    Sad to hear that , they made good quality wheels but they're very heavy wheels , not much of a weight savings

    A guy at work tried to buy a set of wheels from them a couple of years back. Some offset specific to his Mustang but after waiting 9 months for wheels promised to ship in 3 he gave up and got a refund. You won't last long with service like that. Sad news.

    Almost all their street suitable wheels are heavy...for good reason. They are extremely well made and durable. The ones labeled 'not for street use' are pretty dang light.

    I had a set of their Tel Stars. They were 15x8 and 15x6. They actually weighed less than the factory 14" N90 wheels that came on my car.

    That sucks. I've always loved the Auto-Drag style. In fact I tried to get a set for my C-10 years ago but they didn't have a truck application. Back then anyway

    I had a set of their wheels on my 06 3/4 ton. Super nice forged and chromed wheel my only complaint about them was the center caps rattled in them but I solved that by putting big orings on them that got smashed between the wheel and center cap when you tightened the lugs down.

    Centerline was one of those companies I always wanted to like. But most of their stuff went out of date in the 1980's. They just weren't willing to update their product lines work late models (other than trucks). The whole company was really slow on the update with larger than 15" wheels.

    American Racing and Weld long since drank Centerline's milkshake
