Yes, it's true and they look very authentic

See them here: https://gc360enterprises.com/the_new_silverstone.html

I almost regret buying the Konigs, but these are not available in 16in., at least not now!

I don't like the way the spoke tapers at the lugs.

I had a set of mags in the 60's and really liked the look. They look to me to be stronger than the other wheels because of the way the spokes go all the way to the center hub for support.

I was looking for the price too.

I went to there add on e-bay. $785 for a set of four.

Very nice wheels but IMHO not as sharp looking as the VTO Retro 4. See ad this page. I am seriously thinking about buying a set of 15" x 6" Retro 4's in Black from Hap at Acme. Anybody purchased these and have any feedback to post here?
Thanks,

Great looking rim. I like the Retro 4's as well, but the Silverstone is a correct period looking rim. Please post more info if someone gets a set.

Thanks,

Eric

The darker ones look very much like the original magnesium wheels did. Had them on my white '67 GT6. I think the lighter silver ones would look better on my BRG TR6. Chrome ones maybe on a red car.

I "photoshopped" the black Retro 4's on to my car to try and get an idea of how they'd look. Now I'm leaning more toward their Lemans wheel which is a graphite color. The black may be too harsh for Mimosa.

I think you're right Bob. The black does look a bit harsh on the yellow. I really like the color of the LeMans too but the Retro 4 only comes in black or silver and I think the black would pop nicely on my white car. If you photoshop the Graphite LeMans please post a pic as I've been torn between the Retro 4 and the LaMans all week and have not seen the LeMans on a TR6.
Cheers,
