Yeah I would, and then flip them to the VeeDub boys!!*th-up* Surely they know of caps from something else that would fit (caps off P-Slots or Teardrops might work).

See, the VW guys love this shit! (at least they did back in 1985):

Its not a hole but it looks like the cover screw got stuck and it was ripped off, very badly ...... but definitely want to restore them. have not decided whether to go black or stock, but I'm pretty sure the rim shop on Caledonia will have a solution - they quoted $400 for the refinishing and I will ask if they can throw in some fab covers/similar solution if possible -
wow btw thanks alot guy..... good stuff

If you think the Ronal Turbo is "slightly" sicker, you're need to look at the "Ronal Racing Magnesium 3pc splits". Schmidt TH's are terrible looking. They're just meant for MKII VW's to play dress-up. They're for the guys who can't find Ronal splits. Oh, and you can get Zender Turbo's in 16".

No, those E34 hubcaps he sent me a picture of a while ago (on the black e36 above)... they look like M5 Turbine rim from a far. I thought the pic he sent em looked closer to the actual M5 turbine covers, and less like those hubcaps.

Regardless, i'd rock those hubcaps if I could find some 16"x8" steelies with a decent offset, 4x100 bolt pattern, and 57.1CB.

I just keep coming back here for the first pic in post #28!!

You know what bothers me about some turbo rims? Rarely do they make them directional (two lefts and two rights). I mean the whole principal behind the turbo wheel pushing more air over the brakes is a little far fetched to me, but it that's the case, then shouldn't they be made specifically for each side of the car (like the salad shooters below)?

Ronal Turbo's which was brought up but looks nothing like the Zenders:

You can rent my time machine and go back 20 years to see if Enkei still makes them. Otherwise, you can wish that someone is selling them on Vortex or something. BTW, I think they're only like 14x6.5... not even sure if you can get them in 4x100. Aren't old school wheels fun?!:cool:

ahhh hell really eh...
I thought they were some throwback design on some newish company making cheap cast wheels (like XXR) that were going to start mass producing them...

drat drat and double drat.

Closest thing you'll find to those being produced new is the ones from Memoryfab (post 31) Enkei brought back the 92, maybe they'll bring back the Turbo Mesh, or not.
