A Unique Partnership Between Chad McQueen of McQueen Racing and Steeda Autosports Produces a New Comprehensive Line of Performance Wheels for Ford Enthusiasts

LOS ANGELES, CA and POMPANO BEACH, FL – Chad McQueen, the only son of Steve McQueen and owner of McQueen Racing, is pleased to announce the formal introduction of the McQueen Racing Line of Performance Wheels. This unique line of performance-oriented wheels will include over time an extensive product offering for Ford vehicles, Including all trim levels of the Mustang, Bronco, and F-150.

“I’m very excited to continue to develop and collaborate with Steeda. They’ve succeeded in completely capturing the essence of my dad’s “McQueen DNA” with the limited-production Steve McQueen Edition Bullitt Mustang.

Now, together, we’re looking forward to our new wheel collaboration. Our mission is to provide high-quality wheels with an exceptional classic design and a modern twist while maintaining an outstanding value for enthusiasts.

And I know without a doubt that the entire Steeda team shares that goal 100%. Down the road you can look forward to even more wheels from the Steeda-McQueen Racing partnership, including — but not limited to — wheels for Bronco, F-Series, Mach 1, and other Mustangs.” — Chad McQueen, President, McQueen Racing.



We Listened

We only allocate a limited number of Steve McQueen Edition Bullitt Mustangs each year. That means there is not enough for every enthusiast’s garage. That is until now; now you can add a little McQueen swagger to your Mustang with multiple, exclusive wheel designs & offerings from McQueen Racing and Steeda. Yes, we listened to our customers. We know the interest is high. The demand is great. And we hear you! Taking your input, we put our skunkworks teams to work developing this new line of performance wheels.

Each wheel is carefully designed with a respectful nod to the past by including a historical design connection to those timeless wheels from yesteryear. Then, we incorporated a modern design element that’s in line with the styling of todays’ vehicles. The result – The McQueen Racing Wheel Collection.

This exclusive arrangement with Chad McQueen and the Team at McQueen Racing provides performance enthusiasts with an unbeatable combination as Steeda and McQueen Racing team up to offer their outstanding product knowledge and sales support – from the engineering teams to the distribution network.

“This is a great opportunity for Steeda to further expand our offerings to Ford performance enthusiasts,” said Bob Adams, President of Steeda Performance Vehicles. “The Steeda vehicle lineup of high-performance vehicles are some of the best performing and highest-quality performance vehicles available in the market. And our collaboration with McQueen Racing on the Steve McQueen Edition Bullitt Mustang has been nothing short of a grand slam. We are extremely excited to continue to partner with them on this new performance wheel program.”

McQueen Racing Performance Wheels - Initial Product Offerings

The McQueen Racing Performance Wheels are named after a place near and dear to Chad McQueen’s high-speed heart. Each name calls to mind a twisty, challenging Southern California road where Chad is known to have let the adrenaline run free and cut loose a time or two.


ALTTAG

The Mulholland

Named after this famous scenic road that runs through Malibu, Mulholland has long been known as the place hot shoes go to test their metal and their mettle. From breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean; from hairpin turns to high-speed sweepers, Mulholland evokes late nights and high-speed runs.

Available for pre-sale immediately is the very same wheel design that came on the limited production Steve McQueen Edition Bullitt Mustang. It is currently available for fitment for 2005 thru 2021 Ford Mustangs. This wheel is renowned for its classic, yet modern, five-spoke styling. The staggered-design; 10” wide in the front and an even wider 11” in the rear, improves performance and adds to that do-you-really-want-to-mess-with-me swagger. This wheel features:

  • Classic yet modern five-spoke aluminum design with perfect fitment for the Mustang
  • Available in two configurations: Gloss Black with a machined aluminum lip, or in All-Gloss Black
  • 20” diameter staggered configuration: (20"x10" front and 20"x11" rear) to optimize tire fitment (recommended 275/35-20 front and 315/35-20 rear)
  • Features the distinctive and iconic McQueen Racing center cap design
  • Low-pressure castings that decrease porosity and increases strength and durability
  • Fits Mustangs model years 2005 – 2021

The Encinal

ALTTAG

Named after Chad McQueen’s favorite road, Encinal Canyon Road cuts a path through mountain canyons on the north end of Malibu Highway 1, and the Pacific. Full of twists and turns, narrow canyons, and sudden sweeping vistas through the mist, it’s another spot where Chad McQueen loves to feel the wind in his hair.

This wheel features:

  • • Modern flat cut, five-spoke aluminum design with perfect fitment for the Mustang
  • • Available in two configurations: Gloss Black with a machined aluminum lip, or in All-Gloss Black
  • • 20” diameter staggered configuration: (20"x10" front and 20"x11" rear) to optimize tire fitment (recommended 275/35-20 front and 315/35-20 rear).

  • Low-pressure castings that decrease porosity and increases strength and durability
  • Fits Mustangs model years 2005 – 2021

Pine to Palms

ALTTAG

California’s famed Highway 74; from the pine-scented forests surrounding Lake Hemet to the unforgiving desert floor in Palm Desert. The Pine to Palms Highway starts with a rugged yet somehow relaxing high-speed path between mountain peaks and then descends through dozens of hair-raising, white-knuckle switchbacks down the mountain to the desert floor below. Chad McQueen can be found enjoying this road less traveled nearly every weekend.

This wheel features:

  • Modeled after the classic Magnum 500 Wheel from 1969 with a modern five-spoke design
  • Available in two configurations: Gloss Black, or with a machined aluminum lip, and spokes
  • 20” diameter staggered configuration: (20"x10" front and 20"x11" rear) to optimize tire fitment (recommended 275/35-20 front and 315/35-20 rear).
  • Features the distinctive and iconic McQueen Racing center cap design
  • Low-pressure castings that decrease porosity and increases strength and durability
  • Fits Mustangs model years 2005 – 2021

About McQueen Racing

Chad McQueen, the only son of Steve McQueen came by his “car guy” racing genes honestly; he first experienced the thrill of speed at an early age, seated in his dad’s lap at the wheel of a Porsche 917, flying down the straights on the LeMans movie set which his dad starred in. It was clear even then that the McQueen racing gene was passing to another generation.

Like his father, Chad became a hardcore automobile, motorcycle, and racing enthusiast. His professional career started in the SCCA, where he became a national champion. He also enjoyed podium finishes in Grand-Am, driving in the GT and Daytona prototype classes. Today, Chad has in hand in numerous motorsports-related projects; ranging from movie documentaries to starting an annual car show in California to raise money for the Boys Republic, a charity near and dear to both his and his dad’s heart.

In 2010, Chad launched McQueen Racing. It’s here where he uses his wide-ranging experience and deep expertise to develop high-performance, limited edition custom cars, motorcycles, and part/accessories, all designed to capture the essential McQueen DNA. Learn more at:
