operates in a manner similar to a potters' wheel. This process stretches the barrel downward, causing the metal to "flow" into the correct "form", hence the name, and this process ultimately gives the wheel its final shape (Fig C).

This "stretching" process changes the internal grain structure of the aluminum (much like the direction of the grain makes a difference in wood), making it stronger, lighter and more precise than a non-flow-formed barrel, resulting in forged aluminum-like strength.

The HRE FF01's shown below are in the premium finish Anthracite:
