Was going through some old HOT ROD Magazines and stumbled across this August 1976 Issue with a Wheels & Tires Guide.
Behold, there were photos of the Pacific Italia CARRERA Wheel with the "PI" Center Cap.
Also a photo of the Pacific Italia RIVIERA Wheel.
Great Image for those seeking the correct Center Caps.

Glad for that last post type3nut Very Happy all the wheels I have and found and never knew that those caps were correct for those wheels. I've seen the ones for the carrera wheel but I've never seen those caps that are on the riviera wheel Confused that's gonna be a tough one to find. Great info/reference.

Found another photo of the PACIFIC-ITALIA CARRERA WHEELS in 1973 Petersen's Complete Book of Street Machines, Wheel Directory.

Anyone have information on where the name "Performance Industries" came from?

I was informed today about the company name sake of this wheel.
Early production "CARRERA" wheels were made by PERFORMANCE INDUSTRIES but was soon changed to PACIFIC-ITALIA due to Registered Trade Mark company name rights. I was told that some of the early production wheels were marked Performance Industries and that the later wheels were not marked.
Would be a rare find of the early production, anyone have these please post a photo.
So, they Originally are PERFORMANCE INDUSTRIES.
