1 Attachment(s)
Hi guys,

someone just offered to me these wheels. They come from a vw golf 1992 and they are OEM.
I like there style!
I'm looking for the spec of the wheel: offset, centerbore, tire size.

I'm sue somebody on here knows that or knows where to find the info.

Anybody can help me?

thanks

Steeven

Pretty sure John (dble trouble) has the exact same rims... Not sure if he has to run spacers for the 35 offset though.

Why would I need spacers? The offset of by bottlecap is 33 and the RA is 35. Would 2mm makes a difference?

Et35 is standard for non-IX e30's.

I'd personally go for a wider 7" or 8" with et 15 - 24.

They are nice, and you could pop some 10mm spacers behind them to stick them out a bit.

Cheers.

I would love to go wider, but BBS at 125$ seem too much of a good deal to pass on. What do you think? I'm not planning to track the car.

go to A vw forum or just hit the dealership and ask them to look up the year, model and pic. That should give you the specs.

Those wheels are very very soft, will bend quite easily.

But for a 125 bucks, who care's.

Oh yeah? Did you had a bad experience with them?
By the way, I still have the wheels you sold me last year. I'm planning to repaint them (again). I'm thinking to go silver for the barrel and gold for the center part.

325isStephen 12-23-2009 08:05 PM

Its a known fact that RA's are really soft.

Yeah clean em up and rock those.

Nguyen_E30 12-23-2009 08:20 PM

yup, ra's and yup double trouble has them. i used to have them too!

eta Epsilon 12-30-2009 06:41 PM

I picked up the wheels today. They are in a very good shape except 1 that must be a little unbalanced as there is a lot of ''weights'' that were installed to balanced it.:(

And there was a bonus! They came with 3 tires (the fourt one blew up). Two of them look brand new, they still have these small rubber things sticking out everywhere.*rockout*

For 125$, I think it was a good deal. Can't weait for the summer to arrive to polish them! I also have a idea to make these wheel different!
I'm happy...*par-t*

Sorry, you're right... they should be fine... I didn't realize they were only 6" wide, so yea, the offset will be fine.

ive got a set of those for my ix with black centres and polished lip. They look damn good acutally with just 205/55s on them. If one of them has a load of weights on it, theres a good chance its bent. For a normal e30, some spacers will definitely make them look better.
