|Avon Safety Wheels,
|The Avon Safety Wheel avoids the detachment
of a deflated tyre by having a much shallower
central recess within the interior of the wheel.
The recess is so shallow that the tyre is prevented
from twisting, what would allow it to slip over the
edge of the rim, so it is retained. Such a shallow
recess would also prevent the fitment of new
tyres, if it weren't for the inclusion of a deep
channel, allowing the bead of the tyre to enter
the channel to permit fitting. The channel is
covered by a metal band that is tightened around
the wheel after the tyre is fitted but before it is
inflated. (Source: wikipedia.org)

|Mamba, 8x10"||This is an sand cast 8" wheel used on a 'Terrapin' single
seater racer in the late 60's. Allan Staniforth and some
friends where in desperate need of some wide wheels
for theyr Terrapin single seaters. After banded steel
wheels got banned by the regulations, they decided to
cast theyr own wheels. That's how the 'Mamba' project
started. There where probably less than 30 8" wheels
being cast (sand cast by hand!). At the time being, it was
as light and solid as a magnesium Minilite, but much
cheaper to get - so it got quite a popular wheel back then
and still is.
|Mamba, 5x10"||Mamba lightweight alloy wheels were made by John
Thornton, back around 1966-67. They were designed
for Minis and were available in 5", 5 1/2" & 6" as
standard. Any other size on special order; these large
sizes were used on single seaters of the day. John
Thornton was also a friend of Alan Staniforth the
designer/constructor of a Mini-based world record
holding home made single seater called the Terrapin.
The Mamba project was sold in the early 70's and has
passed through many hands since, the last firm to make
Mambas was probably MWS some years ago.
|Mamba, 5x10"||The early edition had valve stem "inside" rim hidden
amongst the spokes (see above) while later version
had valve stem in outer rim. The wheel pictured is
believed to be a very late made wheel due to the
general 'softer' appearance.
|Mamba, 6x10"||There are japanese copys around; the main difference
is where the valve comes out of the rim, the "real" ones
come out straight from the outer rim and the japanese
ones come out of the black bit and on a 45° angle Also
available as 5x10"
