Favourite was Campagnolo magnesium knock offs (a bit earlier than the period being talked about).

Second favourite would be the American Racing wheels for 4 bolt (these are also magnesium but they also came in aluminum alloy)

So, let's say I want some amazing 80s wheels for my 84 Toyota Pickup- is there a central marketplace for these things somewhere?

In reply to chandlerGTi:

5x114.3, it's 2wd. I may try to find Starion wheels for it, they'd be perfect.

Club4ag is awesome for 4x114, memoryfab, VR wheels, stanceworks, zilvia are all good places for 5x114. I have a set of DP enduros needing rebuilt if you wanna go NSX fitment

Um, what are the dimensions of those? Sort of want, although I was planning on 16x8 or 9 all around...

WAY too much offset (and spacers are dumb) but thanks for the offer. Truck needs close to zero offset for monsters like those.

Volvo knew how to do 5-spokes.  From the Virgo on the 240 Turbo:

 

 

To the Hydra on the 740/940 Turbo:

And the optional Polaris:

Original "dish" wheels.. those are my faves.  Old school mesh is pretty good too.  Racing Hart dish, Schmidt dish, BBS mesh, Japan market mesh, heck even the OEM mesh stuff looked good.   I scored a new in box set of 90's dish wheels.  Set was sitting in a local tire shop for 25 years.

I haven't gone back to look, but I bet I posted about my appreciation for Firebird GTA wheels. I now have two cars with them.  Charcoal grey on my 82 Camaro, Gold ones on my 67 Camaro.
