QuattroWorld.com’s Audi RS4 on 19×10″ Hartmann HP-310s

Posted on February 18, 2014 – 11:00 am

The Audi (B5) RS4′s factory widebody allows for an aggressive wheel fitment. While the Hartmann Wheel line-up likes to boast a sportier fitment over the factory inspired options, wheel width is somewhat limited from the Audi fitment Hartmann Wheel selection. However, H&R wheel adapters allow us to step out of the proverbial box and run wheels we would otherwise throw on the back of a Porsche 911 – 19×10″ Hartmann HP-310 Wheels.

The wheels are wrapped with 275/35 rubber while 20mm front and 30mm rear H&R wheel adapters allow the wheels to fit snug beneath those wide arches. There’s room to come out a bit more up front (with say, a 25mm adapter) but it was probably best to play it safe and not test fate by allowing tires to come into contact with obsolete fenders. What do you think of the new look on QuattroWorld.com’s Audi RS4?

Audi RS7 Outfitted With 20″ Hartmann Wheels for Winter

Posted on October 28, 2013 – 4:54 pm

Randy just took delivery of his brand new Audi RS7 from University Audi and brought it in to ACHTUNING right away to have some new Hartmann Wheels installed, prepping it for the Winter months ahead.  Randy went with the 20″ Hartmann HTT-256-MA:M (matte-anthracite/machined), an easy-to-clean factory-inspired design that compliments the RS7′s body color while machined accents offer some contrast with the almost color-matched wheels.

We’ll be updating our online store with the available Hartmann Wheel options for the RS7.  Meanwhile, give us a ring at 425-895-0000 if you’d like to discuss your options!

Hartmann Wheels for the Audi SQ5

Posted on September 17, 2013 – 1:14 pm

Achtuning has several Hartmann Wheel options immediately available for Audi SQ5 fitment! Thanks to our friends at University Audi for lending us an Audi SQ5, allowing us to verify Hartmann Wheel fitment over those massive brakes! Fortunately we have a good selection of large caliper clearing wheels so your Audi SQ5 Hartmann Wheel options are plentiful! Each image will direct you to the specific Hartmann Wheel product page on Achtuning.com so feel free to begin shopping right away! (The selections below will be updated periodically with new styles and specs so check back!) 
                   

Currently available sizes range from 18″ to 20″. ( Most 18″ Hartmann Wheel options will require spacers for caliper clearance, also available at Achtuning.) Our preferred Hartmann Wheel spec for Audi SQ5 fitment are the 19×8.5 +25 and 20×9 +25 options for an “aggressive” Euro look. The 19×8.5 +38s will sit 5mm further in compared to the factory 20 or 21″ wheels – a good option for winter wheel fitment!

Wheel bolts/spacers:

Factory Audi SQ5 wheel bolt specs (R14, ball-seat 14×1.5×30) differ from Hartmann Wheels (R13, ball-seat 14×1.5×32) so you will need new wheel bolts with your Hartmann Wheel purchase. We stock said bolts at Achtuning.

Hartmann Wheels for your NEW Audi or VW!

Posted on September 6, 2013 – 12:02 pm

Audi’s new Q5 hybrid wheels are… unique.  However the simplistic styling of the OE-inspired Hartmann HRS6-172 was the preferred look for this Q5 owner and since such a style was not available when ordering their new Audi, it was arranged to have Hartmann Wheels purchased and installed as part of the deal before taking delivery from University Audi.

If you’re shopping for YOUR new Audi or Volkswagen, don’t hesitate to ask your dealer about arranging a Hartmann Wheel swap with your purchase.  :thumbup:

MKippen Photography Audi S6

Posted on June 3, 2013 – 12:12 pm

Ever since a trip to Worthersee a couple of years ago, Mike wanted a set of “rotor style” wheels for his VW CC. Unfortunately the call to Achtuning didn’t produce the result he was looking for – the Hartmann HTT-256-MA was only available in a 19″ diameter, not a 20″ – at least not yet. Fast forward a year or so later and the second it was known a 20″ size would be an option, Mike gave us a call and asked to be placed on a wait list. Even though he had since sold the CC, he felt the HTT-256-MA wheel would be a great fit for his recently purchased Audi (C6) S6. He even made a few subtle changes to the exterior of the car in preparation for the new rollers, blacking out some of the chrome for example.

A Tire Rack order of 275/30 Michelin Pilot Super Sports were sent to us for free mounting & balancing the day the Hartmann Wheel container arrived. Shortly after wheels were unloaded from the container, we asked Mike to come in so we could install the first set of 20″ Hartmann HTT-256-MA wheels on his S6. H&R coil-overs would be thrown on the following weekend before pictures would be taken but as promised, Mike came through with the end result. Without further ado, check out these gorgeous snaps from MKippen Photography!

Audi TT: New Lease On Life

Posted on May 31, 2013 – 11:15 am

Troy brought us his 2001 Audi TT that he and his family have daily driven since the car rolled off the dealer lot 12-years ago. Regular service intervals and all-around proper care kept this 150K mile roadster in great shape and has served the family well. Not yet willing to part with the car after picking up a new Audi TTRS, Troy decided to bring their beloved TT to Achtuning for a new lease on life. It was decided the TT would serve as the family’s weekend fun-mobile and eventually a dedicated track car so engine, suspension, and brakes would need attention. For phase 1 of the project we inspected the car completely and found a few items needed to be addressed before adding more go-fast bits. Once that was all done, we moved on to phase 2 with suspension and brakes. First, H&R’s Street Performance Coil-Overs would replace the TT’s original and now very worn suspension and allow the TT to corner with ease and keep the car stable. StopTech’s ST40 355mm big brake kit would serve to better stop the TT before we add more power while the popular motorsport inspired Hartmann Euromesh 4-GS wheels were mounted to clear the new, much larger brake calipers.

Phase 3 will begin in a week or so with a Techtonics Tuning down-pipe mated to a Hartmann cat-back  exhaust which will complement the APR K04 turbo that will make it’s way under the hood.

Introducing The NEW Hartmann HLP-410-GS:M Wheel

Posted on May 10, 2013 – 11:16 am

In May of 2008 we asked local Audi and Volkswagen enthusiasts about a possible new wheel style we had considered adding to the Hartmann Wheel line-up. It was clearly a hit but priorities meant we had to put the idea on hold for a bit. Since then we had seen similar styles pop up from other brands and it was clear the automotive industry was embracing the once popular mesh style from the early 80′s. Our German partners were recently asked to produce a high quality, TUV approved wheel in the design we once asked about and we jumped at the opportunity to add the retro-styled, German-quality wheel to the Hartmann line-up. While we might be a bit late to the game, we are proud to announce the latest addition to the Hartmann family – the HLP-410-GS:M!

4933

In similar Hartmann fashion, the low-pressure heat treated cast wheel is painted a high-gloss silver then diamond-cut machined on the face.  A clear-coat completes the process for a durable, lasting finish! Current sizes are 19×8.5 with either a +38 or +45mm offset – available to fit most of the Audi and Volkswagen models and they weigh 27 lbs. You’ll be able to find these in our online store here.
