"Tenzaloy" E.T. wheels ad from May, 1965 HRM. Clearly, the aftermarket mag wheel marketing blitz was well underway by 1965.

Here's the "Drag Mag" from Foresight Ventures in Oakland, CA. May, 1965 HRM. Nice looking wheel.

I keep waiting for someone to post something on a regional sole mag called "Marbec" that was made in the Dallas area back in the mid 60's. I am not positive about my spelling of this wheel but feel the name is very close.

Every time I was down there to visit my Mother who remaried and moved to FtWorth in '62. I went to the local drive-in's and saw them on many local cars often. Good looking wheels but the only thing wrong with them was you had to change the tires by hand back then. The centers were all one piece and not open and there was no "removable center cap".

This should ID them easy if anyone has come across a deep dish cromed spoked wheel ET styled. They were a deep dish 5 spoke mag. Never saw any without the deep dish. Anybody remember them?

TJ,
I have never seen any of the 3 ads you posted from the May '65 Hot Rod. I "must" have that magazine in my files. Going to search for it soon.
Yes, the Rader does look just like the M/Ts I have. Little is known. I suspect Mickey Thompson made an agreement with Rader for some rights to produce his own. The mold(s) was modified to include the "M/T 1965" inside the rear of one spoke and they suddenly became M/T mags. At least he did produce a plethora of his own center caps and spinners. In my opinion, his are much more pleasing than the Rader centers. I have quite a collection of the variety he offered, but the ones on the black '62 I call "curvies". I think they must have been mostly a Calif. thing (that more custom look) Honestly, I searched for 10 years to find those spinners, handing out "wanted" photos at every swap meet I went to. As it turned out, a very good friend of mine found a complete set at the Maple Grove Dragway swap meet for $20. a number of years ago and gave them to me.
Priceless! (I mean the friendship)

TJ, my hat's off to you. You are carrying the banner on this thread. Great stuff!!!

Great stuff!
I'd better get a camera and learn how to post my own. I've got a ton of old catalogs.
Anybody have a pic of the Cragar Sport mag? (not the Super Sport). Aluminum center spokes and a chrome rim. Those are the mags I put on the '62 with the slicks in '69. (still have them, and they're like new).

I'll PM the cover so you'll know what to look for.

I laughed at that Verne! All I'm doing is scanning and posting old wheel ads but it has been fun as well as informative. My son (6 and a car nut) has been sitting on the living room floor going through Hot Rods with me. Beats the H*LL out of watching TV after dinner!

Another fun part of old Hot Rods are all the killer cars as well as famous rods, customs, and drag cars for sale in the Hot Rod Mart at the back of the magazines. It's enough to make you weep.
