    There was a time where HRE Wheels were the most desireable wheels on the market. They had an unbeatable combination of looks, pricing, and performance. Along the way something happened and HRE has moved away from performance and focused more on profit margins. Their new RS2M and RS3M series of wheels retail for $2100 per rim. Why? What justifies that price tag? Are they lightweight? No. Do the have some sort of technologically advanced materials? No. Do they offer a new or stunning design? No. Frankly, you would be hard pressed to tell this is a new wheel line unless HRE told you. Here is what HRE's president had to say about them. Translation: We ran out of ideas and this is a cheap way to reintroduce our same old tired designs at a premium. As a matter of fact, I remember those lines of his on a previous wheel line introduction. He is using the same lines from a 2015 wheel release: http://www.boostaddict.com/content.php?6019-HRE-launches-their-new-RS1M-series-of-Monoblok-wheels-in-six-styles-RS100M-RS101M-RS102M-RS103M-RS105M-and-RS108M HRE's president then: They rearrange a few words, use the same basic press release, and here we are with a 'new' $2100 per wheel line. When was the last time HRE actually was innovative? Why aren't they offering high performance and lightweight composite rims for some of their exorbitant prices? Do not think BoostAddict has some axe to grind here as the BimmerBoost.com M3 wears HRE wheels. The thing is, when the HRE C90 wheels were purchased eight years ago they were chosen because they were the lightest on the market offering a great blend of performance, strength, weight, looks, and cost. HRE does not even bother to include what the rims weigh any longer. What happened to the performance aspect? It seems to have taken a similar tumble as their customer service. HRE just seems to be all about squeezing out every last dime by recycling as many tired designs as they can. This is stuff we have all seen before except now we get a higher price tag along with absolutely no performance benefit. BoostAddict was shocked when inquiring about current HRE wheel weights. They haven't gotten lighter, that is for sure. This article will not change anything nor will any words written by anyone as HRE is a juggernaut and too big to care. However, many enthusiasts do care how they spend their money and this one in particular is going to look elsewhere for a set of performance rims.

    A Hellcat is no joke and a tough task for any N55 even in stock form. This E82 135i has a DCT transmission and the Pure Turbos Stage 2 N55 upgrade. It also has BMW JB4 tuning as well as Fuel-It! supplemental port fuel injection. It is amazing how easily the car handles the Hellcat from a roll. Honestly, this isn't even a close race. It would be interesting to see what this 135i is trapping in the 1/4 mile.

    The other day Renntech showed that the new M177 V8 powered W213 E63 AMG S is stout and responds well to tuning. The the car is strong when tuned is not a big surprise but even stock it is doing well against some strong tuned German competition. Look at how it does in this Moscow Unlimited standing 1/2 mile event. In this first race it goes up against a tuned RS7 and beats it off the line but can not hold it off the whole way. Understandable considering how strong a tuned RS7 is. What about against a tuned CLS63 M157? It also beats it off the line but the CLS63 eventually pulls past as the traps do show it has more power. Still, for a stock car the W213 does a great job. Finally, it takes on an Evotech tuned F13 M6. The stock E63 AMG S despite having less power holds it off through the entire 1/2 mile. That is impressive. As is the stock 125.10 1/4 mile trap speed and the 153.00 1/2 mile trap speed. Yep, it's a beast.
