    Does anyone know when its time to get all new wire wheels?
    My Borranis are 50 years old on my Daytona.

    Ive learned that its almost the same price to restore them than it is to buy new ones.
    Thanks!

    I don't think it's an issue of time, it's condition. Corrosion and loose spokes would be a concern before age. I'm curious, does the Daytona use type 42 splines?

    I agree Mr. Martinez, it's more about the condition than age.
    Some model/size Borranis found in Daytonas are not available new, so restoration is only the choice.
    Besides, Borranis aren't correct wheels for Daytona anyway IMO ;-)
