Those look like ecken (sp?) not cragar,, cragar might have carried them.. but they don't look like anything cragar itself made..
Oh and where are the cragar wheels made for the last 12 years or so.?
I am not going to argue with you. The Cragar wheels company is owned by The Carlstar Group from Franklin TN and has many plants here in the states making wheels and tires. They do import a limited number of wheels and tires but most are made in country.
You can still get a custom offset made in many of their lines because most are still made here.
Most major wheel makers still make wheels here and only the cheap knock off wheels are imported some from China and many from Brazil and South America. Most of them are identified where you have little or no choice in back space and with no option of custom orders.
I have been a Cragar dealer for 23 years.
Based on your comments you appear to think all they make are the Crager SS where with the chrome outer steel rim and the cheap aluminum center. Well for decades they have made a variety of wheels more than just the SS.
Spelling or not what the hell is a eken wheel? Are you trying to say Enkei? If so they did offer a similar wheel but as I have outlined so did Cragar and American Racing, Prime Wheel and many other off brand cheap imports that no one has even heard of or can even recall today.
Based on the fact he said these said Cragar on the inside it appears that these are Cragar wheels. It does not take a genius to figure this one out.
If you want to argue the point here find someone else. I am just trying to help this guy as it is an area I work in and a wheel I recall but it was one from years ago. This wheel may have been at least two owners ago for Cragar as they were sold several times in my near 25 years of dealing with their account.
Might keep not only are not all their wheels at Cragar are imported today but these wheels are close to 20-30 years old and few wheels back then were imported.
I have not only deal with wheels at my present job for 23 years but I also have in past jobs at a advertising firm where we dealt with many types of wheels for advertising for the major tire companies in print and events like SEMA. So to make this short I am not pulling this out of my butt here and have worked with this wheel in the past. I even know how to spell Enkei if that is what you were trying to do.
