What kind of Keystone mag is this?

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Magnumcharger, Feb 12, 2010.

  1. I saw these pictures in the latest edition of Hemmings Muscle Machines.
    If I knew what these wheels were called, I could actually start looking for a set...
    Any ideas?

    To me they look exactly like a wheel off of a 1960's vintage HotWheels!
    (And that's exactly why I want them!)

    Honestly the picture just is not big enough... My first guess is that it is simply a Hurst mag without the trim ring, you just can not see the raised edges and the hub is blacked out. Looking for a picture to post I did find these are also being reproduced...

    From an article in "Popular Hot Rodding", April 1965 issue , "WHEELS" Aluminum-Steel-Magnesium . The wheels on the cars you posted look like they are by Walker Aluminum in Lynwood , Ca., as shown in the article.............Z

    If you're sure they are Keystones I think these might be what you're looking for. (Disclaimer - This pic was lifted from an older thread.) Magnesium and no doubt very rare and expensive. Fenton had a very similar looking wheel, I think it was maybe called the Shark. Probably almost as difficult as the Keystones to find.

    At a 1/2 wide on my screen in a blury picture I wouldn't bet on it one way or another... The Walker does look like the better call...

    What I'm curious about is that people keep posting the "magnesium Keystones". Funny thing is the KustoMag Keystone comes out in 65 and is two peice steel rimmed just like all the later versions that somewhat look like these... The wheel that was available that looks like those,with no notches in the spoke, that predates the Keystone, is one peice and was available in aluminum or magnesium and will accept a Keystone cap was made by Rebel. Other than the cap does anyone have proof these were ever actually made by Keystone or is this mistaken identity like all the Halibrand twelve spokes?:rolleyes:

  8. Hey guys,
    All it took was a bit of research and I found it.
    It was a Radir Mag, not a Keystone as I was lead to believe.
    Thank you all for your help!
