I've loved these wheels for at least 15 years, finally own a set! 18X8.5", 225/40 Continentals. Centerbore is too small, gotta have that fixed, but they're awesome! Got flat caps with the wheels, bought the hex caps myself. I think I like the hex better, what say you?

I like the hex if you could match the finish to the wheel. But I don't think you can, so flat.

Those look great Rob, glad they went to a good owner!

Please tell me you're going to properly account for Ackermann angle adjustment when you do this conversion.

That's not accounted for in your conversion? No Buchka robot operator?

hot. i am jealous you got them, but glad they are on this side of the country.

i like the flat caps better (dubber in me), but the hex caps would be sweet if they matched the finish on the centers.

I REALLY like those wheels with the flat caps.

I think you should do a photo shoot of that car with those wheels on there. Especially tucked like that.

I was thinking the same thing

What year is that one? 88-92 it looks like. Learned to drive on an 88 (in MD no less!) with a manual

Also the type A's look awesome
