XR7-G Rader Wheels

 
 
    Rader wheels, manufactured by Trans American Products Co., were installed on some XR7-Gs and were intended for all; but problems with air leakage, cracking, and lug nut torque forced their removal from production and a recall notice to owners.  Ford was pretty thorough in their efforts to replace these wheels with styled steel wheels on most XR7-Gs, so very few survive today.  This is an incredibly rare NOS Rader wheel displayed with its lug nuts, original box, and hub cap mounting cup.  Also shown is a spinner accessory center cap which was a Rader accessory.  Thanks to Ernie Spragg for allowing us to see his wheel and caps here.
