What kinda wheel is this?
 
I've asked pretty much everyone I know, and including 2 other message boards. Nobody seems to have an idea as to what brand these things are. It's obvious that they're a Cragar S/S look-a-like.Hopefully someone here knows. Somebody said "Appliance" based on the cut out for the washer, but I could not find anything conclusive. I realize they're in bad shape, but maybe I got something truly rare here.

Possibly Mr. Gasket Pro Stock "Cragar Clones", spokes don't have enough ridge to be Rocket's. Just abpout EVERYBODY made a wheel that style back in the 70's. Keystone, ET, etc. Sears and Montgomery Ward even had their own line of wheels. Definitely not vintage Cragar's though, too much chrome left on them..........

If you want to clean them up easily get you some fine steel wool and a coulple cans of Coca~Cola dip the steel wool in the coke and scrub away the rust :thumbup:

did you look on the inside of them and see if there are some numbers and/or name stamped there?

Like Hippie says...Looks like it could be an old Appliance make, the chrome wasn't the best, inexpensive wheels.

"Ditto" on the Appliance. Back in the day, when you could not afford Cragars, you went the next best and bought Appliances. Same thing today with American Racing TTII's and American Eagle knockoffs of the same.

Ahhh back in the day........Hi Honey I'm heading out. Where are you going? ..... Oh just out to pick up some new appliances........

Well I hit the back of them with some wheel acid from work and pressure washed them. Found a load rating stamp and the word "RAIDER"

Kevin45 10-12-2007 02:07 AM

If it's a Raider then it's a Keystone wheel.
