HRE wheels -best wheels ever...

Hi,

Something happen and I like to tell you what....

I had have HRE wheels. And it is common to have good wheels But my centers in crack a little in one place near screw hole - and it is common sometimes too. I like to buy new centers as it was 3 pcs rims and I like this wheels ! So I contact with HRE wheels and the ask me about numbers of my wheels and kindly inform me that my wheels cover lifetime structural warranty. Ok I think let see what happen. After maybe 6 weeks I have my new HRE wheels here! What a service! I like to buy just new centers ! And what a surprise I have set of new rims instead ( and free of charge!) . Thank you HRE Wheels!
Best service ever.... I am impressed !

Not very many companies offer that kind of service in this "throw away" society, congratulations to you, and kuddos to HRE for standing behind thier products.

i own two sets of the HRE wheels i use them for my LS7 948 . i think there the 501's they look like the old BBS wheels .
there a good wheel i had one rear wheel that would keep bleeding down when i had new slicks mounted it still keep loseing air so i know it was not the old tires . i sent the rim back and they repaired it no charge .

Wow. Nice job on HRE. Great to hear you got replacements!

A reminder for all of us to check them wheels for cracks. Not good.

Congrats!

Take care!

HRE has always had good customer service and a great warranty. I took a few leaking wheels down to them in Vista, CA, when I went down to pick up some inners and outers, and they repaired them right then and there. Wonderful people to deal with

I've had good experience with Fikse and CCW customer service. Fikse would have charged but great to deal with, CCW just cannot do enough to help you.

It's good to know good customer service is still out there and not everyone is bothered about their bottom line.

I would like to order a set of their new Vintage Series 501s, but I am quite sure a set costs 3 times what I paid for the entire car.

Vintage Series
