Unless you're VERY lucky, probably finding a set in a dusty corner of a
specialty shop or parts place, you're pretty much out of luck, AFAIK. I've
been bugging the American Racing rep here for about 5 years trying to get a
couple of sets and even though the number was, may still be, in the catalog,
I keep being told that they're NLA.
A minor point, but didn't BRE actually use the American Le Mans wheel, at
least originally of their roadster(s) and maybe the early 240Z's? I think
they started using Libres on the 510 and maybe on the Z they ran in C Prod
before the 2.5 TransAm 510 campaigns.
