Hi guys,
Does anyone have any pics with the Coddington Rudge wheels installed? I'm thinking of them for my 63B
Kindest regards,

This caught my eye, Minilites I think. Do they look like 15" wheels... or perhaps 16s ?

Mike

These wheels are Panosport Racing.
They are now back to raw aluminum (aluminium).
The PO painted them black.

Right you are Norm, they`re 15" Panasports. A bit of delving reveals it's Mark Motshagens car built at Willhoit Autos.

5.5 front, 6 in the rear. I'm still looking for two late (10-64) KPZ rims to make it right.

This is kind of stock but not completely and I find the look great, so I post it.

I removed the caps, inserted some drums covers from Sierra Madre and 0.5' spacers.

I also consider trying Fuchs wide five but as i am quite happy with this look, specially with my light drop, so I stick with that for the moment.

Hi Neil,

Nice wheels, I mean the whole tub's assembly. About the Coddings, what size are they and what back spacing did you settle on? Care to share your investment outlay, yep the whole thing, shipping included, per wheel. Thanks for sharing your photo. Are they available in a paint or primer only finish? Have you additional photos of your tub for posting?

Jeff,

Loose the spinners, they only serve to indicate the non functioning application of a technology that in its day had the purpose of holding the wheel to the brake hub. Your wide five lugs are clearly the means of your wheels attachment. A clean hub cover (without wings) would be just as handsome and true to the nature of your wheels attachment. Your application reminds me of how we used clothesline pins to attach playing cards to our bicycles in order to make more noise when cruising our neighborhood streets. Non functional spinners are just visual noise and just wrong for a 356, unless they are authentic knock off applications. Just my form follows function ethic surfacing where its too often not wanted. Other than the spinners, you've got a beautiful ride, and I do appreciate the wheels you found to set it off. Are they lighter than the steel rims, 15 or 16's?
