    If you're talking style, there are tons of people who make that design of wheel, in fact panasport can be considered to be a knock-off themselves! They're a copycat of old minilite wheels.

    Minilites are an old design, but I've got a new set of 15 x 7s coming.

    Panasports are made in Japan. The ones made in China are other Minilte copies. Panasports are stronger and are worth more than the similar-looking Chinese wheels.

    I agree with all three answers but to correct your original question, MAKES, not "made." They're still making them.
