It was in May of 2008 when we first asked Audi and VW enthusiasts what they thought about a possible new style we were considering adding to the Hartmann Wheel line-up. The unique style seemed to be a hit but priorities meant we had to put the idea on hold. Similar styles and new brands have since popped up with a good portion of the automotive industry embracing the once popular mesh style from the early 80s. When our German partners were recently asked to produce a higher quality, TUV approved version 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!
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 the online store shortly.

Not very often you see one of these… That is unless I’m not looking.
James brought us his B6 A4 cabriolet to pick out a set of wheels. After a few visits to our showroom over the last few months for ECU and injector upgrades, it was determined today that the Hartmann B7 HRS4-252 MA would be his next weapon of choice for his B6 A4, 19×8.5 et38 to be exact. We wrapped them with Dunlop Sport Maxx tires in 235/35-19 and we’re all pretty happy with the results!
( ^ probably should’ve cleaned off that tire. =P)

We announced earlier last week about the arrival of one of our new wheel styles, the Hartmann HRS4-252 MA. The “M” stands for “machined” and this wheel is exactly that – a machined face with deep-colored pockets and inner wheel barrel that makes the face of the wheel “pop”.
Ryne had an interest in some of our 19″ wheels but wasn’t quite sure without seeing them in person which set-up to go with, especially with news about a container arriving from Italy with a few new styles. After installing the STaSIS coil-over kit on his B6 A4, Ryne had us install our latest Hartmann B7 HRS4 – 252-MA, the machined version of the split-seven spoke RS4 style wheel. The anthracite colored pockets and wheel barrel make the face of the wheel stand out, offering a nice contrast to Ryne’s black A4. 19×8.5 and a 38mm offset is the size available to fit the B6 A4 and the stance is just about right!

A late arriving shipment (5:00pm) meant we were gonna be in for a rather late evening unloading 800+ wheels from our recent container. We’ve been anticipating the arrival of some new Hartmann Wheel styles.
With an unusual quick pace, we were able to unload the entire container in just over 2 and a half hours, over-filling warehouse capacity.
One of the very new Hartmann Wheel styles we are excited to introduce is the all-new Hartmann HRS6 – 204 Wheel. It’s a unique multi-split 5-spoke design.
This style is being offered with a 5×112 bolt pattern in 18×8 with 32 and 20mm offsets, and 19×8.5 with 38 and 25mm offsets. These wheels also clear most big brake kits.
We are still offering the Hartmann HRS6 – 172 HC wheel and have brought in that style in an 18×8, 32mm offset – aggressive but fits most applications and also has clearance for most big brake applications.
The Hartmann B7 HRS4-252 Wheel isn’t new to us, however the new “-M” anthracite/machined finish is definitely something we haven’t offered yet. This new finish offers a touch more class to an already classy wheel.
The Hartmann B7-HRS4-252-M is offered only in a 19×8.5 size and 38mm offset and is listed at $295 per wheel.
Remember our Hartmann HRS4 – DTM? The continuing style has been brought in a half-inch wider at 8.5 in the 18″ diameter. The 18×8.5 is offered with a 38mm offset as well as a 25mm for the new B8 chassis.
Updates are being made to the Achtuning Online Catalog as I type this. We will bring in a few customer cars to test-fit some of our new wheels and we’ll update our posts and gallery with pictures as they become available.
Feel free to contact us directly if you have any fitment questions. Wheels are ready to ship!!

Last Friday I mentioned we got another sneak-peak at the B8 A5. This silver S-Line was brought to us by a potential customer who was kind enough to let us take a brake template from his car so we can get a good idea of the types of wheels we’ll have available for this car.
Of course we had to take as many pictures as we could to “soak-in” the beauty that is the B8 A5…
The 66.6mm center bore and high offset specs on the B8 A5s make it difficult for the majority of our current line-up to fit so we’re working on bringing in some new wheels…
We then took the new Hartmann HS5-209 wheel in 19×8.5 (et25) and threw on a set for comparison. The factory wheel is the same diameter and width but 7mm further in so you can see how a 7mm difference in offset gives the car just that slight “edge” and makes for a bit of an aggressive look.
The car will be back to have H&R coil-overs installed soon so you can expect updated pictures then.

Keeping with tradition, we of course had another busy Friday today. Almost every US-represented German make showed up for one thing or another…
First we have Definitive Motors bringing by a Mercedes SLK280. The Hartmann 280B Wheel is a replica of a wheel found on an SLK55 and was a great “upgrade” for this car at only $240 a wheel!!
Christian brought us his 2008 Audi A3 tFSI. This black-on-black beauty received STaSIS Streetsport Coil-Overs midly dropping the car and giving it the stance most of enthusiasts are after. Wheels are apparently next on the list although the stock wheels still look good on this application…
APR chipping is almost a daily occurrence at Achtuning…
An Audi C5 A6 4.2L currently sits on the lift as it is getting the StopTech Stage 2 brake upgrade. When in need of new rotors and pads, StopTech’s stage kits offer a complete package with better stopping power.
Is the weekend here yet?? =P

Jose stopped by yesterday to pick up a set of our 19×8.5″ Hartmann HR8 wheels for his Mk5 GLI. They are a 48mm offset wrapped with 235/35-19 Bridgestone Potenza RE750 tires. With the future plans Jose has in store for his Jetta, I’m excited to see how the wheels will further compliment the car. On to pics…
