Mini-lites Are Back

I know they are not on a porsche and they only come in 15" size but you can get up to a 10" wide wheel. Would'nt these look cool on BB2 or other early porsches.

The only name that was refered to in the artical was PS ENGINEERING and i have'nt been able to find that co. The artical said they were pulling molds off of original mini-lite wheels.

Hmm, I wonder if they will make the 911 bolt pattern/offset. probably not. Looks like they are doing 2 piece construction, wonder why they couldnt do a 16" or 17".

Jerry,
PS Engineering has an ad in the latest issue of Victory Lane (vintage racing mag.).

It's advertised as a two-piece wheel and looks like a Minilite as used in the TransAm era. They claim various widths and offsets in a 15" wheel only, but can provide custom bolt centers. The Minilite.com website offers 15x8" as the maximum size.

They might be back but I'd never put them on an early 911 in place of Fuchs.

Thanks Sherwood for the address. The artical i saw only refered to the co. name but had no other info. I think these wheels would be a very neat addition to a resto rod Porsche, that 60's racing look.
