Good Eye Mike, I didn't look close enough and thought Dan was running the original style Rudge wheel. Here's a post by Dan from another thread about his wheels.

I have a Road & Track advertisement from 1963 by Vilem B Haan, Inc showing them available for $29.95 for a set of four. Note that there is a "right" and "left" side!

$30 was not that cheap in 1963. They must have foreseen where real Rudge prices were heading.

Wow, my dad had a set of those on his '57 Coupe back in the early 60's. I think they were made by Tri Mil in Southern California. Company was best known for their extractor exhaust systems.
