Those look like Minilites to me. Search via Google to locate where to buy.

Those are called Minilite wheels. The original wheels the Trans Am cars came with were magnesium I believe (someone correct me here) and were built by Ted Halibrand?? There are not available unless you luck out on an original set but they are reproduced. I heard rumor that Halibrand went out of business long ago and was bought by a group in Kansas. Don't know if this is them but they are available here...http://www.minilitewheels.us/

I *think* the original Trans Am magnesium wheels were made by some Italian outfit. Maybe Campognollo (sp?) My buddy did the wrenching for a '69 Boss 302 ex-Trans-Am car that was raced at Mid-Ohio, Watkins Glen and a few other tracks in the midwest back in the early '80s... Grabber orange. Anyway, it had those original magnesium wheels. Come to think of it, they had knock-off hubs. The car always kicked @ss if the driver didn't break something...
