Nice wheels!

I’ll be putting these on my 242 this spring. They were my first purchase from a member here on turbobricks I guess like 5-6 years ago now. They are A.R.E. 398’s in 5x108 - 15x7 - et10 or 11
Cheaper replicas of the bbs rs, but still cool retro wheels.

Not cheap wheels at all, ARE was one of if not the biggest competitor when these mesh wheels were being manufactured in the 80’s. Made in Japan, cast and forged just as BBS did theirs. Some will argue ARE are better quality than the RS.

It's an unusual part but it isn't really a rare part. It's still available and there's almost 700 of them sitting in a warehouse in Sweden.

Someone always comes along and ruins the rare part party.

Maybe this will make up for it.

NOS steering column bezel for automatic 122's. It took over 20 years to collect the 3 pieces.
