American Racing Wheels and Rims




    The story of American Racing began in 1956, when a drag racing innovator Romeo Palamides joined his efforts with J.O. Ellison and Tom Griffith to create high-strength racing wheels. Today, American Racing is one of the members of the Wheel Pro family. The company shares its profound knowledge and invaluable experiences with the sister brands Moto Metal, Helo, Lorenzo, and XD-Series. Together, they create the revolutionary wheels and win more and more devoted admirers all over the globe.

    In the late fifties, American Racing made big waves in the aftermarket wheel market with their iconic wedge-shaped Torq Thrust wheel, one of the few worldwide-known rims. For over fifty years, American Racing has been at the forefront of the industry. The American Racing wheels are offered in a full selection of black-powder coated and chrome design solutions, available in the sizes ranging from 15 inches to 24 inches.

    American Racing was also among the first to manufacture wheels featuring five spokes, which became one of the most popular designs. A five-spoke design allows a wheel to weight much less, reducing thus the unsprung mass, which is the worst enemy of handling.

    The open design of a 5-spoke wheel also allows the brakes to cool more efficiently, increasing their performance and giving you an opportunity to drive deep into turns without having to worry about overheating. Simply put, the magnificent design and rich heritage make American Racing wheels the perfect choice for nearly all vehicles on the road today.

    I have ordered from CARiD in the past and the service has been exceptional. This time however, the rims took longer to be shipped than customary. I love the way the rims look on my truck and the price was very reasonable. But, my tire installer informed me that one out of four rims could not be balanced. He further said that if that one unbalanced rim were to be placed at the back wheel of the truck, it is quite possible that the ride would be unaffected. So far I notice no vibration from the unbalanced wheel. I would have shipped it back but I live in Canada and the procedure would have been too time consuming.
