BORRANI KNOCK-ON WHEELS
Weʼve just received from Dougal Crawley of Longstone Tyres this release about the classic Borrani knock-on (or is it knock-off?) wheels to suit all Porsche 356s:
ʻThe Borrani Turbo Sprint RW2959 wheel, designed to fit the Porsche 356A and B equipped with drum brakes and RW4067 for the 356C with disc brakes, is finally available once more. This Borrani re-release has been manufactured using the original drawings and offers every 356 owner a sporty and elegant alternative.
ʻThe RW2959 4.5Jx15 Turbo Sprint (shown here) uses the Rudge 52 centre-lock system with integral hubs, being held on by a two-eared spinner and new special light alloy brake drums to accept the Rudge hubs. The RW4067 wheel and hub kit is designed for the disc-braked 356C.
ʻThe Turbo Sprint wheel is supplied as standard with a light alloy rim and a silver painted centre but is also available, upon request, with a 5-inch or 5.5-inch-wide rim and in a variety of custom colours.ʼ
Personally, we canʼt think of anything cooler than running a 356 on a set of these wheels! Check with ruoteborrani.com or longstonetyres.co.uk
