American Racing is made in China. I purchased two 15 x 8.5's to match the rears on my 79 Monte Carlo two years ago and they are sold through the parent company in Colorado called "Wheel Pros"
The rear Torque Thrusts I have were made in USA (Cast in the back ) around 2015 while these new I purchased from Summit in 2018 are from China.
I understand quite a lot of performance parts are hard to find due to the shut downs. My neighbor is trying to get a set of retrofit hydraulic roller lifters for his SB Chevy and every speed shop in Buffalo wished him good luck on finding a set on the shelf locally.

I think it’s a safe bet to just expect ridiculously long delays when ordering ANYTHING right now!! I’ve ordered a few things off of eBay the last couple months, I’m in the Detroit area and I had something coming from Tennessee and I got the tracking number and watched as it took USPS a week to even update their system and acknowledge receipt of the item, another week before it left that facility, then it went through Kentucky and Ohio in a matter of 12 hours, then for some reason still unbeknownst to me was sent somewhere in Illinois, and then to 3 different postal facilities in Michigan that were completely unnecessary, all said and done, for something I ordered and initially got a 8 day delivery time on….I got it a month and a half later

Fwiw, if it's in country it might not be bad... once it gets here.

I ordered some new 18" Ford stock wheels off ebay for one of the mustangs, same as what's on there because.... they were there and the discount price was right.

They were shipped from a dealer in New England about 1100 miles away. Free UPS ground shipping took 5 total days/ 3 business days, one of which was the days after I bought it they had a driver pick them up.

That's because they didn't have anything else they had to deliver because it was all on backorder. :)
