    I picked up an old pair of mag wheels today. Does anyone have any information about P&B Wheels Inc. Oakland, California?

    Still not sure who the B is for, but they are most likely an American racing wheel before the American Racing company was started. Palimedes & ?

    Pictures would be nice, safe to guess they are a 4 hole wheel?

    These are probably the ones you're thinking of.

    I've also seen the oval window ones marked that way.

    Old friend Chuck Turner did some wheels with Romeo Palamides around Oakland just prior to the American sale...
    They made some sets of 2-piece 5 spokes with slat hub caps...for F100s.
    Had a 'solid Kelsey-Hayes' look to them. I have a set on my F100.

    Dick Beith had opened E-T Mags right after...Could Dick be the 'B'?
