Unless a wheel company can provide one like it, they cannot be considered TUV certified. Props to HRE for this great achievement.
Our manufacturing facilities are ISO 9001:2000 certified. Our wheels are leaving for TUV testing this month and we should have our first TUV certification very soon will post the certificate and KBA number as soon as it's completed.
Gene has had no affiliation with HRE since 1997. The current wheels, technology, processes, facility, culture, and definitely the TUV certs had nothing to do with Gene. Sorry
