Wow... interesting read.

I only have Jentz's book on the early Panther... and it does mention 
some differences in road wheels during series production, but the 
differences were in the number and arrangement of the rim bolts.  :-|

I don't have Jentz's books on the late Panther or Tiger II, but I looked 
up his data on the Jagdtiger, and he does say the original prototypes 
were ordered with both a Porsche suspension (8x 700mm wheels) and a 
Henschel suspension (9x 800mm) and they standardized on the Henschel.
