Every year premier wheel maker HRE hosts its annual open house at its headquarters in the San Diego suburb of Vista, CA. Known for creating custom manufactured high-end wheels for a wide variety of past to present exotic rides, each set of built-to-order HRE rollers start as a forged blank before being precisely machined by million dollar machines to then be finalized with a hand-finish and powder/clear coat. The result: some of the most baller wheels on the planet. The aesthetics of HRE's 1-piece and 3-piece forged aluminum alloy wheels are the choice of many luxury and exotic car owners, but fitments for Euro, Asian, and Domestic vehicles are also available. Each is given the same attention and detail for a strong and durable end product.

During the latest HRE Open House, hordes of car junkies filled the coned-off parking lots to chat aftermarket wheels and get a rare glimpse inside the 60,000-square foot TUV-approved facility. For those wondering what "TUV-approved" means, it is a European auditing and certification that ensures wheels meet international ECE Regulations. A variety of cars showed up from exotics to hybrids, but the murdered out Ferrari F40 and the Egarage chrome wrapped RWB Porsche struck our fancy. We also ran into our good friend and import model Marissa Hiroko who was featured in last year's August issue.If your ride needs fresh wheels and you have the dough, you definitely want to check out the HRE catalog of wheels. Maybe one day we can afford the 501 from the Vintage series. One day.

There were Hondas on deck at Tokyo Auto Salon, but Osaka Auto Messe has a way of highlighting some of the older chassis—the classic chassis—the ones you and I love seeing built.
