What are Cragar wheels?
Cragar wheels are the perfect fit for your muscle car, hot rod or classic truck, and Coker Tire is proud to add them to our already extensive line of authentic tires and wheels. Specifically, we are carrying Cragar S/S Series 61C wheels, which features the iconic five-spoke design with a show-quality chrome finish.
Is Cragar still in business?
Cragar is still alive and well as a company today, even after the passing of Roy Richter in 1983. The Cragar company still produces the S/S wheel today, just as strong and beautiful as they were in 1964, along with a whole catalog of other striking wheels and accessories.
When did the Cragar s/s wheel come out?
The Cragar S/S wheel was introduced in 1964, giving hot rodders an alternative to magnesium racing wheels and factory-style steel wheels. With nearly 60 years of heritage, the Cragar S/S wheel continues to be a popular option.
Why is Cragar Equipment so popular?
In the years following Roy Richter’s incorporation of the Cragar Equipment Company, the popularity of the company as a racing equipment staple grew quickly. By 1963, Cragar had enough street credit amongst racers around the country to be a founding member of the Speed Equipment Manufacturing Association or SEMA.
