BMW X5 Rolling On HRE Performance Wheels’ Custom Forged P101 Wheels!

HRE Performance Wheels of the USA! They’re the makers of the world’s most refined forged wheels in the industry!  “To create the best you must start with the best”. What this really means is at every step, HRE don’t cut corners and are continually trying to improve their materials, processes, facility and team to make sure it stays that way. They begin with a team of specialists that design and engineer every HRE from sketch to testing, programming and prototyping. From there, only the best materials are used from their forgings, assembly hardware and powder coats. Following that, their artisans hand prep and brush every wheel by hand spending hours perfecting finishes that only HRE can offer. Soon after, the wheels move to a hand washing process that again shows the care and attention to detail needed to produce our finishes which produces astonishing yet durable colors that complement even the most exclusive vehicles in the world.

What is a custom forged wheel?

Forged rims are made from solid aluminum billets. Aluminum billets are heated (but not melted) to allow craftsmen to forge them into shapes of wheels rims. Cast rims, on the other hand, are made from aluminum melted into a liquid form and then poured into molds for cooling. The stucture and strength of solid aluminum is by all means superior to that of liquid aluminum. Being produced with intense pressure, forged wheel rims are 3 times stronger than cast ones. In addition, forged rims are light (25~30% lighter than cast rims), impact-resistant and durable, which are musts for reducing the total weight of a car and lead to better performance & control.

The Series P1 is HRE’s best-selling series of forged wheels for good reason. In designing the Series P1, they’ve set out to create the ultimate street-performance wheels by combining the purposeful lightweight design of our race wheels with an unmatched level of sophisticated design. Building on the successful 3-piece Series S1, we refined those designs into a lightweight Monoblok platform, resulting in an unparalleled blend of style and performance. He also requested the wheel to be finished in an optional Brushed Dark Clear finish which was an additional cost and to us, the finish is HRE’s most opulent brushed finish.

With him confirming his selection, we submitted our order to HRE and they immediately began the manufacture of the wheels, tailored exactly to the cars proportions. Total manufacture time took less than 4 weeks and was completed before his X5 was even delivered! When we took delivery of the wheels, we had them wrapped up with a set of Pirelli’s Scorpion Zero rubbers and balanced out all four wheels before shipping the wheels to our client via air cargo on the same day!

He fitted the 22 inch wheels on his X5 about a month later after his X5 was delivered and the results were absolutely amazing! The 22 inch wheel only weighed 11 kilograms which was an amazing weight figure given that other 22 inch wheels would typically weigh about 15 kilograms. Forged and Made in their San Diego, California facility, forged wheels don’t get any better than this!
