Halibrand is an American maker of racing wheels and quick-change rearend housings.[2]

Halibrand started in Culver City, California in 1946. Its first product was a magnesium wheel for Indy cars, as a replacement for the wire wheels then commonplace. The slotted design favored by hot rodders is based on a sprint car design from the 1950s.[3]
