18" HRE Monoblock Track/Race Wheels - Designed by Fall-Line & Built by HRE

Guys!

It is finally here. The Perfect Track Wheel....

These Satin Black Thing of beauty is designed by the good fellas at Fall-Line Motorsports and built by HRE for the sole purpose of Racing.

When Fall-Line set out to develop the perfect set of racing wheels, they had very specific goals. They had to build wheels that are reliable, strong and light weight with features dedicated towards racing, especially the Grand-Am Koni Challenge. The design study was strictly focused on minimizing unsprung weight and rotational inertia, as well as being sturdy and strong enough to withstand the rigors of the Grand-Am Koni Challenge.

The result is an 18" Monoblock wheel, built by HRE for Fall-Line...



The wheels are specifically designed for the Grand-Am Koni Challenge, which means that use 275/30-19 Hoosier Koni Racing slicks on all four corners for the perfect neutral handling. These wheels house the Monoblock (cut-in half and bolted together; Grand-Am regulations) brakes by Alcons in the front.

Here are the specs:
Material: 100% Forged Heat treated T6061 Aerospace Grade Aluminum
Front size/weight: 18 - 9.5 (20lbs)
Rear size/weight: 18 - 10.0 (20.5lbs)
Features:
- Big Brake Clearance (including Alcon / Brembo / Stop Tech)
- modified center for fast pit-stop / Wheel change
- weight reduction by material removal on hub / spokes
- built to work with both street lug bolts(extended) and studs for easy swap

Recommended Tire size: 275/35-18 on all four corners!

Colors: Currently in Satin Black / available in many other finishes.

Available through none other than WheelSTO!

Much Thanks to Mark, Steve and the crew at Fall-Line Motorsports for making all this possible and for the opportunity for us to offer them to the others.

Here are some pictures:

Wheels are gorgeous, I love em! You may want to edit the tire spec: "Recommended Tire size: 275/30-19 on all four corners!"

BTW Fall-Line is an incredible shop. I been there while visiting family in Chicago.

Thanks.... some one caught that too on our vendor/for sale section.

the recommended tires are 275/35-18 all around. Of course you could fit some others if you'd like.
