I read over the weekend that US Mags (I think) is making some wheels that look just like Cragar SS's but with the older style more rounded spoke, and the Cragar SS center caps fit them. Has anyone seen these in person?

Some of the prices being asked lately is just plain stupid, but there is still stuff out there that can be bought right.
I actually think that the prices may settle some when the new ones are released as they will fill the demand for those who could care less about the flat spoke/round spoke debate.

I correct myself, it's US Wheels.

Default Do Cragar SS Center Caps fit US Wheel Super Spokes?

These US Wheels look much better than the repro Cragar flat spoke. Has anyone confirmed that the Cragar center caps do fit these wheels? I want the original Cragar look without the price of good used round spoke Cragars.

Those are a sharp looking wheel, and I agree they are much better looking than the flat spoke wheels Cragar now offers. I'd use those over the new Cragar's myself.

Love the final product,but doesn't CRAGAR own that?
How can US Wheel copy the old CRAGAR design exactly?

I don't know how exact that wheel is in terms of a copy. I have a pretty good eye for lines and would bet the spokes are narrowed a bit over the originals? Or at least they look a bit narrower, like 1/4" or thereabout. I see that hoop is a bit different as well, and those 2 things should be enough to bypass any patent laws or infringement issues.

I read some posts on FB where guys got these wheels and the Cragar SS center caps fit, but don't know first hand.
