The wheels are gorgeous. I like the way the 335 tire fits on the 11.5" width wheel, the sidewall is nice and square.
Would it be safe to assume you had no problems doing business with American Republic?

Larry that same thought came up in my head but I thought, NO that isn't enough to materially change the appearance of the wheel???? But you never know. A patent attorney could probably tell you.
Take a look at the picture below very closely...what do you see changed? Both wheels are made by Coddington...the wheel on the left is what I ordered...when I got the "FIRST" set, they were made with the center on the right(rotated pentagon), I refused delivery because that's not the Campy correct design....they made a complete new set.
The centers on the right is one way to change the design enough to say its different. That is the design that some other vendors get.

Thanks George. They are great looking wheels. Dave Rittenhouse was good to deal with. The only thing was that it took a while. They had to find the correct program to make these. I would rather wait and get what I really want than settle for something that is close. He sent me one wheel for a test fit before the rears were welded. I believe there are a couple of pictures that I posted in your other thread of how they fit on the car with the back spacing I went with, the thread where you were looking for opinions on which wheel you should purchase for your car and back spacing.
Two weeks ago, I spoke at length with Dave Rittenhouse about his Campi wheels. Anyone interested in a group buy?
Hi Dave, Im interested in the Pantera East Campi design that you made for JimmyM.
$3900 regular price.
Hi Dave, to confirm our conversation.
Pantera East design Campi
17x8to9, 18x10to12,. For $3900
Will you offer 10% off if min 3 wheel sets are ordered?
I will give a group buy discount of 10% off the cost if you can have 3 or more sets of wheels. The discount is off the set of wheels and does not apply to the cost of shipping, or tax if applicable by state. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks again.
Let the group know that the order must be taken at the same time for discount to apply. The specs of course can be different per order, and I can of course get payment details separately for security reasons.
Outer Bead is their choice... Stepped or soft... &
Valve inboard or outboard.
Backspacing per customer.
Regarding... the soft lip option... I would have to create 2 new cnc programs,
as the soft lip barrel ID is larger.
If they want to do a soft lip option let them know that the windows would be larger and that my programmer charges 500 per custom program. If more than one person wants the soft lip option, they can split the cost of the program.
The soft lip version would differ slightly .... I would make the windows as close as I can to proportional factory and the knuckle bump would be on the top window like factory.
I'll send you a photo of the Boyd Campi wheel. The wheel I would create would be a little different of course. More factory looking.
Yes but not on the Boyd wheel with the soft lip. The Boyd version is a domed cap with a o-ring holding it on. The one I would do for you would have to be modified to suit the oe cap
That does remind me this wheel style does not come with center caps. They never did due to the fact that Pantera East and others had there own caps.
Dave wrote later that "the wheels will be machined to suit the snap ring cap"
Dave was very accommodating.
