These Rocket Fire wheels are designed after the 6 pin drive magnesium wheels that the Indy Roadsters of the 50s and 60s dominated the track with. The Rocket Fire features the same classic six pin ribbed design, durable high-tech construction, and are precision-crafted from A356 aluminum. Originally, six pin wheels were held on by a pressure plate and knockoff. The Rocket Fire re-creates the original pressure plate and knockoff attachment but with the capability of a 5-lug bolt on and utilize conical seat open end lug nuts.

The 16x5 size allows these wheels to fit the majority of all 16" vintage tires. From the short skinny 500-16 up to the tall 825-16 tire sizes! Mix and Match the Rocket Fire with tall, skinny vintage tires to your traditional hot rod or open wheel roadster, and you've got the ultimate Indy look!
