Rocket Racing Wheels has unveiled a new category of wheel technology

The right stance and wheels are key for any street rod and no one understands this better than Rocket Racing Wheels.

To better serve the market, especially when it comes to big calipers, rotors and the pro-touring needs, Rocket has introduced a new wheel series, the Track & Touring line. This is more that simply a fresh line of wheels – it is also an all new technology that combines a flow-formed, semi-forging design.

These wheels, 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.

“We’re 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 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’ve been on the hunt for a fresh set of wheels for our ’65 wagon and the new Tracke & Touring sounds just right to clear the Baer Brakes that are on the Pontiac.
