Found these at a random tire place - can you ID these?

Looks like no cover and a bad paint job but wanted to take them to get retouched up - probably polish or black - Anyone know these, could not find ....thanks

Zender Turbo, phase 1. If you don't want them, I'll take them. Good luck finding caps... these thing are oooold school.

Yeah I would, and then flip them to the VeeDub boys!! 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

Yeah white rims are a pain to keep clean. But look awesome when they are.. you can also polish them yourself if you got time and patience.. or you can pay me and I might do them :p

Cleaning those rims is going to be a bitch no matter what finish you decide on. Silver paint is definately too boring though. you've seen what the newer Zender Turbo's look like, right?

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".
