As companies go, you can’t get much more American than Remington.
Remington has been manufacturing firearms and ammunition in the United States since 1816—nearly 200 years! It’s the only U.S. company that produces both firearms and ammunition domestically and is currently the largest U.S. producer of shotguns and rifles. Remington’s reach also extends beyond the U.S. borders where its products are distributed in 60 different countries.
Chances are you’re already familiar with Remington if you’re an outdoor enthusiast. Now, you can bring the legendary Remington brand and heritage to your truck, ATV, UTV, golf cart, or utility trailer with Remington Wheels rims and off-road accessories. Remington and HD Wheels have teamed up to create a full line of Remington-licensed wheels and accessories designed specifically for hunters and outdoor enthusiasts.
According to Henry Gaudens, managing director of HD Wheels-Remington Brand, Remington had been looking to broaden its brand for quite some time.
“There was an open discussion about how to broaden the Remington brand and footprint with the concept of “a radius of 100 feet from the campsite,” Gaudens said. “An executive I know personally suggested wheels. Long story short, I received a phone call and within 10 days HD Wheels had been approved to become the exclusive licensee for automotive, truck, ATV, UTV, golf and utility trailer wheels along with selected accessories. With our marketing and design ability, along with our enthusiast approach, the synergy with the iconic brand was a match made in heaven.”
Currently, the Remington Wheels line includes aluminum alloy wheels to fit anything from golf carts to 1-ton trucks. The rims are available in sizes from 12 to 22 inches in diameter.
“We offer designs with a more classic look that will cater to a more mature audience, as well as more current concave designed wheels which will cater to younger enthusiasts looking to make a bolder statement,” Gaudens said. “This approach parallels the versatility and vastness of the Remington brand. We are the only wheel company in the world that incorporates its design across six distinctive enthusiast vehicle segments, including truck, Jeep, ATV, UTV, golf cart, and now utility trailer.”
The wheel designs were born from Remington’s passion for hunting and shooting sports and HD Wheels knowledge of the automotive market. Gaudens says the collaboration and partnership between the two companies are what make the wheels truly unique.
“Being avid automotive enthusiasts and avid hunting and shooting sports participants, we allowed our creativity to be influenced by melding both environments,” he said. “Each of our designs have the application and look with the hunter or shooting sports enthusiast in mind while still giving the non-outdoor sportsman or woman a modern up-to-date look to their prized possession.”
The Remington Wheels line also includes lug nuts (backed by a lifetime warranty), exhaust tips, bull bars, and a complete selection of decal kits to complete the Remington look. Gaudens says the company is currently looking at ways to expand the product line with more items to accentuate the Remington brand and lifestyle.
“(The idea) is that the Remington brand will be 200 years old come 2016, and there’s a lot of heritage, nostalgia, and pride in wearing the badge of a brand that helped build this country,” Gaudens said. “What better way to show this pride but to put the most aesthetic and functional product on your vehicle branded by Remington?”
