Magnum 500 Wheels



This wheel line was made by the Motor Wheel Corporation, one of the most prolific producers of steel "styled" wheels during the 1960's and 70's. In addition to custom aftermarket wheels, they made wheels for virtually all American auto makers during the Muscle Car era. Many of their designs are considered classics today. Chevy lovers remember the Chevelle SS wheel, Mustang fans, the Magnum series. Curiously, many do not realize that they are minor variations of the same wheel! Chrysler, AMC and Oldsmobile muscle cars also used this wheel in different combinations of size, chrome components, trim rings, center caps, etc. The following descriptions were compiled from many sources- (including the author's memory!) and may, or may not, be totally accurate. Some pictures are from our archive of D'Antiques products and others were stolen from various sources.
