It might be good time to buy those wheels as Yen is strong nowadays!
Thanks

I don't think PS Engineering makes GT40 wheels either (but wouldn't swear to it).

M&A castings definitely *does* make them however.

You could also contact any CAV or Superformance dealer, and they could undoubtedly supply you with wheels as well.

Mike:
Compomotive used to make a wheel that looked very similar to the one you posted.
I think they offer a 3 piece setup with choice of widths and backspacing. Might not be what you are looking for but worth a look. Classic and Special Order Wheels
Cheers
Phil

Re: GT40 Halibrand wheel...where to get them?

I have just been in touch with Phil Schmidt. He says he no longer makes the GT40 MkII Halibrand style wheel.

Re: GT40 Halibrand wheel...where to get them?

M&A Seems to have the only "wineglass" castings I've seen and I really prefer that look. Will they fit a CAV or Superformance pin drive hub? Are CAV and Superformance pin drives spaced the same and are those wheels interchangible?

Re: GT40 Halibrand wheel...where to get them?

Veek,

I do not know if this might be of any use for you, but my original mag BRM wheels fit my SPF without major mods. I only had to grind the calipers a little on top.

Hope it helps.

Re: GT40 Halibrand wheel...where to get them?

I can vouch for the PSE wheels. I have the very first set of 17 inch BRM's on my GTD GT40. They have taken all I have been able to throw at them for several years.

Drop Phil a email at his web site contact email address above. I just saw him down at willow springs a few months ago. He is still turning out very good wheels.

Re: GT40 Halibrand wheel...where to get them?

I have 2------------15X9 1/2, 2 1/2" backspace.They are very nice(no curb rash) with 6 pin drives and Halibrand knock off's.The wheels are magnesium and the knock off's are aluminum.The drives are not the original and will need to be machined.They are original Halibrands and have the name as well as Lola on the inside along with the original green oxide primer.I am wondering if they were ever mounted due to the wonderful condition.Let me know if they are of interest.

Re: GT40 Halibrand wheel...where to get them?

I have a set of four SPF (WAW) aluminum BRMs avaiable. New,they have never had tires mounted on them. Not Halibrands, but perhaps they will work for you. PM me for details.

Re: GT40 Halibrand wheel...where to get them?

M & A castings no longer make the wineglass style Halibrand. Image certainly do. There is no picture on their website, but they have the pattern and will make a set if asked (I just ordered a set....). Very accommodating guys.
