We moved to Kingscliffe in the Northamptonshire area in 2009 and continously strive for the highest standards of engineering excellence and service.

About Us

Since 1980 we have been restoring, reproducing, creating, innovating and building unique and beautifully engineered Wire Wheels for the Road, Grand Touring and Concours fraternity. We have fine tuned and developed high performance Wire Wheels for the Racing community and created unique, custom and one off Wire Wheels for the hotrod enthusiasts.

Wire Wheels for Road

For some it was steam trains. For others, it was horses. But for us, it was always the cars. We share your passion, and bring a lifetime of involvement, historical knowledge and engineering skill to provide the best possible wheels for your car.

Wire Wheels for Race

Light weight construction and build techniques improve performance, road handling and steering efficiency enhancing not only the look of your vehicle but also the driving experience.

Wire Wheels for Hot Rods and Custom Cars

When you want to express yourself, the only limitation should be your imagination. We have the experience and creative ability to translate your dreams into reality.

Our History

From humble beginnings to worldwide distribution

Workshop opens

Steve Hopkins begins repairing wire wheels at Langley Mill, Macclesfield, Cheshire trading as 'Specialised Automobile Services'. Many steel rims and wheel centres are no longer available so he starts to manufacture them himself.


First Borrani restorations

Steve begins to restore Borrani alloy rim wire wheels


Turrino alloy rims are first made

The first Turrino alloy rim wire wheels are made in Macclesfield. The early ones are mainly for Aston Martins and Ferraris and are individually numbered. Our records show 57 Turrino alloy wire wheels completed by the end of 1994


The 1000th Turrino wire wheel

Supplied to Hall & Fowler (now Hall & Hall) of Bourne for a Ferrari single seater in May 2000

International Patents granted for split rim wire wheels
