Hey, check this out.... new American Racing Silverstone rims. In the 60's, these rims were very poplular not only on Sunbeams but Triumphs, too.
Too bad they don't offer a 13" rim but maybe if there are enough enquires they might offer them.

Not totally faithful to the orginal design which is unfortunate... but they would still look great on an Alpine or Tiger. They could really compete as an alternative to Mini-lites...

They look allot like the Panasport I bought for my 8 and probably allot cheaper. Trouble with 13 inch, and even starting to be a problem with 14, is the lack of tire choices. If i had to do it over, I would have gone clear to 15 inch...

Just some food for thought guys, but I'm a Superlite dealer, we can drill blanks to the Sunbeam's bolt circle on any of our wheels. The price is reasonable and the quality of the wheel are equal to Pansport in my opinion. If interested visit my below linked website and I'll be glad to help you out with wheels.
