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.

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

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.

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.

.. 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...!!

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

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.
