6 months ago, we poised ourselves with a challenge. As wheel lovers at heart, we found ourselves reminiscing over a nearly two-decade-old HRE catalogue, wondering what it would take to bring back the “glory” days. Could the classics be revived, pulled from the grave and given new life? If so, what would it take? Most importantly, did STANCE|WORKS have the power to pull it all off; could we make it happen?
Well, as the pictures might show, we most certainly did.
3 years ago, at the beginning of 2009, the idea of STANCE|WORKS came to fruition. It was the product of frustration with the scene at the time combined with the desire to change it. What began as a grassroots blog and a forum that consisted of 10 or so friends posting day to day has grown into more than we had ever imagined. We owe our success to a lot of people; everyone who has taken the time to read the articles we write and admire the photographs we share.

What does it take to be called the “Grand-daddy” of car shows? Well, besides for longevity you certainly have to have the cars on display to back it up. This year marked the 63rd year for the Grand National Roadster Show, making it the longest running indoor car show in the world.
The absolute coolest thing about checking out the Roadster Show each year is the eclectic style of vehicles on display.
In keeping up with the day-to-day grind here at the STANCE|WORKS HQ, we have decided to keep regular updates coming in regard to what goes on behind the scenes. The past 7 days have been hectic to say the least. This past weekend, I flew to Seattle to see Nic & Stephanie Foster, as well as the rest of the SW|PNW Crew. Stephen joined Nic and I for an afternoon of shooting in what will soon be another SW Feature.
The heritage and staying power of a company are only gained through experience; gaining experience is only done by withstanding the test of time. Credibility and prowess are not gained overnight; instead they are earned. HRE Wheels has been around since 1979, and their decades of truth in engineering has cemented them as a leader in the wheel industry and as an iconic name in the automotive aftermarket.
