Definitely aftermarket though, and I'm not thinkin' too many E30s would have them.

But yeah, they do have a "Mopar" scent about them.

those rims look like their off a 1st gen acura integra, say 1987. Or they resemble rims off an early mercury villager, minivan. not lightweight.

I thought the winter storage rims I am using are ugly but those are epic ugly for an E30.
Mine were blue and white now sliver spray paint much better "sort of"

So, apparently they are part of the Kamei X1 body kits of the 80's. They're called Centra style 8's. They had potential to be my ugly track rims, but they weight 18.9 lbs a peice without the centre cap on them (yes I have the caps, screws and locking tool).
There was a set for sale on r3v that sold for $750 recently...

Apparently not, but I still think most Benz rims suck.

Um, probably not your old rims. I bought them off a VW in Brampton like seven years ago. They've graced four of my past e30's... Come to think of it, they're just as ugly as my Centra 8's!

^^No, I wish I had old skool VW vans... they're not uncommon rims... Eagle Alloys 15" x6" ET30 or something... I'm starting to hate them too. I just want some nice rims!
