My favorite eight (8) spoke alloy wheel was made by Hands, during the 60s-70s.  Used to see them on MGs & Triumphs of that era.

Only while doing a search this morning for a picture of one__equally rare, apparently__did I discover that VTO is doing a look-a-like version

Edit: I guess they were popular on Sunbeams too!

But those are Panasports. Do you run the Watanabes on your canoe?

I know I've posted it around, but everyone does minilites or panasports on spridgets, it's even hard to find anything else in 4x4 bolt pattern. I wanted to be a bit different and just feel like these work better. Chevy Cosworth Vega.

That looks great !  I saw a set of those wheels recently for $150, I just need to find a running, driving Bugeye for pocket change now.

Running? Driving? I guess it's debatable. Near Detroit.

why is everything nice so expensive?

Why do most modern wheels look like over done crap? So few classy designs.

Had these Panasports on the ROTUS but they were the wrong offset for the new fenders, so they unfortunately were sold.sad
 


 

I just picked up a set of these for the MGB. Can't wait to get them mounted on the car!
