HRE Shows World’s First 3D Printed Titanium Wheel

Cars, News I By Shawn Stout I November 21, 2018

HRE is not messing around. 3D printing is one of those "next big things" that makes a huge amount of sense in low-volume applications.

With aftermarket wheels, there are many variations in diameter, width, offset, design and color, and typically only two or four wheels needed at a time. In the future, what if you could design a set of wheels with your Winding Road Racing client service rep and they'd be printed and shipped the next day?
