Am looking for a set of Panasport wheels for an MGB: 14x6 with an offset of 15. They seem to be a discontinued size i.e. New ones are not available.

Do they have to be actual Panasport wheels? How about VTO wheels? Hap Waldrop might be able to supply what you seek. http://www.acmespeedshop.com/wheels/

Thanks for the input. What is going on is that I am trying to duplicate a set that I already have and like a lot.

Not sure about the offset - Moss Motors lists a 14"X6" Panasport.

The 14x6 wheels listed by Moss are for a Tr7/TR8+1. I think that the bolt pattern is different for those wheels (4x3.75" vs. 4x4.5 for an MGB). What I've decided to do is have a set of 10 mm offset MGB wheels machined to the 15 mm offset. I had thought about going the other way and using a shim with the readily available 22 mm offset wheels but was worried about the stud length.

The racing-stuff.com people in Michigan just informed me that the 15 mm Z-Lites will be available in the US in May.

I’m looking for a single Panasport wheel for MGB to replace my damaged one. 14 x 6 15mm offset (4” from back of rim to wheel mounting surface)

If you haven't found a wheel contact Keith at 248-585-9139 or information at racing-stuff.com. He is very knowledgeable and can probably get you a match for your wheel.
