The latest project car in our stable, my Porsche 996 GT3 just received a fresh set of gloss black 18″ HRE R40 Monoblock wheels.
The R40 was designed for motorsports and is used by countless teams in both drifting and Grand Am. The HRE R40 starts with super lightweight 6061 castings and are engineered to be as light as possible without sacrificing strength, all while offering maximum brake clearance. This particular set weighs in at just over 18lbs front and 20lbs rear, saving over 30lbs of rotational weight from the vehicle.
Titan Motorsports carries the complete line of HRE custom forged wheels for all applications, let one of our sales staff help the right wheel and finish for you.

HRE recently introduced its 18″ Forged R40 Motorsport wheel to the public, and we wanted to make sure we were the first to get a set. HRE unleashes a direct descendant of the wheel that won the 2010 Grand-Am GS Championship, now lighter, stronger and better ever and ready for competition. What better car to show off this great new wheel than Nero’s personal E92 M3 street car, which sees the race track from time to time for Drivers Education events.
HRE Performance Wheels has unveiled a NEW forged one-piece motorsport wheel for 2011, the R40 Monoblok™ for dedicated track and the highest performance street cars. This mesh-style, 6061-T6 aerospace grade aluminum wheel is a direct descendant of the custom-built model used by Fall-Line Motorsports to WIN the 2010 Grand-Am GS Championship in BMW M3 race cars, but now it’s available in a brand new mesh style for a wide range of applications and lighter than ever (17.5 lbs and up).
HRE R40 wheels are precision engineered to stringent German TÜV specifications in HRE’s TÜV-approved manufacturing facility for ultra light weight, high strength and unsurpassed quality. Available finishes include Satin Black, Satin Silver, Brushed with Clearcoat and more. The R40 is available in 18” diameter and widths ranging from 8.5” – 12” in Multi-lug and Center Lock versions. HRE engineers know the race can be won in the pits, so be sure to note the rattle-gun friendly open dish shape for fast wheel changes!
All HRE wheels are engineered to minimize unsprung mass and rotational inertia for optimal acceleration, handling and braking performance. Each wheel is built-to-order at HRE’s 60,000 square foot manufacturing facility for the ultimate performance solution and custom-tailored wheel buying experience. We carry the entire line of HRE Performance wheels here at Titan Motorsports, both for street and track. Call us today for the best pricing and fitment options for your vehicle.
