Wired Wheels?

Has anyone ever seen wired wheels like the 1960's MG MGA on a Solstice? Does anyone make them? If you have pictures would you mind posting? Thank you!

Yes I did. It looked great.

Think a classic look with wire wheels and a luggage rack would look awesome !

Back when I first bought my car 9 years ago I looked into this I wanted a set to match a TR6 that I owned the problem was the bolt pattern and the offset .I contacted Dayton Wire Wheel the best for this type and they were not interested in making up a one off custom set . Maybe there is someone out there that can accommodate you but I have to believe that the cost would be astronomical .

Look for knock-off wheels. The spline adapter is relatively easy to customize.

I like the look of those, especially with the dark green color. Just needs a luggage rack!

Its not as hard as you think, I had them on my MGB. I don't think that they tend to show as much dirt, and a few minutes with a pressure washer and a brush is all you need.

I love the look of the wire wheels & would put them on the solstice in a heart beat. To me it would give it a classy look. My old scoot has laced wheels & many didn't know how to tighten up the spokes correctly on it .I don't know if that applies to wire wheels on the cars. I used to clean the wheels on the bike by hand but the rear wheel would be a back breaker today by hand. I'm wondering if some one with computer skills could post a pic of a solstice with wired wheels using the new technology .

I've been trying to ignore this - unsuccessfully - so I have to say this:

The proper term is wire wheels, not wired wheels.

Thank you, I feel better now.
