We offer restored 8 lug sets, either factory appearance, or modified to your color preferences. As of the present inventory available, we have right hand and left hand threaded drums, along with several years of wheels, some hubcaps and trim rings, some NOS lug nuts, wheel and tire balancing plates, spare tire hold down plates and original factory spare tire cover plates.

Since some suppliers are already downstream, we can provide a source for reproduction hubcaps and trim rings. Our sets can come complete with them, but we usually offer them minus the hubcaps and trim rings so you can choose the year you want and purchase them directly from the same source as we do and then you save on the shipping.

All completed sets are shipped in new boxes with plastic wrapped wheels and drums, held-in bearing and grease seal sets, Styrofoam packing sheets on all sides and top and bottom, and plastic peanuts as a surround. They will get to you in the same condition as they left here.

Update! New for all our customers!!!  Now Available are Original Hubcaps for All Years the 8 Lugs Were Produced, including the hard to find, non-reproduced 1963-1964 Sets! These come in various restored conditions from driver quality to restored (and some NOS), and are described in return emails or by phone when inquiries are made.


Now Available, Complete tapered roller bearing conversion kits for the 1960-1962 8 Lug Short Fin Drums! These were very difficult to source, and now available to you directly from our location is a complete set. This Set includes inner bearings, outer bearings, and seals for both front drums.  $245

The Chief8Lug Neon Clock!




Here is truly a one-of-a-kind item for Pontiac owners, an authentic Pontiac 8 lug drum, restored and converted to a neon clock. A quality restoration with a 6 ¼ inch diameter Quartz clock movement that is battery operated, glass clock lens, brass bezel, complete with wall mounting bracket, and low-voltage transformer for the neon, ready to hang up and plug in. The red neon ring inside the drum backlights the numbers in the clock, or you can leave the neon switched off.

For wall hanging there is an angled stud put in the inside of the drum that goes in the top slot of the wall bracket, and this consequently centers the drum and holds it tight to the wall.

The fins on this 8 lug drum have been polished, and new lug nuts are included on the studs. The drum has been bead-blasted, and repainted in the correct color for 1964 Pontiacs and up.

These 8 lug drums were produced by Pontiac from 1960 to 1968, and we restore show quality sets for your special Pontiac. Call us at 310-832-8336 for information on restored sets of 8 lugs, both short fin and long fin, factory 8 lug accessories, and lots of 8 lug items.

Often, from the drums we buy, there are those that are damaged or can’t be turned within limits, and these are machined into clocks. This serves two purposes as only drums that need to be retired are used, and you get an authentic historic Pontiac option made into a clock which will light up your den, shop, store or game room for years to come.

If you have a Pontiac with 8 lug wheels and drums, can you picture this clock on your wall ? We have a 1961 Pontiac Ventura bubbletop with 8 lugs, and we have our clock nearby that we get to enjoy everyday.

8 Lug Fin Safeguard Protectors - Our exclusive new item on the market.

These are a brand new and much needed product we are now making. The fins on the 8 lug drums are aluminum, and can be scratched, nicked, or dented very easily by manhandling the wheels and tires. These Safeguard Protectors finally provide a protective cover to guard the fins from damage during wheel installation. Put them on, then when the wheel and tire are finally installed, remove the Safeguard Protectors easily for storage. Made of thick rubber to ward of the blows, and made to fit to the thickness of the fins for perfect gripping and protection.

See our video - its impressive. 

Why risk damage on your 8 lug fins when they are the most important visual part of the 8 lugs. These Safeguard Protectors come die-cut with different angles at both ends to fit the angles of the drums and wheel as installed, and these are easily installed and removed. This is really cheap insurance for you and your treasured 8 lugs. Don't worry now about the tire shop putting nicks and dings in the fins any more. Sold as a  set of 20, more than enough to install one drum at a time.
