Hardrock Offroad H803 Series Wheels
About The H803
The Hardrock H803 Famous Forged wheel is designed to showcase your ride. We know that many of our customers put style and love everywhere they can on their rides. This includes the rotors, springs and braking systems that sit behind the wheels. The H803 is a clean and stylish wheel with large view corridors to the equipment behind. The forged wheel features 8 lean spokes that have step-back edge treatment to further reduce their visual mass impact. The goal was to look good without overwhelming the onlooker with complex design patterns. This wheel is about looking strong while allowing other components to complement it and the vehicle.
We are able to create this lean design by forging the wheel instead of using the casting method. To do this a slab of aluminum is compressed and rolled making it considerably denser. This stronger material is then carved and machined into a wheel. The compressed aluminum weighs virtually the same based on volume but there are dramatic increases 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 less than their counterparts. Over the life of your car, that will translate into better gas mileage.
We offer the Hardrock H803 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. Black and silver are always a very popular durable finish. The wheels looks just as amazing thrashing around off road as they would rolling into a car show.
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.
Roll with Style
We offer the H803 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.
