Hot Rod Wire

Hot Rod Wire WheelsIf you’re building a hot rod, wheel selection is always tough, and it can make or break the look of your car. Size, style and color play a big role in getting the right appearance, but you should also consider trim rings, center caps and valve stems into the equation to get the full scope of the complex decision. Wire wheels have been a staple in the hot rod community, dating back to when the wheels were considered new. OEM-style wires are still popular for street rods, but the availability of aftermarket wire wheels in various sizes and styles makes for a long list of applications.

From a chopped highboy to a fat fendered car from the late ‘40s, wire wheels fit the traditional hot rod styling, and look great on a variety of cars. Roadster Wire Wheels makes a wheel called the Hot Rod Wire, and it’s based on a generic hub and rim design. It’s all steel, and most folks opt for primer or powder coat (12 colors available) to match or contrast the car or truck’s exterior color combination. Some rodders like chrome plated wires with stainless steel spokes, so that’s always an option as well.

Hot Rod Wire wheels are available with all four of the popular five-lug bolt patterns (5×4.5, 5×4.75, 5×5, 5×5.5 inches) and they’re available in a great number of sizes from 14- to 20-inch diameters. The wheels feature a drop center rim with 52 steel spokes, and the hub size accepts OEM Ford wire wheel caps, as well as a number of aftermarket caps. As for trim rings, you can choose from 14-, 15- and 16-inch sizing, manufactured from stainless steel in a ribbed or smooth design. With all of these options, it’s best to do your homework and figure out the right look for your car, and then match it to the appropriate set of tires for your car.
