Wire Wheels Brand? Model? Replacement?


Recommended Posts

Hi folks.

What exactly ARE the wire wheels in the 81 Avanti?  The build sheet and paperwork just says "Wire Wheels" but certainly there is a manufacturer/model?

I've got a couple of these with some irreversible rust issues, and wondering about the ability of finding a couple of replacements, but don't have any idea what to look for or what the wallet-damage would be.

Any info is welcome, thanks!  Image of my wheel attached.

Old query, but FWIW, my Avanti had Daytons with severe surface rust.  I had them sandblasted and powdercoated gold.  Since the car was gold, it looked right.  For other body colors, there are choices of chrome, silver, and others.  The process was inexpensive, successful and has lasted well.
