Mag Wheels is a 1978 American vansploitation film directed by Bethel Buckalew. John D. McNally originally co-wrote the story with Buckalew. Main stars include John Laughlin, Shelly Horner and Phoebe Schmidt.


Local ladies' man Steve, who drives a souped-up van, is attracted to Anita, the new girl in town. Trouble ensues when Steve's obnoxious girlfriend Donna catches on to the flirtation and decides to do something about it. False drug-trafficking allegations and a smorgasbord of saltiness send this story to a dizzying climax that leaves viewers on the edge of their seats wondering if the sweet newcomer will make it out of the small-town love triangle alive.

Donald Guarisco of AllMovie rated it 2.5/5 stars and called it "unexpectedly ambitious" for a B movie.[3]
