Interesting blurb from their site.

General Lee's Landing Gear. American Racing wheels can be seen in some of Hollywood's most famous films including The Game, Die Hard With A Vengeance, Vanilla Skies, 2Fast 2Furious, and perhaps the most important Ford Mustang film of all time, Bullit. During the seven seasons (147 episodes & 2 made-for-TV reunion movies) of the hit television series "Dukes of Hazzard", the Warner Brothers studio built a total of 340 "General Lee" 1969 Dodge Chargers. All "General Lees" were equipped with American Racing "Vector" wheels. Of the 340 General Lees built for the series, 321 were destroyed as a result of stunt car jumps. Of the 1360 American Racing Vectors jumped and stunt driven for the series, only one wheel failed by breaking (the broken wheel is in a private collection in Sylmar, California).

American Racing Vector SE custom wheel. This wheel is a one-piece painted/machined aluminum wheel. It is direct bolt with conical seat lug holes for use with acorn style lugs.

I'm starting an important social movement right now.

Bring Back the VECTOR!!!!

Gone for years, brought back in '05

then dropped again.

But left on their website to tease.

Contact your congressman, senator, or an attorney

willing to work for the good of mankind (pro bono)

BRING BACK the VECTOR!!
