    rarewheels.hu, does a great job with sourcing and reselling classic motorsports wheels for BMW, Porsche, Ferrari, etc. The website doesn't get updated frequently, his Facebook is the best bet, and may be able to seek out something specific. Tons of LMs listed, but none in 5 x 108 right now:

    Japan:
    yahoo.aleado.com. You'll need to use one of the many proxy buyer/shipper/exporter services for a nominal fee since most private sellers are only interested in domestic sales. Pretty easy process to navigate. Actually almost pulled the trigger on a set of (relatively) dirt cheap F40 wheels that needed a refin off here for kicks to rebuild and refit to early 348 fitments with centerlock adapters. Looks like there are a few sets of LMs currently available:

    If you browse around, there can be some cool 348 Challenge and GTC bits that float around from time to time.

    Whoah! Much appreciated! I used to be the guy who was able to provide search results for hard to find things, now I feel like an old man.

    Cool links. Price plus shipping, duty and customs seems consistent with the market here for LMs when you can find em.

    Hi Vinny, Yes, they bolt right on. I did need to buy longer bolts for the rear wheels, but they required no magic to get them onto the car.

    OZ Racing 348 Competizione:
    Sorry but i cannot overemphasize: this is the most amazing wheel I’ve ever seen on a 348... probably it will look as sick on a 355... never ever saw one in real life again... this was Mugello in the early 90s when they tested the 348 GT COMPETIZIONE. a shame that these wheels never got into series...

    Look like OZ wheels used on various things. I've only seen them in center lock versions on Ferraris but I'd be surprised if they didn't make any lugged versions.

    Interesting fuel filler location on that yellow car.

    OZ Crono Magnesio wheels.

    They did lugged versions of all kinds of flavors also.

    Lots of race cars have dual fuel fillers to make fueling faster/easier depending on which side of the pit lane the wall is on.

    My thoughts exactly but then I couldn't find a single pic of one done up like that, so. I figured the LM cars would have that but they don't. Not sure the background of that particular car.

    Wasn't someone remaking the challenge wheels?

    Yes, but in the classifieds they posted that they are done with the business and are liquidating everything. Not sure if they have any repro Challenge wheels left.

    Unless you're talking about the repros from
    Europe. I thought Speedline was actually involved with those.
