HRE Wheels has introduced three centerlock wheel models for the Porsche 911 Turbo and GT3 in OEM and custom applications. Styles include the three piece Competition Series C90-C and C93-C, while HRE also offers a monoblok one series offering with their P40-C design.

The perfect bolt-on wheel for the new Porsche Turbo and GT3, they are available in 18- and 19-inch applications, engineered to minimize weight starting at 17 lbs. Our favorite part about HRE Wheels is their ability to do completely custom sizes and offsets along with colors and finishes.

In addition, all of HRE Wheels for the Porsche are designed to specific load ratings in the front and the rear in order to maintain the strength required by the new higher horsepower Porsches.

Official press release available after the break.

HRE Monoblok and 3-piece forged alloy wheels now available for Porsche Turbo, GT3 and other Centerlock fitments in a variety of styles and finishes.

HRE Performance Wheels has unveiled a series of forged centerlock wheels for 2010 Porsche 911 Twin Turbo and GT3 models. HRE centerlock applications include the three-piece Competition Series C90-C and C93-C and the one-piece Monoblok P40-C.

The latest HRE centerlock wheels for 2010 Porsche cars are precision engineered for ultra light weight, maximum strength and exclusive style for Street & Track applications. All HRE wheels are engineered to stringent German TÜV specs in HRE’s TÜV-approved manufacturing facility.

HRE’s three-piece Competition Series C90-C and C93-C three piece centerlock wheels are available in 18″ and 19? diameters with OE widths and offsets, or HRE can supply custom widths and offset for modified fenders or race-prepared cars. These wheels are extremely lightweight, starting at 17 lbs depending on the size. All HRE Comp Series wheels are manufactured from aerospace grade 6061-T6 aluminum, titanium hardware and feature precision engineered lightening pockets on both sides of the wheel center and spokes as well. A variety of finishes are available: centers, outer rims and inner rims can be finished in custom colors independently for a unique look to match any street or race car. Standard finishes include black, charcoal or silver powdercoat in gloss, satin or textured finishes. Brushed with tinted clearcoat is also a new finish choice.

HRE’s Monoblok™ Series P40-C wheels are made from the same forged aluminum as the Compeition Series, but in a one-piece format. Monoblok wheels are engineered to minimize unsprung mass and rotational inertia for optimal acceleration and braking performance. All Monoblok wheels are available in the same standard and optional finishes as Competition Series wheels, and all finishes are applied in-house at HRE’s 60,000 square-foot manufacturing facility in San Diego.

True to HRE’s detailed engineering reputation, Competition and Monoblok Series front and rear wheels are independently designed to specific load ratings for the new Porsches, to optimize weight savings while maintaining strength required by the new higher horsepower Porsche offerings.

In addition to these specific wheels for the 2010+ Porsche sports cars, many HRE models are available in multi-lug or centerlock formats. Call and inquire for specific fitments. Each wheel is built to order for the ultimate customizing experience.
