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!

Winter Prep

Posted on November 9, 2015 – 2:32 pm

Winter is just around the corner and with temperatures beginning to dip below Summer tire performance tolerances in parts of the country it’s time for some of our Audi customers to begin switching out their stock wheels and tires for dedicated Winter rollers. It’s Audi allroad day today at Achtuning with Justin’s C5 allroad getting one of the OEM Audi Winter Wheel and Tire packages we have available…

… and Tom’s B8 allroad now sportin’ HTT-256-MA:M Hartmann Wheels.

Tom also had us install H&R Sport Springs for the allroad which changed the nose-bleed section 5″ wheel gap, bringing it down to a more eye pleasing 2″ gap while 15mm front and 20mm rear TrakPlus® wheel spacers from H&R allow the new tires and the fender’s edge to get better acquainted for an over-all sportier look. What do you think?

Inexpensive MB-Style Wheels an Alternative for Winter Wheels

Posted on October 21, 2010 – 12:47 pm

At current pricing, Mercedes-style Hartmann Wheels are a great option for Winter Wheels. John had been shopping for wheels to roll before the weather started getting bad and he ended up selecting the Hartmann MB-283 Wheels. The machined finish on the wheel ties in the chrome accents quite well and is a great contrast to the OEM Fresco Green color!

Are you ready for Winter?

Posted on October 11, 2010 – 12:57 pm

Don’t let this year’s winter weather catch you by surprise! It’s not too early to start thinking about your winter wheel & tire needs and many of you are already getting a head start in preparation for a possible wet and snowy season. Take Ty for example, as he selected Hartmann HR8-MS wheels in 18×8 for his Audi (B7) S4…

The Hartmann HR8-MS wheel is lightweight at only 21 lbs. and a very easy design to keep clean for the winter months. Ty had his Tire Rack order sent directly to us for free mounting & balancing, a service that has been very useful for many of our clients looking for a winter specific set-up. Don’t let this winter sneak up on you!

Hartmann 172 Wheels perfect for winter

Posted on January 9, 2009 – 12:12 pm

Easy to clean and it’s simplistic design were the reasons James selected the C5 RS6-styled Hartmann HRS6-172-GS Wheels for his wife’s Imola B6 Audi S4 Avant. At 18×8 with a 32mm offset, the stance for a stock ride height S4 was just right.

A look at Audi’s B8 S5

Posted on October 24, 2008 – 2:47 pm

Got a chance to get an up-close and personal look at the B8 Audi S5 today…

What a gorgeous car!! Ian brought us his Audi S5 as he is looking to pick up a set of 18″ HRS4-252-GS wheels for the up-coming winter season. We sat down with him and worked out some good numbers and will wait for his winter tires to arrive from Tire Rack before we can update you with his winter-wheel look. We are also working out a deal on some Ohlins coil-overs and our Hartmann HS5-209-GA:M wheels by the time Spring arrives. In the meantime, my up-close-and-personal pictures of the S5 as I got to know it a bit more…

Fantastic interior with the red leather, brushed aluminum, and carbon fiber accent pieces!!

Brushed aluminum accents are also carried on outside the car, with front and rear valence splitters and brushed mirror covers.

Ian also has European headlight and tail light assemblies on order that we will help him install, the rears I assume will be upgraded to an LED version.

We’re still waiting for the release of engine upgrades for the S5. We’ll update our website with more performance parts for the S5 as they become available. In the meantime, not a bad-lookin’ stock engine bay to look at…

Stay tuned for more updates to Ian’s S5 when he comes in for winter wheels and spacers some time next week!
