THIS ---- because I have two sets of Formula 43 wheels for my yellow track car -- and bent a rim -- and nobody could re-hoop it....

I emailed these guys for hoops last week with no reply yet: http://americanrim.com/

These guys also look promising: http://www.amcrimhalves.com/

If the bolt pattern for the wheel centers can be matched up, I'll just buy an inner and outer hoop for mine.

Closing the loop: I was able to order wheel hoops from Jongbloed racing wheels in California for my Formula 43 wheels. Ryan was super helpful. They spin their own hoops and could do the 30 bolt pattern to match Formula 43. You can also probably buy them from Fikse as well but I reached out to them and didn't have any luck with a call or email back. I went with 1.5" outer hoops and 9" inner hoops. Should be arriving in the next week or so.
