What are some good sources for Halibrand and BRM "Style" rims in the US? I am thinking about building my chassis. I really need something with 5 on 4.75 pattern. Image in the UK has a number of good looking options but would like to avoid international shipping......
Thanks everyone and thanks for the offers Scott and Neil. I'm building a street car with Corvette hubs and may keep the brakes. If I keep the C5 or C6 brakes, I don't think they will fit in a 15 inch wheel. Looks like I'll be looking at Vintage or Image. If anyone knows of other sources for these let me know. I built a Cobra 12-15 years ago and used Vintage, they were nice and I have been satified, they're still on the car. The GT40 originals were 15x8 and 15x10 what were the original back spacings?
I built a FFR Cobra about the same time you did. I used Team III wheels and was pleased with them. It looks like Team III was bought by ET Wheels but the wheels I bought are still available. http://www.etmags.com/ac_iii.html .
I'm using late C4 Corvette hubs and brakes (12" rotors) on my build. I wanted to use 15" wheels for a period-correct look but it doesn't look like 15" wheels will clear the calipers so I'm going with 17" (better selection of tires too).
Thanks Charlie. I just got back around to revisiting this thread. I'll have a look. I may go with the wide rear so may go to 12 inch wide on the back. I intend to use C5/C6 brakes so I'll be in 17's as well.
