From Speedintro.com. American Racing has been a proud manufacturer of custom wheels and rims for over half a century. Initially specializing in drag racing wheels, American Racing soon expanded into wheels for street driving as well. In 1963, American Racing helped to popularize cast aluminum wheels with their iconic Torq Thrust wheel, solidifying its place in the history of custom wheels. Since then, American Racing has continued to produce and refine a wide lineup of quality custom wheels for both racers and street drivers, featuring both modern and retro designs. Like the enduring American spirit, every American Racing wheel is part of an ongoing, evolving legacy that continues to this day.
