• Rocket Performance Machine to Debut New Traditional Hot Rod Wheels

      Rocket Performance Machine has announced that it will introduce two new wheel styles specifically built for traditional hot rods and muscle cars in 2011.
      The new styles are designed to preserve the classic look and feel of hot rods and muscle cars, said the company.

      The first new wheel style is called the Rocket Injector Series. Inspired by the hot rods and drag cars of the 1950s and 1960s, this wheel is precision-crafted and available with Fully Polished and Full Satin as-cast finishes. It can be used with the company’s Rocket Launcher Series wheels for a “big and little” combination on a hot rod, muscle car or vintage drag car.

      The new Rocket Injector wheel is shown fully polished.

      The Rocket Strike Series wheel is shown Fully Polished.

      The company will also introduce its Rocket Strike Series wheel, which is designed to have a clean, classic look with a single rib design. The Strike Series wheel offers a longer center cap tower that resembles the push-through center caps of wheel designs from the 1960s. It’s precision-crafted from cast, one-piece A356 aluminum and topped off with a vintage-style aluminum O-ring center cap. The wheel is available in Fully Polished and Full Satin as-cast finishes.
