Universal Fit, 18 Inch Wheel Diameter, Aluminum, 6" Width, 5x4.75 in. Wheel Bolt Pattern (in.)
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.
