944 forum one bolt wheel
When I was young wheels that were held on by one big bolt thingee were commonly called knock offs (usually wire wheels) but were technically Rudge Spline wheels. Today they are called center lock. Is the locking mechanism (for want of a better term) the same as it was 50 years ago?

The torque wrench alone is like 2 grand, 2013 at 9:07am, 2013 at 10:53am, 2013 at 11:00pmDuring the early 911 era, I saw a 356A or B option book which listed wire wheels, also. Never saw any of these. The 356C option list was printed on one cardboard page. Factory installed rollbar was one of these and cheap. In one of our moves I lost all my porsche literature and this was one of the things which disappeared.Last Edit: Aug 27, 2013 at 9:14am by Aug 27, 2013 at 12:15pm, 2013 at 7:10amWhen I built my Speedster, I met a lady with an original set of Ridge wheels. They were knock offs with spinners for center locks. I didn't know better and when she asked $3500 for the set I politely declined. After discussing it with the Hineses who were building the car with me I went back and tried to buy them and they were long since gone.

They were cool but screamed of my attempt to duplicate the correct treatment and configuration. I ended up with smoothie, half moons and the only part of that car I didn't do right.
