wire wheels/center caps?

Hi,

can anyone positively identify these wheels?

http://stude.com/wire.jpg

Reason I need to ID them is I need at least one, maybe two new center
caps. Condition of cat logo not important (in fact I have three of them
that I'll probably remove with a hair dryer, if you want them...) The
wheels appear to be Dayton wires and I'm ASSuming that they're from a
70's XJ6 or XJ12.

thanks,

nate

They look to me to be the 70 spoke DAYTON brand wire wheels that bolt on.
The earlier 60 spoke wheels are identified by 3 armed spinners, and are not
wanted as they were prone to breaking the spokes. The one in the picture
retails new, for approximately US$300-350 depending on the retailer.

Re: wire wheels/center caps?

They do bolt on, and they are made by Dayton. Are there any retailers
that stock parts for these wheels? Or should I contact Dayton directly?

thanks,

nate

PS - thanks for confirming that I got a good deal too :) I have to
admit that I'm not a big fan of wire wheels but they fit great on my old
Stude and actually look better than I expected. I guess the bad thing
is finding a spare is going to be problematic! Unless of course one of
you Jag aficionados has a spare steel wheel they'd let go for cheap...
