One of Formula Drift’s iconic figures, Vaughn Gittin Jr., is a hero for a lot of fans in the automotive world. RTR is his brand and vision for the Ford Mustang. Gittin takes the best of all automotive cultures and expresses them in that brand. Known for his black and lime green livery representing the Monster Energy Nitto Tire Ford Mustang RTR, it is very hard to forget who this guy is. Gittin recently announced he’s teaming up with HRE to offer exclusive wheels for the RTR line. The partnership will allow RTR to provide more colors and options to their customers with these products.
At the SEMA, HRE showed off the two wheels in the RTR line, the multi-piece Tech 7 which features Gittin’s signature lime green color, and the monoblock Tech Mesh. Both only come in 20” inch sizing.
Another big player in the performance and muscle car scene, with their outstanding custom builds, Ringbrothers, has had a good relationships with HRE as well. HRE and Ringbrothers, collaborated for two wheels in the past. For 2015, they unveiled a third Ringrothers HRE wheel, the Recoil, offered in diameters from 18-22-inches. The ring that attaches all the spokes together is a Ringbrothers styling feature, tying the builder’s name into the wheel.
Through these collaborative efforts, HRE has shown how they can work with a variety of different styles and segments in the performance world, showing that they offer something for nearly every enthusiast. With these two partnerships continuing into the future, things look bright for HRE, their partners, and enthusiasts.
