HRE Wheels has been in the wheel industry since 1978. Yes, that's right! Over 30 years.

Which means, there's a lot of HRE Wheels all over the world from the last century. If you happen to have a set of wheels, we can help you restore them back to original condition.

For those that enjoy the vintage styling of older HRE's, keep your eyes open for new products coming for 2012.

Here's some pictures of a set of HRE 505 that was fully restored to its original greatness.

Its gonna be like re-releasing Jordans. I hope the do something to make them a little bit different. I want it to happen to but I hope they aren't identical, just enough deviation to tell them apart.

I was one wrong bolt order away from owning a set of these! I am glad that it did not happen though, or I would have missed my shot at these Type 1's.

I would be interested to see how they release these again.

I think you can probably figure out the theme :) I think all of the SW will be very happy to see what we have in store.

Hey who did you sell them to? I want them back in a bad way. My other HRE's (504), which were also in perfect condition when I sold them are horrible now, I'm hoping these aren't also.

Now, who's the originator of this wheel design? HRE, Compomotive or Schmidt?
