On  noticing the healthy sum recently offered for a set
of Silverstone wheels  on e-bay I e-mailed AR
suggesting there's money to made in making wheels  for
TRs.  They were ahead of the game and told me they
will be  re-introducing the Silverstone in 45-60 days. 
Pics are already up on their  website
( - see Vintage, page 2).  I'm told
the  wheels were re-engineered for todays braking
materials (I read that as  strengthened centers).

Am I missing something here? I have had a look at ARE's  website and whilst I 
see a "Minilite"  or "Panasport" looking thing I  certainly do not see what 
looks like a proper "Silverstone" eagles beak 8-spoke  design.
Maybe someone will be able to point me in the right direction  because if 
this is what ARE intend to sell as the Silverstone modern day copy I  for one 
very disappointed. Come on ARE give us what you did in the sixties  only now 
and correct !!
