Old School OE Meets Modern Style Thanks to Wheel Vintiques
Wheels, wheels and more wheels. That’s the hard part about SEMA. Heck, there’s a complete section of the SEMA dedicated to wheels and tires. The great thing is that, instead of wandering row after row of blinged-out 22-inch rims and emaciated Asian girls wearing plastic micro-mini skirts (unless you’re into that sort of thing), we found these awesome retro rims from Wheel Vintiques over in the performance parts section, and that should mean something!
To you’re right, you’ll see a cross section of all the OE-correct style rims that have been licensed to Wheel Vintiques. At the very top is their “Hot Rod Rally” 40 Series rim. Featured on the HPP Camaro and Firebird at the SEMA show, these rims can be ordered from 14-inch through 18-inches and are available in either black chrome, chrome or in 12 different choices of powder coating. Of course, Wheel Vintiques makes their own beauty caps and trim rings, so every part of these wheels are guaranteed to share the same level of quality.
Below that big Rally is Wheel Vintiques selection of Mustang rims. Wheel Vintiques has been making rocking Magnum-style rims for years, so their Mustang Magnum was a sure bet. But check out their Style Steel and GT Rally rims! Not only are they OE-correct in styling but made from better raw steel and feature superior chroming and detail than what you could expect from the factory 40 years ago.
Of course, if you’re looking for a more customized look for your Mustang, Wheel Vintiques’ Billet Mag 500 and Billet Style Steel rims are perfect candidates for your classic pony (or, if you’re really cool, your current retro-inspired ’11 BOSS).
But what caught our eye was Wheel Vintiques resurrection of the Hertz Wheel. For those building a period-correct restoration, this 14-inch rim is a must have! Of course, they also have all the center caps for whatever Mustang you’re wanting to build (GT350 caps are available too)!
And not surprisingly enough, Wheel Vintiques opened up their Mopar selection a bit wider by recreating two of Mopar’s most subdued but still way cool steel rims, the all-black steel Chrysler OE rim (found on the ’69 1/2 Super Bee 440 Six-pack and Road Runner 440 6BBL A12 Series) and the Chrysler Police rim. Both of these steel rims come in a Satin Black finish and are available with either a Mopar OE “dog dish” cap or a Mopar Baby Moon cap.
