American Racing is the original custom wheel company. Their pioneering light alloy custom wheels from the 1960's are still sought after as the most stylish wheels around for true muscle cars. The company has its roots in drag racing and no other company knows more about the art of getting power onto the pavement. Where other companies make wheels that look better than they perform, American Racing sticks with its basic performance philosophy. You can always trust American Racing wheels to be real performers. The light weight prevents them from bouncing, always staying glued to the road to get the horsepower down to the tarmac. They are shaped to cool the brakes and they are built to take the brunt of potholes and curb hits. Their design is given by the laws of nature, which makes American Racing wheels look really good.

If you are looking for truly classic custom wheels, there is no place better to go than to American Racing®, the company that invented the custom wheel! American Racing Equipment Inc. was started in 1956 by drag racer Romeo Palimedes, making magnesium rear wheels for dragsters. Their first custom wheels for road cars were introduced in the beginning of the 1960s, with the Torque Thrust, introduced in 1963 considered to be the wheel that created the custom wheel market. The Torque Thrust is one of the most copied wheels ever. American Racing is still producing the wheel, adapted to modern car hubs. American Racing has maintained its pioneering spirit all through the years, and is still leading in the segments of the custom wheel market serving racing and classic car enthusiasts. Muscle cars and American sports car, especially Corvettes, just don't look right with wheels from brands lacking the heritage of American Racing. American Racing designs and engineering features have stood the test of time. The company is confidently rolling into the future on traditional, contemporary and futuristic wheels, all carrying decades of experience, expertise and tradition. The American Racing product line is characterized by design elements borrowed from racing and by competitive strength-to-weight ratios. The wheels come in staggered fitments, modern finishes and in both classic and contemporary sizes.

Baja Polished Rims
Kind of wanted that "old school" look and these rims fit the bill. Just put them on and they look great, too early to comment on the quality as far as durability.

Nice New Wheels
Look great and ride nice. The only thing I'm not crazy about is that the wheel size makes my tires rub on the mud flaps. Not the end of the world. They'll eventually wear in. But I'd imagine that will vary vehicle to vehicle so just something to be aware of.

Wheels for My 1971 Ford F-250
The wheels were nice looking and fit properly, it said American Racing on the wheel center cap, but the wheels were made in CHINA . Everything shipped on time and all parts ( lug nuts ) were there. I wish the wheels were made in America, that's why the quality is at 4 stars for me and not 5 stars.

American Racing Polished Wheels
The polished wheels were purchased as a Christmas gift for my fathers 86 Chevy. They look great and give the truck a new look. He was totally surprised and people ask him where he purchased them. My son installed them with no issues and the quality of the polished wheels is superb. Would definitely recommend and purchase again.

Here Is My 2 Cents Worth
I have purchased the wheels in the past for another vehicle I had, the wheels hold their shine for the first year but Canadian Winters are hard on the finish at best. I did not buy the wheels because they were the first choice basically was the only choice in the time frame I had to work with. I needed to change from 20" to 17" rims and after some discussion over the phone and via emails this what we ended up with. Since I got back to home base I have sanded the center of the wheel and painted black leaving the polished outer ring which is what I was after for a look in a wheel. If you like the mud this wheel is not for you they are hard to clean due to size of the holes and spacing. If your looking for a good long lasting wheel for not allot of money yes the American Racing Baja Polished will do the job for you.
