Does anyone know what company manufactures these wheels. I've been searching for a great looking, yet simple, retro-wheel for some time, and have also been a huge fan of classic slotted mags on Jeeps since I was a kid. But I do believe that I like this more truck-like slotted style even better.

The wheel below is currently on the Stitch Concept Jeep. They've recently, and smartly, switched out the original boring black spoked ones, that we've all seen on Stitch, for these slick slotted ones. So, I suppose it's fairly possible that it could be a lightweight prototype wheel that isn't for sale yet, if ever, I don't know. Hopefully Jeep will actually utilize this wheel someday.

Who makes these things?

I've seen them in a magazine and website, but can't remember where. Maybe summit racing, not sure though.

Thank's for the tip Mrbullitt. The Summit Racing site did have a Crager Bonneville Series Mag wheel that is very close to the Stitch wheel, but the size and shape of the slots are a little different. Still searching!

Awesome! Yup, those are the ones I remember seeing. I'll keep an eye out as well! Those would look pretty sweet!

Check out Cragar's website. They might have the ones you're looking for

Finally found 'em, they're American Racing Salt Flat Specials. Problem is, I can't find it in a 5 x 5 bolt pattern, and I really don't want to use an adapter. Next!

Sweet! Glad you found them. Figured either Cragar or American Racing would have them!

Strange how I got negative comments about my black wheels and selling the 10 A wheels which are mostly black. I looked for silver wheels and couldn't find anything I liked. I have since found Pintlers in silver. I'm selling the black ones. I agree with you.

I like black wheels but am beginning to see so many of them that I stuck with keeping my Moabs stock in finish. I like the way it looks!

I say the more different styles out there the better. putting new wheels and tires on next weekend and hoping they are at least a little different than every other jeep on the road just to make it mine. Now, let's start another thread on favorite ice cream flavors, same thing, to each his own...

Pics please when you get 'em on. I'm just being nosy and I do like to see different configurations. My favorite wheels to date were the Mineral grey stock 5 spokes on my 2010 Mountain, Not black, not silver.

I like mine because of the painted fenders. I think if I has black fenders it would have blended too much? I don't know, always lived the black wheels.

I got mine installed yesterday and headed straight for the mud. Black but a machined accent around the edge.
