Gliding Serpent.. Thanks for posting the Beach Auto car. Bought my first 02 from them in 1993.

Were these taken at Mosport? Wonder what happened to their two cars.

Those are great pics.  Wheels come available (farily regularly actually), though the aren't cheap, usually about $500 or so a corner.  Back in those days they were all run flat base so there is no provision for using a tire machine to install/remove rubber.  Essentially the wheel is assembled around the tire - time consuming and tricky (definitely not a "pep boys" job).  The guy that does mine charges me $75 corner and balances.  I have seen them mount one, what a bear of a job.
