Those are precious wheels, indeed.  They are American Racing "Silverstone"
wheels.  They may as well have been made out of "unobtainium," as they have
been out of production for years.  I know of noone who is reproducing those
wheels.  I had a set for one of my old Tigers back in the mid-80's and,
like an idiot, sold them when I sold the car (I could shoot myself right
about now for that).  I have seen sets advertized for as much as $1200.00
to $1500.00 per set, which is out of reach for guys like me.  

Good luck in your search.  Maybe one of these days they will get
reproduced.  I would definitely be a buyer!
