Rocket Racing Wheels introduction of the first-ever, dual-direction, flow-form, semi-forged wheel production method offers near infinite flexibility. The cast center can be moved within a wide range of offsets inside the spun-forged outer rim, providing options that until now were available only from expensive multi-piece wheels. This breakthrough technology delivers weight and metal strength characteristics similar to traditional high-dollar forged wheels.
Rocket's designers, engineers and automotive aftermarket veterans conducted extensive research in a collaborative effort to develop the most popular Pro Touring and Performance wheel designs.
The Rocket Attack wheels will feature generous caliper clearances for performance brake systems, multiple offsets, premium low-maintenance finishes and ready-to-ship inventory. In addition, custom options and two center cap selections will be available.
"We are excited to bring this new technology to the market, delivering modern production for Pro Touring and Performance wheels for a lot less money. Our Track & Touring Series will be a true game-changer", said David Coker, President & CEO of Rocket Racing Wheels.
The wheels will be shown on the V8 Speed & Resto Shop built 1968 Camaro called RELOADED at the 2017 SEMA show in Las Vegas.
