Looking for a wheel or manufacturer

Anybody know anything about the wheel in the pic? I need to find another one of these wheels and trying to find out who made them has been tough. It has a load rating and a DOT number along with the logo like the one I created in the first pic that is on the back of the wheel. Does anyone recognize the symbol? Any info would be appreciated.

That looks like the old eagle wheel JMO. Not real sure if you can even get that wheel new anymore.

I've seen some similar designs. I know LMC makes a knock-off of the 6-lug version and black rock makes one in 5 lug.. but it's all black. U.S. Wheel has them in chrome at Summit Racing. That link will take you right to them. They probably wont be exactly the same, though.

If you just do a search for "Blade wheels" or "Eagle Blade" you can probably come across one like yours. Just takes a little detective work.

These are killer wheels, though. I actually just picked up a set of four of the machined/black Blade wheels (6 lug) in perfect condition today at a yard sale for $60 with 5 center caps. He wanted $100, but my Dad talked him down. They'll be going on my 65 soon.

That is the same wheel that I have on my Ranger pick-up, but there are no markings on the front to tell what brand it is. I will be switching wheels within the next couple of weeks, so when I pull these off, I'll look to see if there is anything on the back.

Thanks for all the input guys, I really do like these wheels, they look good on my 36 Chevy Sedan but I have one that is dented (no crack) in a bit along the bead and would like to find a replacement. That link to the summit wheel is close, but it appears to be a steel wheel, mine is a much thicker wheel and the cutouts are painted black on the inside. Again the only thing on the back that resembles a logo is shown in my first pic in post 1.
I see that dented aluminum wheels can sometimes be repaired, anybody have any experience with this?
Thanks guys,
Jeff
