Nice wheels!! American Rebel is very good quality. Now if I can just get them to make an 8 lug 16" Aluminum slot for pickups!

Love the true as cast centers, and not the faux as cast finish. Tried years ago to get Rocket to sell me a pair of their as cast, but with outer rim machined like their painted centers; but they refused. Glad I passed now that I saw what yours were. Those Rebel wheels are a nicer look than any of these 10 spokes I've seen! Love the threaded center caps! A very classy touch!

And only $13 bucks more than the rocket delivered to my door in 3 days, cause you have to pay for the rocket lug nuts $25 bucks witch are no where near as nice as what came with the American rebel wheels, so the shipping is just about canceled out. Iam feeling good now if I can get them mounted with out someone damaging them ....thinking american five spokes for the back 15x8 witch will put my tires about an 1-1/2" out further than whats on there now, was thing halibrands but I think spokes with spokes would look better, still up in the air on it.....waiting on the machine shop to get my block, crank and rods with pistons back, money is flowing out the garage door........love it
