Porsche 911 GT3 HRE 101 Forged Wheels

A new dedication to performance.

Racing and performance driving is engrained in the history of the HRE Performance Wheels. Their wheels have been used globally as racers try to grab the checkered flag and their latest Series R1 wheels are the next step in the evolution of racing and performance wheels.

“Motorsport and performance is at the core of every HRE Wheel,” said HRE President Alan Peltier. “The R1 is a culmination of years of supplying teams with a wheel that can last multiple seasons and take on the most challenging forms of motorsport, while still being incredibly lightweight.”

The new R1 Series wheels are a result of years of testing with the racing teams that employed the R34 wheels such as Fall-Line Motorsports and Rum Bum Racing in the Continental Tire Sports Car series. These wheels helped both teams take home the championship four out of the past five years including the 2014 driver, team, and manufacturer titles in the GS-category.

One of the first R1 Series wheels to make its fitment debut is the R101 on a 997.2 Porsche 911 GT3 – a perfect platform to showcase their dedication to performance.

The new HRE R101 forged monoblock wheels were designed to take intricate and complex design cues from the HRE Street line wheels and pair it up with advanced motorsports and performance engineering. The result is a head-turning wheel with low unsprung mass and rotational inertia for optimum performance.

On the white Porsche 911 GT3, the new HRE R101 forged monoblock wheels were installed in a wide 9.5 x 18 front and 12.0 x 18 rear for a big, asphalt-grabbing footprint. Each wheel also wears a contrasting Tajima Blue finish and includes the center-locking hardware to keep weight to a minimum as the factory setup.

With its new set of Tajima Blue HRE R101 forged wheels, this Porsche 911 GT3 is ready to tear up the racetrack.
