20×19 Junk Yard Dogs

Here is an update on those massive 20×19 rims we built. They ended up getting some Junk Yard Dog centers in them. These wheels are going on the back of Tim Cotterill’s current project Rocket III which is planned for completion Summer 2013. If it’s going to anything like Rocket II then it’s going to be one hell of a machine. These 20×19’s have a 6.5″ backspace. We have included a pic next to a 17×10 rim to show you the size difference. Below are pics of Tim’s last project Rocket II that featured 20×15 JYD’s on it. Tim, aka Frogman, is a great guy with a great story and tons of artistic talent. For more information on Tim you can check out For more information on these wheels call 866-612-2693 or email.

Red Stripe Blacked Out JYDs

Our good customer Pete sent us these pics of his Camaro with some blacked out JYDs. These 18″ Junk Yard Dogs were treated with an all satin black paint with a red stripe added by Pete. Good job and great looking ride.

Rambler………. Brockmeyer Style

Eric Brockmeyer’s Rambler American sedan was started towards the end of 2004 and finished in July of 2011. Those 7 years were well worth the wait because Eric’s little project came out exactly as he planned and he has some awards to show for it. I remember talking to Eric back in 2005 about doing up some wheels for the Rambler. We were just about to take the Junk Yard Dog into a cast version and he wanted to have one of the first sets built. Eric knew right from the beginning what he wanted to accomplish and once he put pencil to paper he decided to take it over to Link’s Rod Shop in Heath, OH to start the build. Along the way H and H Autobody did the paint and bodywork and Weber’s Custom Interiors finished the nice black leather interior. The Rambler sports a 55 354 Hemi dual quad. A set of 20×10 and 18×7  custom painted Junk Yard Dogs puts the power to the pavement. Debuted at Good Guys Columbus last summer and won Goodguys Columbus- builders choice and Street Rodder top 100. Other awards include NSRA nats Louisville- Builders Choice, Goodguys Indy- Snap-On Innovator award and NSRA Nats Tampa- builders choice.
