The 540 Series is now available in our 2-Piece wheel platform. FMR® (Forged Monoblok Rim) is HRE’s proprietary one-piece aluminum forged barrel technology. Made with the same process and from the same material as our one-piece wheel forgings, 6061-T6 forged aluminum, it is mated to a forged wheel center creating the finest 2-piece forged wheel on the market today. The HRE FMR® barrel offers greater stiffness, reduced mass, higher concentricity and eliminates the air seal required of traditional three-piece wheels.
The 540 Series is one of the most iconic wheel styles we’ve ever created. Originally launched in the late ’90s, the 540 Series quickly became one of HRE’s hottest sellers on cars like the E46 M3, Porsche 996 Turbo and C5 Corvette. To commemorate our 40th Anniversary in 2018, we revived the 540 mesh style, re-engineering it to work with today’s most exclusive sports and GT cars, bringing a little bit of the 90’s back to enjoy. The result is a better 540 ready to take on the next 20 years.
