    Thread: Inspired examples of OEM wheels on the "wrong" car!

    1. 12-15-2005 07:56 PM #1
      I see this car every time I drive down the street near my office, and finally I just had to stop and take a picture:

      It's certainly a combination I haven't seen before!

      Unfortunately I don't have a photo of the FC RX-7 I saw in Louisiana fitted with the Mustang's optional Torq Thrust D wheels. That was totally fresh. Have any good examples of your own? Post 'em!

      Correct me if I'm wrong... but those are... Starion/Conquest stock rims on a Benz?


      EDIT: In case I'm wrong and anyone thinks I'm crazy for thinking of Starion/Conquest first...

      Do Chrysler minivan hubcaps on our old Golf count?

      It got hit, and the insurance company decided that any hubcaps would do, so we got a loverly set of *five* lug wheel covers. It looked freaking bizarre. I had a new set from Hubcap Heaven within the week.

      Theres a mid 90's Civic in my neighborhood with a nice set of mk2 VW snowflake rims. I talked to the guy one day, and he had no idea that they were VW rims.

      I'm guilty...
      Scion Tc wheels...

      But for $300, it was hard not to pick them up...

      Can't be those, the LeCar (Renault 5) had 3-lug wheels, and those old 4-lug Peugeots had a weird big-4-lug pattern (4x130 I think) that they only shared with Subaru.

      Another example of OEM wheels on the wrong car that looks so right

      I had Audi TT 5 spoke forged wheels on my MKIII Jetta GLX. I guess I like using decent looking CHEAP wheels.

      Old style, with US big bumpers and the Porsche Cup II wheels

      Later with Euro bumpers, TT wheels, and much cleaner "Euro"

      I don't have a pic of my car handy but here's a quick and dirty composite of a NA Miata with the same MINI R81 wheels I have. I was going after the old Alfa holey-wheel look.

      I knew of a MkI Mr2 with BMW bottlecaps on it, but I can't find the pic >:|

      There's also a '96-ish Cadillac DeVille rolling around here with 9C1 copcar wheels.
