....The GT race cars of this, and other era's used a BBS mesh spoke race wheel, usually with the gold spokes. Even though the photo shown has a wheel with yet a different spoke, if you check the dozens of photos of this car and many other Datsun racers of the same era, you will find that you could use the more common BBS wheels I mention. Fujimi makes many set's of various BBS wheels with various tire combo's as well....Ebay is the ticket once you get reference photo's, as I don't know  where to find the exact wheel you seek....but remember,,, wheels changed race to race, event to event, so using the more common BBS would do nicely....just a thought....the Ace....;)...///////...I just Googled  up ' Paul Newman Datsun's'...and, as I mentioned, the car is shown with various wheels depending on the time, event, etc, some even showing silver mesh BBS wheels as well, and even other set's including some photo's using Mini Lite's . Anything you use mentioned would be period correct.......Ace..

These are Japanese wheels, I am still trying to find out the make and type. I would just run BBS or Minilite style wheels. Maybe even some Watanabe Wheels

the AMT 81 datsun 280zx turbo comes with BBS wheels too. though it would not be wide like a racing tire. i also have a sealed Paul Newman Datsun race car. It will probably stay that way.
