Hi guys can you help me identify these three piece wheel centers the one on the right is cicada (doug trengove) but what are the other two? i think these are all Australian wheels
Also when were modular wheels first used and made, oddly enough these centers from different manufacturers use the same size rim halfs

cheers
Fred

P.S. i hope the image works my first go

The one on the left is I think an ASP wheel, only 13", so is the right though possibly originally with Trengove.Both South Aussie and I think still advailable, contacy me for details.
Centre one dont know
A lot of composite rims share bolt patterns, 8 of 5/16 bolts for 8 bolt or 16 1/4 bolts for 16 bolt [13" only]

G'day,

The right wheel is an ASP wheel to the best of my knowledge, and was used on a lot of Elfin race cars in the seventies. Are these still made?

Hope this helps.

I'd be interested in the wheel centres on the right as well.
The ones on the Fielding are getting a bit long in the tooth
