Does Panasport make a 16" wheel that will fit a 68 Camaro without any spacers. If not are there any other manufacturers that make a similar looking wheel that will fit? Ill probably be running a 275 width tire in the back.

Vintage Wheel make an 8 spoke, looks just like a Panasport, costs less and is stronger. Panasports 8 spoke is the wheel used by the Camaro cats in 69'. (Penske...etc.)

16x8x5 4 3/4 with 4.5" backspacing.
I think Panasports same wheel will cost a fortune as compared to the VIntage Wheel Works. And the strength increase is always a plus...

What kind of price are you getting? I once saw a sale around this time of year. They've also come down a little although their website still shows over $1000 or so. I think their mag ads are about $975. Nice wheels. I'm also looking at them for my 69. Nice looking and, as Chacane67 has said, strong.

Rick,

Do you have a link for Vintage Wheel Works. I just searched the web using Yahoo and Alta Vista with no success. Thanks
