Panasport.com they will give you a local dealer that retails them.

Does anybody ever use the search function? :roll:


You won't find the RS Wantanabe's on this side of the pond.

I just called Panasport. I think I got the last set of zero offset in stock. I doubt they still make these anymore, but I did not ask. The dealer I used was in MI 248-585-9139. They have 10 offset, for the L-type in stock.

I may have the rims polished and powdercoat the spokes black. Wantanabe wantabes.

My guess is the Panasports came first. I think they are the same company that made the rims for all the MGB's etc. Seems fitting, since we are driving Jap Jaguars.

Not sure I am going to do the polish and paint, will post pics either way. The one's I am getting are totally silver painted. :dancin:

I believe the British Minilites came first. Panasport is the copy.

From what I remember the Minilite style panasports only come in 16" and smaller sizes. To get the 17" and above low offset Panasports you have to go with the custom made 3 pc ones. The 3pc ones are in the $500 a wheel range from what I've heard. The other cast wheels they have are in the 30-40+ offset range and are usually 5 lug. Oh and the Minilites came 1st.
