Who makes these wheels?

I am looking for the manufacturer of these wheels. The distributors cannot give me an idea of how much caliper clearence they have. I am sure they are made in china or some far off place. Thanks in advance

i hate to piss on anyones parade, but i would steer clear of chinese rims altogether.
they have zero quality control and they basically determine stress tolerances by trial and error.
not a good recipe for making rims....
please look into this carefully if they are indeed made in china.
good luck with it.

Re: Who makes these wheels?

Hi Dave,

At first glance it looked familiar as the Edelbrock 454 wheel.. After comparing the two, I don't think so - but;

EDELBROCK WHEELS
