<VV> Speaking of Minilites

Stingers were supplied with 13 x 5.5" steel wheels as standard. They offered a 13 x 7" wheel as an option - still steel wheels. Around the time of the Stinger introduction, the only 13" light alloy wheels, with the correct backspace and the Chevy 5 on 4.75" bolt pattern, were the Minilites. Imported from England, they were expensive for budget racers. A bit later, a few other light 13" wheels were offered, including modular wheels.  If you post a picture, we will likely be able to identify it.

In the May/June issue of American Car Collector, there's a number 43
Stinger featured.  It says it was originally raced by Jim Schardt and later
sold to Tim Allen.  The wheels on the car are not Minilites, looking more
like a custom 5-spoke that I don't recognize.  The car looks great and I
think the article is a nice tribute to all the Stingers.
Did Stingers ever come with anything but Minilites?  I thought that was the
only wheel supplied on the Yenko Stinger.
Thank you.
