Wheel Restoration Video

If your custom aluminum wheels have seen better days, there is a possibility that they can be restored to look new again.    We took our Vintage Wheel Works V45 wheels that have been on our '62 Ford Galaxie 500 XL since 1999 to Dent Wizard's wheel refurbishing center to have them brought back to as-new condition.    The Dent Wizard crew stripped the wheels, blasted and cleaned them, painted the centers, CNC machined the rim, and clear powder coated them to keep 'em looking new.      We then added a set of custom white and red lined tires from Diamond Back Classics to give our old Galaxie a look all it's own.     We think they look great, what do you think?

Wheels and tires can make or break the look of your Muscle Car, and if you order custom wheels in the wrong size, you're stuck with them.   In this video, Kelle shows us how to properly measure wheel width, diameter, bolt pattern and size, offset, and backspacing.    We also learn about tire sizes to unscramble the mystery of the numbers on the sidewall.

Can you believe that 1 in 6 wheel weights fly off cars on the road? Not only does this throw your car into a shake at speed, but the lead weights are accumulating all over the country causing a health hazard. 3M came up with an innovative and safe solution with a new weight system that is good enough for Indy cars.

 

Wheels and tires can make or break a car's looks and performance, and we wanted to choose our wheel and tire combination carefully. We wanted to equip our 1965 Chevelle with wheels that will look good forever, without being too trendy. We also wanted tires that offered great performance without sacrificing ride and comfort. After carefully measuring the Chevelle with a Percy's Wheel Rite tool, we selected a set of Vintage Wheel Works V40 straight-spoke wheels measuring 17x8" with 4 3/4" of backspace. These wheels are practically made for the car, with their crisp, timeless, and aggressive styling. For tires, we chose a set of BF Goodrich g-Force Super Sport A/S tires in 245/45R17 rear and 225/45R17X/L front sizes. The g-Force Super Sports offer aggressive looks, great all-season traction, and construction stiff enough to handle the autocross without sacrificing comfort.

 

Wheels & tires make up a huge part of how a car looks and performs, and we're running some cool ones on this Camaro! Check out the Rocket Racing Booster wheels done in polished lip / gray face for a nostalgic look, and the killer redline Toyo Proxes T1 Sport tires! The tires were redlined by Diamond Back Classics, and the process vulcanizes the red stripe to the side wall, meaning it won't peel off or rub like paint. It's part of the tire. Cool stuff!
