Pontiac 8 Lug Aluminum and Buick Multi-Finned Aluminum Drum Re-lining

 

WE RE-LINE AND REPAIR ALUMINUM DRUMS TO BETTER THAN NEW CONDITION.

In 1960, Pontiac Motor Division introduced a revolutionary wheel and brake system for its full size cars: EIGHT-LUG WHEELS. This innovation was the ultimate brake system for it's time.  Made with a cast iron liner and an aluminum drum, this wheel combined the durability of iron with the heat dissipation qualities of aluminum. The result was a drum brake with stopping power superior to unfinned and finned HD cast iron drums.  The brake shoes and mechanisms where identical to the standard set up, so they are easily interchanged with standard brake drum and rim sets.
