    Default What Wheels Are These?

    My Caterham has 14" wheels that look like Panasports or Minilites, but I cannot find any markings on them. Does anyone know what brand these are? Thanks!

    I think there was another brand that made 14" Minilite replicas called Roto, Rota or something like that.

    Rob, I've got a spare set that look just like those (although not quite as shiny as yours!)

    Not sure if they're 13's or 14's. Would be great for track as is or you could clean up and paint if you wanted shiny

    Let me know if you're interested. $200 for the set. I'm outside Baltimore. Met you at Kevin McGovern's party 2 summers ago.

    Thanks, Jim, but I'm holding off on buying wheels for a while. I appreciate the offer!

    What torque do you use on the wheel nuts?

    I have the Magnesium Caterham R500 Wheels on my 2000 Superlight, and the recommended Torque was 55 lb ft. Don't know if that is the same for your wheels though.

    I've never had any issues at that torque, and I autoxed and Track my car a lot. Tom
