Chattanooga, Tenn. (December 12, 2014) - Get aboard the Solid Rocket! The Indy Roadsters of the 50s and 60s dominated the track with 6 pin drive magnesium wheels. The lighter weight six-pin replaced the outdated wire-laced wheels of the 1920's and became as much of an icon as the Offy engine. Taking its styling cues from the original Indy Roadster wheels, the Solid Rocket features the same classic six pin smooth solid front and ribbed design on the reverse side. Now, in addition to the original 16x5 size, the Solid Rocket series is available in 18x6.

The Solid Rocket is constructed of durable high-tech aluminum and served up at an incredible price point. Originally, the 
six-pin wheels were held on by a pressure plate and knockoff. The Solid Rocket re-creates the appearance of a six-pin pressure plate and knockoff attachment but with the safety and security of a 5-lug bolt on.  

The Solid Rocket is available in 16x5 and 18x6 in multiple finishes: Full Machined and Full As Cast finish. Our exclusive, custom RPM7 powder coat can also be applied to reproduce the classic, magnesium DOW7 finish of the 1960's. Mix and Match the Rocket Fire (Ribbed Style) and Solid Rocket (Smooth Style) with tall, skinny vintage tires to your traditional hot rod or open wheel roadster, and you've got the ultimate Indy look! The 16x5 size is versatile, as it fits most ALL 16" diameter Vintage Tire sizes from the short, skinny 500-16 up to the tall 825-16.  The Solid Rocket is available in 5x4.50, 5x4.75, 5x5 and 5x5.50 bolt patterns. Each Solid Rocket wheel is precision-crafted from A356 aluminum.



The Solid Rocket is a  5-Lug Bolt-on wheel that utilize conical seat open end lugs. To complete the Indy look, choose from our optional Gray or Polished Lug Cover with Vintage 3-bar Knockoffs to our new Rocket Bullet Center Caps and Vintage Dome Caps.
