Leroy's 55 Those are Fenton Wheels, 16 fins, they were very popular in the 7o's.

Leroy's 55 Those 16 fin wheels were known as Fenton Wheels, I am not sure if Fenton is the company that made them or not. I had a set on a 1968 ford pickup, but I know that back in the 70's they made a lot of them.

bigg_martin Western Wheels Cyclone. There was another model with more tighter spokes with the name Cyclone if I remember correctly.

.. The early 'Cragar 5-spoke mags' around mid 1960's, apparently for patent reasons, had the opposite spoke shape from American Racing SS 5-spokes... the Cragar spokes were fatter in the inner ends and smaller on the outer ends, opposite of A.R.'s... I didn't like those Cragars... later they switched to A.R. SS style...

.. The press-in center caps (and stock wheel covers) prolly weren't legal for dragstrip use, because they popped out easily on bumps... could hit spectators... hence the A.R. centercaps have 5 screws holding them on... of course, press-in center caps were great for the sales of replacement centercaps...!!

opelitis5 These look like my Grewal 14 vane mags that are similar to the Western Cyclone aluminum finned mags. Specs on the mags are Max wheel load 1580 lbs. with Sema 5-1A AF 345569 stamped on rear. Came in 15 x 7 and 15 x 8
inch models. Put up a thread years ago, and one reply came back that were the mags offa Mr T's van from the TV show back in the 70s or 80s.

tatoojeff2 [quote=Northstar T;1625026]Does anyone here recognize these wheels? they have Cragar center caps, but no name on the wheels themselves at all. I've never seen a Cragar anything like these, so caps may well be added later. they are 14x7 aluminum and have 16 spokes. I was told they were purchased around 1978, but not even positive on that. I plan to sell them before long, but would like to know more about them first.

Thanks,

Waksabi Finishing up a 79 lesebre. The wheels are going to be polished up. However one is damaged from hitting a curb. I need one wheel of this sort. Who makes them? What are they? Thank you.



This buick is turning out nice.

skipper454 Looks like I just purchased the same wheel (new old stock in box) - 14x7 manufactured by Supperior Industries out of Van Nuy's CA.

Hey Russ! They sort of look like some ET Mags with universal lug holes and, I think they where made of Magnesium.
I bought them in the Early 80's and they were 14X7 that I had on my Pontiac 72 Ventura. Just thought I 'd put that out there.
