compomotive replica knock-off
 
Hello I am brand new to the site and lookin for help. I have an older cobra replica that came with compomotive cobra replica wheels. It has been missing a knock-off since i purchased the car and is driving me nuts trying to find one.i have contacted compomotive and they could not help. the center hole of the wheel is aprox. 2.5 inches and is held on by 3 little allen screws. does anyone know where i could find a knock-off thanks jim

Welcome to the site..I may have what you're looking for. I have some 16" compomotive wheels that I can no longer use. I have to find a new set of wheels for mine unfortunately. I'll go look out in my barn when I get the chance and see what I've got. If you want to send an email to me at jenninrk@jmu.edu with your mailing address ect. I'll see what I can do.

i have the same wheels, there are no sources for a replacement except used.

they can be copied by any competent aluminum casting shop. cost will be the issue there.

Thanks for the help pretty tough to find thats for sure

I am in the same boat as Bugman. A set of 16" wheels with all of the extras but can’t find a matching set of tires in the size that I want. Not willing to let one spinner go but if you have anything else that is trade-able and comparable (sp) $ wise--------.

What about welding a sleeve in the middle of a screw on knock off?

Howdy,

I have 3 of, but with 1 tiny grub screw holding them in place.
1 is broken.
But if they suit they are yours for free!
Send me an email with photo, and I will send you a photo, not good at uploading on this site!

By the way I am in the great land of Australia!

Soul.

Bad terminology
 
Just wanna say thanks to all that are trying to help . Also youll have to forgive me for not knowing the correct name of the part i am trying to find. I have been calling them knock-offs but i have also heard spinners and tri-star cap . So if you have any of those please help ha jim

jimbo3c 04-11-2013 09:39 PM

I believe thats the one, and what is the correct terminology for this?

jimbo3c 04-12-2013 10:06 AM

Hello the pic that FWB posted is what I am looking for. also to bugman ,
I have resent the e-mail ,will come up as jcelectric3 Thanks FWP for posting pic and to all trying to help

tcrist 04-12-2013 11:13 AM

Actually that is not the one if Jim's has the three screws holding them in. The one that FWB posted looks to be held in by an o-ring, not screws.

Also, the one that Bugman has probably is not the same either if it has a single "grub" screw.

They might be able to be modified, but you will have to have all four for it to look right.

hello heres a pic of my wheel and fake spinner

gt40gordy 04-12-2013 12:43 PM

That's It
 
I have the same wheels as yours (Comp's) and took off one of the knockoff's to compare to the photo. Mine look exactly like the photos posted, including the recessed groove, and are held in with three small Allen screws.

Terry, the three set screws are threaded into the wheel around the hub they protrude into the center and catch the groove in the spinner so they don't accidentally fly off.....some are like mine and there are others that have three sockethead cap screws on the face that thread into the wheel. into the holes shown on the face of the hub

the aluminum casting foundry here can sand cast these from a sample, i would do this if i knew i could actually sell them, the little bit of machining on the back side is a simple lathe operation.....i would have to make at least 50 to keep the foundry happy on pricing

FWB 04-12-2013 04:05 PM

a tidbit of advise for the set screws, order some long set screws in stainless and keep a bunch of them, the hex gets worn quick from the wrench and its best to keep them new to avoid loosing the spinner or not being able to get the set screw out

FWB,
