All HPD Wheel brands: HD Wheels, HD Off-Road, Fathom Wheels, Klassik Rader, & Remington® Off-Road Wheels are designed at our main facility here in Plant City, Florida.
Every design destined for one of these 5 brands are relentlessly scrutinized for uniqueness, design longevity, and fitment & application range.
Most of our designs for each brand are planned out through the year, while others are often developed organically from a simple sketch on a cocktail napkin.
FEA - Finite Element Analysis is a simulation program that can be used alongside traditional testing to analyze the strength of complex structures and systems, determine component behavior, and accurately predict how products will react under structural and thermal loads.This FEA process allows us to stress test each HD, HD Off-Road, Fathom, Klassik Rader, & Remington® Off-Road Wheel under load in the computer to identify any problem areas or weak points in the wheel design. If weak areas are found initially, these areas can be corrected and re-tested before ever going into mold production thanks to the FEA testing computer program. See examples below of FEA program below.
