ModBargains.com | HRE Flow Formed FF01 Wheels - Check them out!
Not sure if you've noticed the new HRE Flow formed FF01 wheels, but these wheels are HOTTTTT! What a great set up with a great looking wheel with a huge brand name. Who's interested in a set?!
Recommended fitment is the following:
Front - 20x9.5 ET35 - 255/35/20
Rear - 20x10.5 ET45 - 285/30/20
*Aggressive Rear Option - 20x11 ET45 - 285/30/20
HRE Performance Wheels' all new line of FlowForm wheels are manufactured utilizng a unique casting and forming process that creates a wheel with strength properties similar to those of a forged wheel.
The process begins with pouring molten aluminum into a mold face-side-down, where it is then rapidly cooled. By quickly cooling the metal down right after heating it up (sometimes referred to as quenching), the aluminum alloy becomes more dense, and thereby enhancing the elastic strength and durability of the wheel.
After the wheel face is formed (Fig A), it is pulled from the mold and placed into the flow-forming machine, (Fig B) which operates in a manner similar to a potters' wheel. This process stretches the barrel downward, causing the metal to "flow" into the correct "form", hence the name, and this process ultimately gives the wheel its final shape (Fig C).
This "stretching" process changes the internal grain structure of the aluminum (much like the direction of the grain makes a difference in wood), making it stronger, lighter and more precise than a non-flow-formed barrel, resulting in forged aluminum-like strength.
Thanks for looking guys! What do you think!?

Great looking wheels...but I have to disagree on putting a 285/30/20 tire on a 10.5" or 11" wide rim. You should at least use a 295/30/20.....and a 305/30/20 is perfect for the 11".
