to the 'Iconic Minilite'
The original Minilite wheel, was probably the most
successful competition wheel of the 1960’s and 70’s.
As the name suggests, it was originally developed as a magnesium
competition wheel for the then revolutionary new Austin ‘Mini’,
but its instant success meant that it was soon to be seen on many
of the serious race and rally cars of that era. A new iconic style
was born, and to this day, all genuine Minilite wheels are made
to that original classic design. Manufactured exclusively at our
premises in the UK, Minilite wheels are ‘Low-Pressure’
die cast, in high grade aluminium alloy; machined on the latest
CNC equipment, 100% pressure tested, and finally powder coated
for maximum protection against the elements.
Originally conceived for race
and rally, demand soon grew for road car applications, and
has remained so ever since. Minilite wheels are available
in a wide range of fitments for most historic and classic
cars. Genuine Minilite is a timeless style that will always
be in fashion.
For the authentic look of the 60’s,
meeting all current regulations; our product is the only
choice for the serious Classic Car Enthusiast and Historic
