The original Halibrand Sunburst pin-drive wheel made its’ debut on the AC Cobra in the early 1960’s. The AC Cobra was one of the most important performance iconic cars of the 20th century. While the Sunburst classic turbine style wheels were only in production a very short while, even today they are frequently discussed and highly sought after, fetching thousands of dollars for a single set. Not only are these wheels, a really rare find, they are absolutely stunning! The first thing you notice is that the long, free flowing spokes begin at the center hub and reach all the way to the outer rim lip. The spoke length gives you the visual impression that the rim diameter is larger than a 15″ diameter. The hub area is perfectly framed with what appears to be the fairing of a jet engine of an airplane and spokes that look like fins of a turbine.
**Fitment Note** Sunburst Requires Spline Drive Lugs – Rocket Racing Wheels successfully re-engineered the Sunburst wheel to provide the safety and security of a 5 lug bolt-on application without sacrificing the classic appearance of a pin-drive knockoff. The NEW Rocket Sunburst features dual drilled, 5×4 ½ and 5×4 ¾ bolt patterns into each wheel. The recessed lug holes with utilization of our special black anodized spline-drive lugs, successfully creates the appearance of pin-drive style wheel.
The NEW Rocket Sunburst available with fitments for Classic Cobras and Classic Muscle Cars of the 1960’s and 1970’s.
