batmobile mags

ever get a good look at the mags on the '66 tv series batmobile? nice lookin wheels. I know the bat center caps are custom made for the car, but I would think the mags themselves were made by a major wheel co. from the sixties. they look alittle like hurst mags, but its hard to get a good look at them.

Rick, the wheels on the batmobile were made by Radir wheels. I'm on my phone or I'd post a link. They are still in business and still make those wheels.

If I recall correctly, the Munster Koach and Drag-U-La and the Monkeemobile (which was a GTO) also used Radir wheels, although I've seen it w/Cragars; might be a replica or tribute car. Maybe George Barris, who built those TV cars (and many more) had some kind of a deal with Radir.

George Barris didn't build the Monkeymobile. Dean Jeffries did.

If I recall correctly, George Barris is the current owner of the Monkeymobile,
