that they have four spokes, and four studs? honestly that's probably the only similarity I can see. The spoke design isn't even the same, let alone the rim diameter, width, offset, dish etc.

My question is who came first among:

-Watanabe
-Panasport
-Minilite


I *think* Minilite came first, but I could be wrong. Any definitive evidence would be greatly appreciated.
