Vintage race car wheels come in all shapes and sizes. From wire wheels on a 1937 Bugatti to high tech, 3-piece BBS basket-weave wheels on a GT race car, vintage race wheels run the gamut in style, size, and material composition. Here we would like to feature several types of wheels that were used on cars that raced at the famous Bridgehampton Raceway in New York. Though the track is no longer there, the cars that famously thundered through the rolling dunes do live on and we are lucky enough to see what types of wheels carried these sports cars through battle.
