Chattanooga, Tenn. (October 8, 2012) - Rocket Performance Machine, a leading manufacturer of high performance
and nostalgia inspired alloy wheels, announced today expanded bolt patterns in the Rocket Racing Wheels line.
bolt patterns include 5x5 and 5x5½ in the Rocket Injector, Rocket Igniter, and Rocket Strike series. Each style is designed
to preserve the classic look and feel of the golden age hot rods, street rods, and muscle cars, while still delivering maximum style, performance and a surprisingly affordable price.
As each Rocket Racing Wheel comes to market, the backspacing and offsets are carefully chosen and proven to fit on more specific types of muscle car, street rod, hot rod, and trucks. This gives enthusiasts the ability to pick a perfectly sized set of wheels without breaking the bank or waiting weeks or months for the finished product.
Rocket Injector Series
In addition to the current line up of bolt patterns (5x4.50, 5x4.75, and 5x5.50), the 5x5.00 bolt pattern is now also available in the Rocket Injector series in 15x4.5, 15x8, and 15x10. The Rocket Injector Series revives the traditional hot rod styling inspired by hot rods and drag cars from the 50s and 60s, Mix or Match the Rocket Injector Series with the Rocket Launcher Series wheels for the perfect big and little combo on your hot rod, muscle car or vintage drag car.
The Rocket Injector Series wheels are precision-crafted, designed and tested to meet or exceed U.S. D.O.T. Requirements & SAE Standards. Available in Fully Polished and Full Satin "As-Cast" finishes. The Rocket Injector Series serves up traditional styling, bolt-on performance and an unbelievable price.
Rocket Igniter Series
In addition to the current line up of bolt patterns (5x4.50 and 5x4.75), the 5x5 bolt pattern is also now available in the Rocket Igniter series in 15x6, 15x7, and 15x8. The Rocket Igniter Series is inspired by an early design Salt Flats style wheel, dating back to the dawn of the hot rodding age, when a handful of innovative gear heads in hopped-up roadsters streaked across Southern California's dry lakebeds in a quest for speed and glory. The Rocket Igniter features traditional 5-window kidney bean Salt Flats style centers and an old school traditional outer lip.
The Igniter Series wheels are precision-crafted cast A356 aluminum and topped off with a vintage style aluminum o-ring center cap. The Rocket Igniter is available in Fully Polished, Full Satin "As Cast", as well as with Gray Painted Centers with Machined Outers. Whether you're building a Hiboy Roadster, Willys Coupe or traditional Street Rod, the Rocket Igniter, pays homage to the history, passion and courage of the early days of hot rodding.

The Rocket Strike Series is the perfect boulevard cruiser wheel with clean, classic timeless appeal and Single Rib design. The Rocket Strike is available in Fully Polished and Full Satin "As-Cast" finishes.
The Rocket Strike Series wheels offer a longer center cap tower that resemble push through center caps of wheel designs of the 60's.

Add Rocket Vintage Knockoff with thread-on adapter and bullet lug nuts for the perfect Rocket Strike accessory.
