The original Spec Racer Renaults had some cool four-spoke wheels--vert Libre-like. My understanding is that the molds were lost in a fire, though.

pretty ... yes ... but we have several sets of these on the SRF team ( 3 cars ... multiple sets of rims ) and without extended length studs these are the biggest PITA to change (especially when hot ) of any rim I've ever been around

I have two sets of wheels for the Capri. The Libre has already been mentioned. This is the other.

These Saturn Ion wheels are almost likeable... 16" though and I want 14s or 15s.

I would give my sisters first born for a set of Libras in 15"x6.5" to fit my CRX. Anyone have pics of others that look good on a CRX?

I sported libres on the Fiat for the first year

Photobucket

There is a company making replicas of them in 15X6 and 15X7 but they eschew 4X100 for some reason

I'm on my phone or I would post pictures. Volks 4/5 are the original version of those AXIS/Rota the spokes. They were four spoke fronts and five spoke rears. I've been wanting tp get two sets to match up four four spokes though....

I have a set of Opel rallyes but the offset is wrong and the there is a serious lack of decent 13" rubber. I kinda dig the styling though...

Anyone know of anyone that can rebarrel a 13" wheel to a 14" or 15"?

FWIW there is a German company that does this:

Hey, I have those! Well, 3 of them. Two are insane, like 13" x 10" and one is a 13" x 8". Uni-lug, 4-spoke, Cragar S/S look. They're in the back yard. I'd been saving the pair of 10's for drag slick mounting for a future SA/FB RX-7 build.

No need to sacrifice your sisters 1st born... VTO makes a reasonable facsimile in 15x6 and 15x7, Not sure what they cost though.

Not sure what they'd look like on a CRX, though.

I believe those are Rostyle wheels- available on several cars of the era, including Capris and MGs. They're available in several offsets and patterns.
