Now that people here know what you do, you are going to be a millionaire soon.

Oh, might as well join the bandwagon. Anything good for 5x108?

Haha, it's not always so easy as that. I DO have some 4x108 Libres but they are 13x8 and I'm guessing you want larger than that?

I have an unexplained soft spot for these Saab wheels. I can't think of a car I would want them on but I need one for the wall of my shop

Yea I need at least 15" for the saab. It's tempting to order some new Ronal Turbos from demon tweeks.

Very much a product of the '70s, I had some 3 piece 14"x9 a couple years ago. Wicked light!

These were 13x8  photo Picture030rs.jpg

These were 13x7  photo schmidtrabbit2resize.jpg Actually the much later version by Schmidt though.

Dodge did make a set of wheels with more holes. I 'think' they were only on the GLH cars. They were cool.

I had an 84 Daytona Turbo. Identical to this one. 1984 had 4 lugs. 1985 and after had 5 lugs. My recollection is that those without the inner ring of holes came with five lugs on the later Daytonas. I think the 4 lug wheels with fewer holes were pre-production. I think.

Im a fan of mustang ten holes and the 85-86 turbo coupe wheels. Too dumb to post a picture from my phone.

Wheels were 15x7 "Centra," which I found used at a local tire shop.

chandlerGTi, I can't tell you how many vintage wheels I've passed up which looked great at first glance, but I didn't buy BECAUSE they were staggered! Who wants all that hassle with different sizes, limited ability to rotate tires, not to mention the unbalanced handling it introduces?

Here's a few from my archives:

Enkei 92 in 14x6 +10mm...a bit like SkinnyG's Civic pic above, in case the quality of the photo...or rather, the scan of the photo....doesn't give the era away, the other cars might. This was a while back.

Some sort of awesome deep 14x7 -9mm Turbines. I bought these from a member on here, refinished them, and used them on my hatchback until 14" tires started to go the way of the dodo bird.

Hayashi Perrier Mesh in a 15x7 +4mm. I still have these on the car and will likely die with them, or sell the car with them. They meet all my preferences perfectly. Perfect offset to minimize scrub radius for my ride height, OK size for tire selection, non-stepped lip, thin/fine symmetrical spokes without any crazy bulges or curves inward/outward.

I have a set of NOS, never-been-installed Linea Sport Crimson in a 15x7 +4mm also, but can't find any pics right now. They are also about perfect for me!

They look like this, but gold, and one-piece, with a non-stepped-lip:

For rallycross and off-roading, I've found it tough to beat the sturdiness of the narrow-body Starion factory alloys, 14x6 +19mm, and a bit heavy!

For lightweight factory alloys, I love the 280ZX six-spokes! These are 14x6 and +12mm offset IIRC. They are on the left, with the Enkei 92 from the first pic on the right.

chandlerGTi, sent you a message. Questions about refurbishing a set of wheels I have.

I have these at home - need a little straightening and refinishing but I love them. 14x7 IIRC, I had planned on running them on my '83 Civic but not sure what I'll put them on now.

80's wheels rule!

1989 Nissan Maxima SE wheels, mine were painted silver from the factory but they made machined ones later on (I think)

OEM 1981 Monte Carlo checkerboards!

1981 Turbo Trans Am "Turbo" wheels!

1982-83 Trans Am Turbo Fans, more evidence of the cancelled 3rd gen 301 Turbo engine program

If you autocrossed in the '80's and '90's you know what these are! I had a set of 13x8s on my X1/9, along with a set of 5 spoke ATS's. (below actual car, but this pic is from current owner)

Here's a few. The first set I'm not strictly sure came from the '80s as they were sold on later Foxes. May have been early '90s. Cobra turbines.

And my E30, with period 4x100 16x7.5 ET23 AC Schnitzer wheels.

Another sweet 80's wheel: the ones that came on early Nissan Pathfinders that look like Spock designed them while bored on shore leave on the Vulcan homeworld.

Turbo dodge wheels http://www.uncannydodge.com/Car_Site/Info/wheels.html

The ones with a few holes are known as "pizza" wheels, and the ones with the additional holes that are smaller are "swiss cheese" wheels. Both were made in 4x100 and 5x100.

The rarest are the fiberides made by Shelby. They were a fully composite wheel sold on the 89 CSX-VNT car.
