Take a look at this listing I currently have going.

 

http://www.ebay.com/...me=STRK:MESE:IT

 

I got a bunch of these from a former distributor/track owner here on L.I. These were in a box with a ton of Cobramite bodies but nothing was packaged. He told me they were Cobramite. As you can see in the description I left it open to interpretation.

 

An ebay user told me they were AJ's which I knew was incorrect. I told him so and he said Cobramite never made threaded wheels and they were Champion.

 

You can see they have a tapered rim and open cell spongies. I still say Cobramite.

 

What say you all?

 

Anyone have these new in package?

Ron, thanks so much for the info. The wheel design looks exactly like mine so I think we can confirm Cobramite.

 

Should have bought more back in the day, maybe. Who knows?

 

He had a giant bags full of axles,nuts and wheels. Must have been over 5000 wheels in one bag alone.
