The Cragar S/S wheel was introduced in 1964, giving hot rodders an alternative to magnesium racing wheels and factory-style steel wheels. With nearly 60 years of heritage, the Cragar S/S wheel continues to be a popular option.
Cragar builds these wheels using a cast aluminum center with steel lugs built in. Those lugs are welded to a steel rim for a super strong design, compared to other aftermarket wheels.
Even though the wheels have never been extremely light, they have been a popular choice for drag racing. They rolled beneath thousands of Super Stock drag cars, Gassers and even a few Funny Cars back in the 1960's and 1970's. With pictures plastered all over Hot Rod Magazine (and other influential car magazines of the day), people wanted to replicate that awesome appearance on their street car.
The show-quality chrome finish gives it a great appearance and offers super easy clean-up compared to the constant polishing of aluminum or magnesium wheels.
