Hardrock Offroad H802 Series Wheels
About The H802
The Hardrock H802 Famous Forged wheels are a take on a classic beauty. It has sixteen evenly spaced thin spokes that sunburst out from the hub. This perfectly symmetrical design is as structurally sound as a spoked wheel can be. Weight is distributed evenly across the barrel and hub all while maintaining the shortest possible length of the individual spokes. Impact and motion stress has a direct line to the axel. It is truly the most efficient design method possible.
To further strengthen the design, the wheel is forged instead of being cast. This means a slab of aluminum is compressed and rolled making it considerably denser. This stronger material is then carved and machined into a wheel. Denser aluminum adds very little weight to each unit of mass especially when compared to the large increase in strength. The beauty of this is that wheels manufactured using the forged method can use less material while maintaining improved durability. So we design wheels with thinner components that are lighter and stronger than bulkier cast wheels. Both methods work, but well designed forged wheels will weigh several pounds lighter. Over the life of your car, that will translate into better gas mileage over their heavier cast competition.
We offer the Hardrock H802 in gloss black milled and a polished finish. For the black version, the wheel is powder coated and then milled along the opening created by the spokes. This gives the wheel powerful contrasting accents. It is a very popular durable finish that looks as good rolling through mud as it does pulling up to the Ritz.
The polished finish takes the raw carved aluminum and smooths it to a sheen. This is a very popular treatment for forged wheels in general. It’s a tip of the hat to the days when metal was hammered into shapes over a hot forge. The craftsmanship is enough on its own without any additional materials.
We offer the H802 by Famous Forged in a broad assortment of 5, 6 and 8 lug fitments for your off road needs. It has that hammered out in a forge appeal to it. The wheel is perfect to show off everything great about your ride. It will look great on your Jeep Wrangler. When your Chevy is tricked out and mean as hell, the H802 makes sure the world knows.
