Christina Lam went from the sidelines to full-on track enthusiast in 8 simple steps.
*Up for sale are my lovely Ronal Turbos. 3-piece, magnesium centers
Bolt pattern- 5x100
ET: estimated to be around +32-38ish (pics will show fitment, in pics 3mm spacer front/ 5mm spacer rear)
2"-lips and 6"-barrels (original to the wheels, J-Rolled "racing" lips on both halves.)
I tracked these down from the ends of the earth a couple of years ago (really just from an atttic), split them down, had some damage on them professionally fixed and repaired. ( minor chunk missing from barrel j-roll lip, was welded back up and smoothed out just fine., and one lip had a small bend/dented j-rool which was fixed.) other then that the barrels have never been re-welded due to cracks.
Fully polished all the lips, all back to mirror finish (i left some of the moro dings and blemishes as i didn't want them to completely lose all of their character.its nothing too noticeable or wouldn't be hard to make them 100% perfect again.)
replaced all the hardware with allen-head, grade-12.9 bolts and stainless washers and nyloc-nuts as well (still have all the original bolts also).
Some chipping of paint on centers from road debris, as these wheels were designed to suck air in, subsequently sucking in road grit as well, i was going to refinish them, but now i'll leave the color choice up to the new owner....
I still have the 3 VIAL center caps that came with them, never could track down a 4th. I did end up buying some hexagonal style center caps to use, but they need some modifications to be made to fit correctly, they are just a few MM too small for the hole and need some material added to the prongs to get them to be secured... the center cap hole is an uncommon size so sourcing caps has been a nightmare. And i had some quality Ronal Logo decals made to fit them hex-caps also.
NO TRADES, Buyer Pays shipping/fees/insurance
Tires will be removed prior to shipping, and most likely will split the wheels down as well to make shipping as cheap as possible and minimize any risk for damage.
ASKING $3500 --- OBO (will consider reasonable offers, low-ballers will be ignored.)
