My father, Boyd Coddington, produced some of the first billet wheels for the hot rods he was building back in the early 80’s. The demand for those billet wheels grew and the custom made to order billet wheel industry was born. Throughout the 80’s and 90’s many iconic designs came out of Hot Rods by Boyd and were featured on high profile Boyd Built cars like Chezoom and Aluma coupe. Today Hot Rods by Boyd is bringing back the cool styles of that era and offering a wider range of fitments and sizes than previously offered. All HRBB Retro Series wheels feature the soft lip and are available in diameters 17″ to 24″ for most 5 and 6 lug applications. Hot Rods by Boyd is also willing to bring back any one of your favorite billet designs from the past. So if you don’t see it in our line up give us a call to discuss making those for you.

Another release into our Retro Series is the Tri-Fan. Designed and built back in 1990 by Boyd Coddington the Tri-Fan was the first 3 spoke true directional wheel to be offered for sale to the public. The Tri Fan turned out to be a truly iconic billet wheel design featured on such vehicles as the Boyd Built, Mitsubishi powered, Aluma Coupe. Today Chris Coddington and Hot Rods by Boyd are bringing back some of the older designs but offering them in a wider range of sizes and fitments. Pictured below is the Tri-Fan in 22″ with a soft lip. For more information about this wheel or if you would like an older design recreated please give HRBB a call at 866-612-2693.

The 80’s and 90’s were a great time for the Coddington family. The billet boom was hitting and sport trucks rolling on 15″ and 17″ billets were the thing. One of the earliest directional wheesl that I can remember my dad producing was the Pro Sport. While the Tri-Fan received a lot more attention the Pro Sport holds a soft spot in my heart for being one of the cooler directional wheels my dad did when I was a kid. We just finished these up for a customer and I am excited to see an older design like the Pro Sport built in a larger diameter and soft lip. If you have an older design you’d like us to build feel free to give us a call. We’d love to do them. 866-612-2693
