Hot rolled steel sheets with high r–value were developed. The steel was rolled with more than 50% reduction at each final three stands near the A r3 temperature. The condition was investigated by a computer simulation model for micro–structures and a transformation texture model. Dynamically recrystallized γ with random texture transforms to α with random texture or that with {110}<001> orientation. Average r–value reaches 1.0 or more with random orientation. On the other hand, more than 1.2 of average r–value was maintained when the {110}<001> α was hot rolled giving recrystallized {112}~{111}<011> α texture.
