You may not have noticed, but the automotive world is changing. In fact, the world is changing as a whole, both for better and for worse. The Earth is heating up, and climate change has an unprecedented level of momentum. Our fossil fuels are depleting, and greenhouse gasses continue to rise. It’s estimated that our beloved cars produce nearly 20% of all global warming emissions in the United States.
In September, HRE Wheels unveiled the Classic Line, harking to the best designs of the ’90s. When asked if StanceWorks had any candidates for a first set, we knew just what to do. After wrapping a set of 309s in Nitto Invos, we mounted them to Jeremy Whittle’s E38 StanceWorks project build. Under the fluorescents of Downtown Los Angeles, we did what we do best once again.
We’ll let the video do the talking.
A large part of the automotive build process lies in the search. We scour classifieds, dig through boxes of parts, and roam junkyards looking for that thing that strikes us as “just right”. Each one of us has an image in our heads of the perfect car and it constantly infiltrates our daydreams. For some it’s a sleek black VIP car with flat lipped wheels cambered into radiused fenders.
The heritage and staying power of a company are only gained through experience; gaining experience is only done by withstanding the test of time. Credibility and prowess are not gained overnight; instead they are earned. HRE Wheels has been around since 1979, and their decades of truth in engineering has cemented them as a leader in the wheel industry and as an iconic name in the automotive aftermarket.
