Update, for the Spridget crowd, we will introducing the VTO Classic 8 in the 14x5.5 for the Spridget, we had in the Retro 4 design in that size and bolt pattern for a few years now, and are expanding it to the Classic 8 line, it will probably another 3 months or so before they are in the warehouse, but it is coming.

What is the offset on that wheel? Same as the retro four? +22

I'm doing some body work on a project car and I could use my bugeye wheel/tire to check fitment if they are going to be the same.

Hap suggested a 14 x 6 to fit a BE. The Classic 8 are available in Silver w a Polished Rim. That's what Bugsy is getting. A discussion Team on 14 x 5.5 vs 14 x 6 for a BE is in order. And any sticky tire recommendations. Not something with a 400+ UTQ Rating but not a $200+ a tire < 200 UTQ Rating. Something in between that will fit with a 14 x 5.5 or a 6" wheel. Trevor are you running a 5.5" Tire on Ugly Bug?

Oh never mind. This is an old VTO sale add from 2013. I was getting excited here.

yeah sorry about reviving old posts....been scouring the archives looking for wheel info. I did see that Hap wasn't associated with VTO any longer but the acmespeedshop.com site still shows VTO wheels?

Hap sells both VTO and Silverstone II wheels and can give you good info on fit. Give him a call, he's always happy to help.

I'm running the JBW 14x5.5 wheel mounted with Dunlop 185x60rx14 Direzza Sport Z1's this set up is smooth as silk!! Road force speed balance is the way to go!!

I don't mind the finish on the JBW's (although I really liked the gunmetal centers on the Rota RB's) but the 185/60 R14's probably wont fit under the SWA on my '65. I'd have to run a something like a 155/70 R14 and there arent many tire options in that size

I have a set of Haps 13" 8's set aside for a 65 Sprite under restoration. They do not have tires mtd as yet but you are welcome to look at them for fitment if that would help.
The car is in Norman.
