Iíll second the comment on Dragmasters. I have two in very nice condition. One is marked American Dragmaster and the other is not marked at all. Iíve seen them both ways, quality control must have been sketchy....as these were bought together and came to me with GY Blue-streaks. Cool slots.

The Drag Masters are bowl shaped. These Universal Wheel slots are stepped like Ansen or other slots. I've done Google searches and can't find much on them. They were on a '67 Camaro that my brother bought about 36 years ago.
I found this on the HAMB.

I believe they are stepped because they are wider. My “guess” is they used/borrowed a Dragmaster as a pattern and widened the mold. The rear looks very similar....cast in California? Mine are 6” and were on the rear of a 57... 2” step?

Yes, could be because they are wider. I wonder if there is any value in them. I was thinking of using them on the back of my Chevelle, but they are not as wide as I want. I wanted to use a 10 inch wheel.

Not a ton of value, but they are refreshing to see. Think of how many wheel company’s there were back then. Everybody ripped each other off and had very similar designs. Most of the “Day-Two”cars use the same brands of wheels, different can be good when done right.

I like the 6-hole slots. They are a refreshing change of pace. Here are some on the Iron Mistress '67 Camaro drag car.

I ran mine on the front of my 68, had Cragers and L-60 Mickys out back. They are light!

Mr70, I got a picture of the stamp on the 14 inch SS wheel. Looks like a very small 8 on the left, then a larger 10 and a small 4 on the right. What does it mean?
