Introducing the Reborn & Redesigned HRE Performance Iconic 540 Forged Wheel!

In the words of Alan Peltier, the president of HRE Performance Wheels, “The 540 wasn’t just a great wheel, it’s what defined us”.

The 540 Series is one of the most iconic wheel styles HRE Performance Wheels has ever created. Originally launched in the late ’90s, the 540 Series quickly became one of HRE’s hottest sellers on cars like the E46 M3, Porsche 996 Turbo and C5 Corvette. To commemorate their 40th Anniversary in 2018, they have revived 540 mesh style, re-engineering it to work with today’s most exclusive sports cars and SUVs, bringing a little bit of the 90’s back to enjoy. The result is a better 540 ready to take on the next 20 years.

The new HRE 540 wheel design is engineered to minimize unsprung mass and rotational inertia for maximum performance and handling. Forged to perfection and designed to push the edge of both aesthetics and performance of your vehicle, watch the reborn and redesigned HRE Performance 540 Wheel in action on a BMW E46 M3 and on a BMW F82 M4 via the YouTube link above!

The HRE 540 is forged completely out of aerospace-grade 6061-T6 forged aluminum for high strength-to-weight ratio that’s designed to be as light as imaginably possible. HRE also ensures their clients and customers with a three piece wheel design that features a lifetime Limited Structural Warranty and 2 Year Finish Warranty. The iconic alloy is available in diameters ranging from 17 to 22 inches along with an additional size of 24 inches.

The 540 wheel also pioneers three outer lip design styles:

    • 540
      • Standard flange with step lip
      • Not available in 24” until late 2018
    • 540C
      • Rolled flange with step lip
    • 540R
      • Rolled flange with reverse drop center
      • Not available in 17”
