If you close your eyes and imagine some of the toughest, sleekest American muscle cars of the era—the 1971 Plymouth Barracuda, the 1968 Dodge Charger—you might, past the gleaming engine, hood and fuzzy dice, see a beautiful set of shiny super sport wheels. Cragar Wheels, in fact.
Even though Cragar Wheels got its start in 1930, the company came to fame in the era of hot rods and muscle cars, not long after it released its signature Cragar SS chrome rims in 1964.
Today, Cragar is still one of the most trusted and sought-after brands for show and racing cars and trucks. Whether you have a hot rod or you just want your vehicle to look as fast as one; whether your vehicle or your style is vintage or contemporary, Cragar rims still evoke style and speed.
Here are some of our top Cragar Wheel choices for the season:
