hello!

have bought another 75 for spare parts, and there are pretty good looking 15" wheels on it, but I can't find producer of them, and centers are missing :(

Do you have any idea what are they and where could I get center caps? they are 5x98 ET33 and "Made in Austria"...

That looks like a copy of bbs - try to compare with their center caps...



To refresh this topic a bit with Azev Type A 7.5j 16' ET:30

Spare set getting polished... :lol:

Craziest thing of all; I found set of three piece rims BBS RS 249 15' 7j ET: 30 with 5x98mm and after those I found also BBS RS 003 16' 7j ET 25 (4x100mm) and they can be combined with center spiders from RS 249 (!)

That means that I can make a set of 16' easily :) Together with spare rings of different sizes, width of wheels is not a problem any more.

marty moose - I don't know how you are fitting those wheels and tyres in at the front. Mine runs 17x7.5 et35 with 205/45 and JUST fits without rubbing (and thats with a small massage of the inner guard! I'd love to fit 215/45 let alone 225/45!

nice wheels BTW

Lets just say that the guards have been surgically altered on the inside. No real dramas on the firewall side - just scrubs a little at full lock and I may look to give that a little more clearance if that job ever gets up the priority list but the front of the guard aroung the spoiler needed to be cut away otherwise there was only about 3 degrees of turn! Its a close thing. The tyres came with the wheels - I may go 215/40 next time around to get a touch more clearance and I won't be pushing it hard until I have firmed up the front suspension a bit which is the next cab off the ranks - it was going to be the other way round but the deal on the wheels was too good to pass up...

I'm feeling this is a bit to much. They make the car look like a.. pimp/ricer mobile, rather than a alternative for a Ferrari.

The car is elegant, and I like it that way. So the wheels are importation to me.
The ronal A1's are to closed for my taste, however I do like the deep rim bed, and the circels in the wheels, like with the SZ speedline series.

Going trough this thread, I find the 17" malas a good match. However I need to make a shop how those will look on a black gtv.

EDIT:
So, we established that we like these wheels on a red gtv... but what about this. It kinda makes it look like a honda if you ask me?

dont like it, gtv not beefy enough to carry it off. they would look more at home on a Lambo or something outrageous.
