Ahh, Vista, California. Home to dense tree groves, a rich local art scene, and perhaps more excitingly, HRE Performance Wheels. Once a year, HRE display some of the hottest exotic cars in their warehouse and open their doors to the public. As it wasn’t enough to walk into HRE’s building to check these cars out, they surround their facility with more of the hottest exotic cars, and host a car show that fills what space remains with show cars of all types, all for spectators to enjoy completely free. This annual event is dubbed HRE Open House, or fondly referred to as “HREOH”, and lives up to its name.
HRE offer visitors the chance to see into their machining process and check out their warehouse racks that their display cars are parked in between. Tours and informational seminars are given, giving users even more information about HRE Wheels or relevant automotive facts.
They even have an RC race track. I mean, c’mon…how cool is that?
This particular HREOH was a rather special one, because it debuted the new HRE3D+ wheels, as well as the latest additions to the FlowForm lineup, FF10 and FF11, right in the hands of the public (literally). For more information on the innovative technology behind the industry’s first 3D-printed wheels, click here.
We at ModBargains are particularly excited about the new FlowForm models, as FlowForm has become a staple of our wheel lineup. We’re eager to see the FF10 and FF11 installed on cars in our shop, so don’t hesitate on contacting us to order your set when they release soon!
HREOH has been going strong for 9 years now, and ModBargains has proudly supported many of their open houses with some of the hottest cars that come through our shop. This year, we set up the “///M Stable” as HRE put it so well, to feature some of our favorite applications of HRE wheels.
Rob (@rob.hulsey) displayed his Imola Red F80 on gold HRE 540s, proving that stance isn’t just about how low you can go. The mixture of matte/gloss gold finishes on Rob’s wheels give them a subtle, yet prominent contrast against the carbon fiber trim and Imola Red body.
Our GM Alan Wei (@aw.m4) displayed his Alpine White F82 on HRE Classic 300s. Alan’s full RevoZport carbon fiber package sets his M4 apart from the rest with a more aggressive look, and his Remus exhaust demands to be heard. The white and carbon body looks great sitting on bronze wheels, creating a clean, inspired color scheme.
Mike’s (@m5bmwf90) Marina Bay Blue F90 represents those of us who want a little more size and luxury out of our performance sedans. His RC104’s convey the classic blue-and-gold color scheme, made even better by painted trim parts by IND Style. Vogtland lowering springs mean this M5 sits lower and meaner, and a Remus Race Exhaust means it sounds lower and meaner.
Steven’s (@iamsonnik) Q60RS brought a breath of fresh JDM air to the ///M Stable, but still fit right in on his FlowForm FF04 wheels finished in Tarmac. Steven’s coilover suspension gives the car an aggressive stance, made even more impressive by his red kevlar accents. A RedSport400 that looks as mean as its initials “RS” will always have a place at our booth.
Jason’s (@killemwithkindne5s) E92 M3 turned heads with his authentic Varis diffuser and Mode Carbon trim, not to mention being 1 of 16 in existence wearing BMW Individual Monte Carlo Blue. His E92 sits perfectly on HRE’s C100 wheels, whose silvery finish brightens up the car for an overall very clean build. A full ESS supercharger kit also means that its bark matches its bite.
Thomas joined us in his M2 as well, offering a smaller ///M coupe to complement the stable. His Long Beach Blue M2 looks great with quality carbon fiber trim, and is made even better by his Tarmac FF04’s, offering a sophisticated stance that also portrays the power behind the M2.
We’re always thankful for HRE for opening their doors to host their Open House, and this year was another successful event. Huge thank you to HRE for having us – we’re already excited to attend the next one!

A big shoutout to the car owners that displayed their cars at our booth this year:
Additionally, thank you to Gabe Milori of HRE for providing us with such in-depth show coverage to feature, and Steven for supplying some great photos of our booth cars.
See you next year!
