At the dawn of the hot rod age, a handful of innovative gear heads in hopped-up roadsters streaked across Southern California dry lakebeds in a quest for speed and glory. Those lakebeds eventually became test sites for top secret rocket planes that set long standing speed records. Now the style that started with those early hot rods has come full circle.The as cast finish is media blasted to a smooth satin finish which is perfect for the hot rod, rat rod with perfect patina or Belly Tank Lakester. These 5 window wheels originally were called mag wheels because the original construction was magnesium. The traditional styling of the Rocket Igniter will be available in Polished, Gray, and as cast finishes.
