Poor Boys Hot Rods 1969 Camaro Project

For those of you that remember Dan Sobieski from American Hot Rod he now has a shop that resides in part of my dad’s old shop on Lambert Rd in La Habra. Dan’s shop is called Poor Boys Hot Rods. Don’t let the name fool you cause Dan and his crew are working on some nice high dollar, high performance builds. We are working with Poor Boys on one in particular. It’s a 1969 Camaro with all new ZR-1 suspension and drivetrain. The wheel of choice is our Pro-Touring HR-01. 19×9 up front and 20×12 in the rear. As soon as we were done machining them I press fit them in some rims and brought them over for a test fit. The beauty in dealing with 2pc welded wheels is that you can, if needed, test fit them to insure proper fit. The wheels you see in the pics are just machined. The final wheels will have a brushed center with ceramic black paint in the windows and a polished rim. Stay tuned for more updates on this build.

Pro Touring Wheel Headquarters

19x8 and 20x12 PT-01

We have been catering to the Pro-Touring market long before that term for the latest automotive segment even existed. Originally part of our Multi-Piece Forged series the PT-01 and the rest of our Pro-Touring line cater to lightweight designs, performance brake clearances, and a wide array of sizes and backspaces. Shown above are a pair of brushed center polished outer PT-01 in 19×8 and 20×12. If your looking for the ultimate performance wheel set up look no further. Contrary to some of the information that is being thrown around out there about 3pc wheels being better than 2pc, 2pc welded construction wheels are far superior to 3pc wheels for a number of reasons. 2pc wheels are pound for pound stronger and outperform 3pc wheels in cornering and radial fatigue tests. 2pc wheels in most cases can be made lighter due to the lack of hardware. Speaking of hardware would you build a race car chassis by bolting it together or wouldn’t you just trust the strength of welding? Sizes and offsets. There is now a wide array of diameters and widths that fit 98% of the tires available for performance vehicles. Both our centers and our outers are made of 6061 aluminum unlike most 3pc rim shells that are made of 5000 series aluminum. Now the only thing 3pc wheels have over 2pc wheels is the ability to chrome the wheels. If your into that then go for it, but if your into a nice looking wheel that performs stick with 2pc.
