01. Rocket Booster 6
From the dragstrip to Main Street, the five-spoke wheel is a legendary classic. The drab, six-spoke design for trucks and SUVs lacked character, allure, and classic styling...until now. Rocket Racing Wheels changes the game by unveiling the first six-lug, five-spoke, classic-style truck wheel. The all-new Rocket Booster 6 mimics the sleek, hot rod design of the original Rocket Booster, but with a six-lug mounting application. Booster 6 features a reverse mount soft lip outer that provides a longer spoke and maximizes the wheel window. Additionally, Ford truck enthusiasts can cruise in hot rod style with the option of the 5x5½ bolt pattern application. The Booster 6 is available in 20-inch sizes and is purpose built to deliver big style and performance for six-lug classic and late-model trucks and SUVs at very affordable prices. The Booster 6 has a load rating of 2,300 pounds per wheel. The Booster 6 is also fitted for original 4WD truck applications for classic and late-model Ford, Dodge, Chevy, and GMC trucks. Note Booster 6 is not designed to fit over manual lockout 4WD hubs. The Rocket Booster 6 is precision-crafted from A-356 aluminum and designed and tested to meet or exceed U.S. DOT requirements and SAE standards. Booster 6 quality finishes include our easy-to-maintain classic Hyper Shot paint with machined outer lip and our durable chrome finish. Both finishes offer virtually no maintenance. When the wheels get dirty, simply hose them off and towel dry. To complete the look, each wheel is topped off with a vintage-style domed aluminum center cap.

09. Classic Industries' Chemical Warfare Against Corrosion
Classic Industries' new selection of OER rust-treatment products now arms classic truck enthusiasts with an anti-corrosion chemical arsenal. For classic pickup restorers rust hides in nooks and crevices, collecting moisture and slowly spreading, while constantly weakening the structure. That's why Classic Industries has unleashed a new line of chemicals to fight corrosion. “Often, by the time you see rust on your classic vehicle, there is already a deep problem beneath the surface. Left untreated, it will consume a vehicle,” says Ray Yager, Classic Industries merchandising director. “With these restoration-grade OER chemicals, enthusiasts can fight rust at the molecular level.” These chemicals are specially formulated to remove, treat, and prevent rust. Return corroded surfaces to bare metal, convert rust into a paintable polymer coating, or seal out moisture and oxygen to starve corrosion and stop the spread for good. To learn more about the full line of preventive chemicals check out www.classicindustries.com or call 855-357-2787.
