Speedster Wheels - 26/09/20 11:01 AM

I was under the impression that the multi hole SpeedSter wheels were supplied by a UK company, but I've discovered that they may not be.
I have a set of 4 wheels, in black, from Shooter and looking inside the rime we discovered they are made in Italy by Fondmetal.
I do not see them on their website, so I guess that they are a special, produced for Morgan.

The 18" wheels will get Mud and Snow tyres for the winter.
Photo to follow.

Same for the AeroSS 10 spokes wheels. Fondmetal for Morgan.

https://www.imagewheels.co.uk/billet-46-alloy-wheel/ is the same concept, and perhaps what you were thinking of Peter?

The https://www.rayswheels.co.jp/products/wheel.php?lang=en&wheel=57TranscendOM and https://www.fondmetal.com/en/cerchi-in-lega/9performance/9rr-silver are a pretty good match for the 10 spoke wheels.

But on reflection it looks as if it has lost a hubcap.

Are the Fondmetal Morgan wheels forged or cast I wonder. The Rays wheels on the website appear to be cast. I thought the Aeromax ones where forged.

I know the wheels that Rimstock made for my S4 were forged

The Aeromax wheels on my S4 are Rays and are stamped as Forged

Blimey, for the price I'd want the real deal, not forgeries.
