    Yep yep. ;-)

    Those were Pacers. Pretty sure Pete Paulsen carried this brand at some point in the last few years too. I also remember seeing Pacers in one of the ads in LRM a couple years back. I don't know if Pacer Supremes are still around or what. Weird how the stamping was on the outside of the wheel. Made for a good pic though. Props to Ras for snapping these.

    San Fernando Tire and Wheel. I just shorten it cuz I'm lazy. I've been going to the one right there in Sanfer forever. Since before I could drive. My gramps was friends with the old owner. They treat me right. They move crazy amounts of wheels and tires all over the place. Out of state and everything. Big operation.

    It sucks that I don't live in San Fernando anymore. Tire shops here in Lancaster SUCK. I do have a real cool place down the street from me called TireXpress. Great service. Great guys. But they don't really do the wheel thing too much.

I casually asked him what the differences were in the two sets, because one had plain boxes and the other had US Wheel boxes. He said "There's no difference. They're all Supremes." Then I asked him why one set was reinforced and one wasn't. Then after looking down at the non-reinforced wheels he said, "13 wheels don't have the reinforcement". Then I pointed out the fact that both sets were 14". After he snapped out of his stuttering daze he responded with, "Well I have no idea why those aren't reinforced. They're all made by the same people. Well, two different companies but they all know each other." He mentioned that one set was AWC but couldn't tell me which ones. Either way the guy didn't know who made what and couldn't tell me why they were the same price. I think it's funny that the largest and most established wheel dealer at the Pomona Swapmeet has no idea what he's selling.

    Eryk, when I first scored those 3 bar supreme spinners off OG lil E..I showed one to Pete Paulson and asked if they were made for Astro Supremes.....he told me that he had never seen that 3 bar Supreme spinner before,that it was probably a after market cap.....and now after seeing the add?? he had to have seen them.Dudes are just burned out and dont wanna think hard enough to answer a legit question proper.Thats all.
    So...about those caps ;-)

    Looks like they might have built them backwards. The center should be facing the other way.

    Haha, no. I don't have any of his. I'm usually throwing my chonies at him.


    Back to the Supreme caps...I have a great ad out of LRM that shows those spinners and the same logo on a set of wires. I'm pretty sure the ad is from the company that created those Supreme spinners. I'll see if I can find it and scan it.

    Hopefully I did not miss this in a previous message but does anyone have an opinion on the new Cragar ones that Newstalgia sells? They have the wires as well.

    If these are the ones that they are selling I don't want them. They have that funky beveled lip around the center section.

    Re: Everything you ever wanted to know about Supremes...

    Even if they are Uniques, they probably won't look like that. That was a very short-lived incarnation. That particular spoke design with the weird center and the ring attached to the spoke ends made for an ugly wheel. Cragar bought the Unique name and I'm almost positive they did away with that design in favor of the traditional supreme like most other companies offer. But you never know. Maybe Paulsen is liquidating old stock at that lower price. I dunno for sure. It may be worth a call over there. But I haven't had good luck with any of these retailers/vendors knowing anything or being willing to give specifics.

    A buddy of mine had this on his '61 wagon and they just didn't look right to me. They didn't look bad, but not what I would want. Here's some pics.
