In the late '50s, the original five-spoke American Racing Torq Thrust ® wheel was introduced. It is considered by many to be the most famous drag and hot rod wheel of all time. Now, more than 50 years later, American Racing continues its tradition of excellence in period correct and custom wheels for hot rods, muscle cars and restoration applications.
Thanks to the American Racing Web site for this info.
Of course, this wheel is no longer a collectors item but nonetheless, it brings back memories of youth...of fast cars and chrome wheels.
