Hartmann Wheels “Blem” Sale 2016 Q1: Save 20%!

Posted on February 1, 2016 – 2:00 pm

“What is a “blem” wheel?
A blem (blemished) wheel is a wheel that has been held in stock from our final inspection process, typically due to minor imperfections in the paint. These imperfections are typically quite small at around 1mm in size, they are usually due to contamination by small specks of dust or lint in the paint. These are new wheels, never have been used or even had a tire mounted.

“Are their pictures of the specific wheels available?”
We typically do not provide images of the specific wheels as the blemishes are quite small and difficult to capture on camera and it is also quite time consuming to pull the wheels and photograph each individual one. These blemishes are not visible on a casual look and only noticeable on close inspection.

“Are there wheels on sale which are not blemished?”
We also have a few sets of wheels which have had tires mounted and dismounted, usually for test fitments, photo shoots and occasionally just from a customer that changed their mind on the wheel style. These may not have any visible defects however there are telltale signs that tires have been mounted and so we choose not to sell them as “new”.

“Which ones fit my vehicle?”
This post will list all styles and sizes available, if you’re unsure of the fitment you can crosscheck with http://hartmannwheels.com/audi-wheels or http://shop.achtuning.com/Audi-Perfo…-Products.aspx. You’re also welcome to call us at 425-895-0000 or e-mail Sales@Achtuning.com. Hubcentric rings for vehicles with 57.1mm hub diameter are provided free of charge.

“Are tires available?”
We are closing out of tires and have very limited availability. We do have an option for our customers to order tires from Tire Rack and send them to our location for free mounting and balancing on their wheel purchase. We have the following sizes and styles of tires in stock:
235/45-17 Falken PT-722 $390-set
245/40-19 Falken PT-722 $700-set
245/40-18 Falken FK-452 $580-set

Outfitting New Wheels On A New Audi A3

Posted on December 29, 2015 – 9:00 am

George dropped off a new Audi A3 and picked out a set of 18″ Euromesh 4-GA (gloss-anthracite/machined) Hartmann Wheels wrapped with a set of all-season tires to replace the factory 17s.

The +45 offset leaves room for a more aggressive fit via wheel spacers if later desired, but we will leave that to George and his better half to add when the time comes.

Nick’s Golf 7 R Is Winter Ready!

Posted on December 22, 2015 – 12:09 pm

Winter is here, and Nick is well prepared for snow covered roads after picking up a set of 18×8.5″ HRS4-DTM Hartmann Wheels wrapped in Winter rubber, his new and dedicated Winter wheel set-up.

Compared to other 18″ wheel options in the Hartmann Wheel line-up for VW (Mk5-7) Golf fitment, these HRS4-DTM wheels provide a better contact patch with a half-inch wider width, allowing our customers to run a 235/40 tire. The offset of the HRS4-DTMs are perfect, putting the face of the wheel just behind the edge of the fender for an aggressive look.

An APR Stage 1 software upgrade was also added to enhance this Golf R’s performance capabilities. The extra ability to grip the road with the slightly wider tire is an added bonus!

Since they share the same wheel specs, the 18×8.5 +47 Hartmann HRS4-DTM Wheels also fit the Audi A3 and TT, in case you were wondering. Call our sales team at 425-895-0000 and pick up a set, or visit our online store and we’ll ship a set out to you right away!

Drivetrain Upgrades for the Achtuning (Mk7) GTI

Posted on December 1, 2015 – 11:53 am

Since replacing the stock IS20 turbo on the Achtuning VW (Mk7) GTI with the IS38 turbo from a Golf R we needed to eliminate weak points within the drivetrain to better put down the extra power.  An upgraded “Stage 2 Daily” clutch and flywheel from Southbend would allow us to climb through the gears without missing a beat…

… While a WaveTrac limited slip differential keeps both feet firmly planted to the ground and evenly distributing power, eliminating torque steer.

As far as we know this is the first manual transmission equipped VW (Mk7) GTI to receive the WaveTrac upgrade and we can’t wait to put the GTI through its paces on the track to test the new upgrades!

17″ Winter Wheel & Tire Package for VW Golf R

Posted on November 12, 2015 – 2:37 pm

Every chance he gets, Ted is up in the mountains during the Winter months shredding snow wherever he can. With reports of snow falling in our regional mountain passes it was time to do some Winter wheel and tire shopping for his new Golf R. While we would typically go through our Hartmann Wheel options, we thought to try on one of our OEM Winter Wheel & Tire Packages we currently have available and are pleased to see we have an option for VW (Mk5-7) GTI and Mk6/7 Golf R owners.

This OEM Volkswagen Winter wheel and tire package consists of 17×6.5 wheels with a +39mm offset and wrapped with 205/50R17 Dunlop Winter Sport 4D tires. Priced at only $1039.96 for the complete package (OEM caps included!) it’s a steal and a no-brainer decision for Ted so he can immediately head up the pass and take on those slopes!

We will be adding this Winter wheel and tire package to the Golf R category of our online store. Meanwhile, order your set by calling 425-895-0000 and our sales representatives will be happy to process your order. Feel free to call or email sales@achtuning.com if you have any questions!

HRS7-163 Hartmann Wheels

Posted on August 12, 2015 – 3:19 pm

Jason’s A4 avant as it sits on H&R “Street Performance” coilovers with our 19″ HRS7-163 Hartmann Wheels. The Achtuning “Signature Ride Height” leaves enough room for you to clear your daily obstacles without issue while allowing a more aggressive wheel offset to give the avant a more European stance.  Looks fantastic, if we are allowed to say so ourselves!

Both suspension kits and wheels are IN STOCK, ready to ship as soon as we receive your order! Call 425-895-0000 or email sales@achtuning.com.
