Does anyone know what wheel this is?

This is what was left of my car in 1988 when it got totalled. At that time I knew nothing about cars. I just knew that it was a great car to have at 18 yrs old. Now after years of missing it I plan on building another and can't identify the wheels.
Anyone know?
Thanks in advance.

Nice looking Chalon. Ours were almost identical.
Thanks for the suggestion on the wheel name.

No. Considering building another.
I'm trying to locate the name of the wheels in the first pic.
Empi only made them in a 8 spoke. These were 10 spoke and staggered. The rear rims were probably 8 or 9 inches wide.
I know there are plenty of available wheels but I would like to bring this thing back from the dead as she rolled the day it was destroyed.

would be cool to have another chalon build going on while i do mine.
you're right on the 10-spoke, i miscounted. im still a noob on identifying the different rims
i dont see chalon's for sale too often and i think there is still one vendor producing the chalon kit but im blanking on their name (red dog or something like that)

I wish it was a 6.
The wheels are a western wheel minilite panasport copy.
Someone on another site was able to ID them also.
Thanks for the help.

That wheel looks like a Minilite. Seeing as how they are five lug it is possible.

All of the minilites I have seen were 4 lug
