If the spare set is for racing, then I would definitely track down the best possible rubber and buy a tyre to match.

But again, being true reproduction, the Trigo do not come in any other configuration... 15" is it. For larger, try PS engineering.

By the way, I noted in the Australian Snake Tales mag, there is a full set of Trigo's with rubber fitted for $3,000 AU. Might represent a significant saving over new. It read - mint condition.

There is also a set of 17" PS engineering wheels for sale here on the coast, still in the box for $4500... I guess you could negotiate.

If that is interesting to you, I will email details.

Regards

Cameron

Another thought. If you go for the US wheels, get the tyres fitted in the US before you ship. If will prove a cheaper option thana asplit shippment and the tyres will protect the rims.

If you want a nice locally made Halibrand replica speak to Tom at Ozwheels. He does some beautiful work and makes a lot of performance wheels. He does a lot of stuff for the Porsche race cars and also made the rims for the 427 Monaro race car that's been cleaning up nations cup. He made the pin drive wheels on Justbetter's Superformance too.

He's in Ingleburn NSW and his number is (02) 9606 6468

He's currently making my 17" 3 piece Halibrand pin drives and they should be ready in a couple of weeks. I'll post some pics when I get them.

Cheers

Hi Ant, I can also recommend the Ozwheels as I have a set of 2 piece 15" rims.... 8" and 10" on my car.

They are essentially the same as Aussie Mike will be getting and are a very nice wheel. The three piece have bolts around the perimeter where as mine have the centers welded in.

They difference between these and the original Halibrand are that they have 5 "spokes" as opposed to 6 spokes of the originals.

Mike...thanks for the transmission advice the other day..most helpful

Sounds Good Mike,

Do you know if he is making custom offsets. And do you have a rough on the price for a set of 4?

Thanks

Cameron

Default Which Tyre?

Cameron,

Thanks for the info, the full set of Trigos with rubber fitted would be of interest to me. Also the PS wheels are they pin drive?

I would still get the pin drive hubs etc in from Trigo if I go that way, and maybe look at a spare set as above!

Aussie Mike, Rebel 1

OZ wheels, and yep nothing wrong with the 427 Monaro eh! Just a ballpark $$ figure on the OZ wheels and pin drive setup, if thats possible.
We have Arrow 3 piece wheels here nice and light pin drives but a lot dearere than Trigo.

The PS Wheels are pin drive and available now from Don Pilling at Snake Bite +61 7 55 290 877.

The Trigo's are advertised by Mike Helmers on +61 3 9744 4591. Rubber is Yoko 510 at 225 front and 352 at 265 rear.

Good Luck

No problem Les. Just goes to show I'll chat about Cobras with anyone, even Queenslanders It was good to catch up with you.


Ozwheels make their wheels in any offset you want. Mine are a pretty radical offset on the rear with an 8.5" back space on an 11" rim. I believe the rims halves that Tom spun op for that up for the monaro were about 9" or 10" and there's not many people than can spin a rim half that deep.

The set of 4 rims from Ozwheels works out to about AU$2,800 The pin drive adaptors I got from the local Superformance agent CTC. Bryan did me a rock bottom deal on 4 adaptors spinners and nuts for AU$1320. The only problem is the adaptors are Ford stud pattern so I had to re drill them to fit the Jag front hubs on my car.

The CTC guys are super helpful and I reccomend you give them a call for a chat. They also had some beautiful 15" rims to go with the adaptors and I think they were very reasonably priced (possibly cheaper than the Ozwheels from memory) Unfortunately they weren't available in different offsets. I believe the rims are identical to the trigos since that's what Superformance used to run before they started making their own.

Cheers

OZwheels and OZ-Wheels are two different companies. I think Tom has been trading under the name OZwheels for a long time and it's supposed to be a play on Ozzie or Aussie and not trying to pretend to be OZ-Wheels.

He's not quite into the computer age yet but he has email. His health has been playing up and he thinks he might sell the business in a few years. He seems to have more than enough work to keep him busy without needing to advertise.

Cheers

Default Pin drive studs

Cameron,

I just had a funny thought regarding the pin drive studs that drive the wheels and hold the adapter on the Trigos, what threads are they?

I would assume you would have to specify as Jaguar is 1/2" unf sae!
I have 7/16" unf studs or normal Holden etc allround.

Good point Ant,

and yes they are for the JAG setup. I am sure Trigo will be able to source for you. I tried to source some local extras, just in case, but the Trigo studs are a fraction smaller in diameter than the off the shelf units (Sparco etc...) and the tolerance is so fine, they will not fit!!

Regards

Cameron

Default Wheels

Cameron,

With the adapters I assume that the original "press in" wheels studs are used?
I have read where they have a cap screw or suchlike to hold the adapter on?

I received a message from the seller with the Trigos and tyres for sale - they have been sold!
