About two years ago when I needed wheels for my HP Spitfire I got some
Panasports through Spruell Motorsports (www.spruellmotorsport.com --
Don't worry that their website at the moment doesn't show any 13" wheels
under Triumph. Call 'em up, tell 'em what you need. They'll order direct
from Panasport. I was in a big hurry, so they put me in contact with the
Panasport guy and I ordered them direct from him, but he only sells through
dealers so I did the sale through Spruell.
In my case -- because I was in a rush -- the Panasport guy had wheels on the
shelf with 4" backspace, so I bought them and he drilled them for the
Spitfire bolt circle and my stud size. Then I had a local machine shop make
me spacers. And they use regular lugnuts.
If you have the time, you can get them with the right backspacing and setup.
Spruell and Panasport both worked to take care of me with the speed I needed
at the time. It was much appreciated.
