Not quite done but well on my way. I'm modding a set of 951 rims for my 64C. Two extra roles of holes have been cut which brings the weight down to 8lbs 14oz each. The valve stem holes were welded over and moved to the inside of the hoop for aesthetics. Hubs were engine turned. They'll be finished in gun metal with the edges of all the holes polished along with the lip. Tires are period Dunlop B7's as per COA.

Is there a cap/hub that would fit the center whole of the Stoddard's wheel? Not the standard moon hub cap... but the 85mm center whole of the wheel.

A freind found an engraver who would engrave the knock offs just like an original Rudge. He did a really nice job and thank you to Derrek Lee for finding him.

How about some 7Kx15 906 alloy/steel wheels on a 356? I know of at least one 356 running these wheels. Note the lack of hubcap provisions.

Dave,

Would love to the finished wheel, especially on a car!

TIA,
