      1982 280zx GL wheels on my 1991 240sx

      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.

      How about Dodge pickup steelies on a 300C?

      Obviously, this is a salvage car and these wheels were slapped on as rollers, but I love it, in a mad-max-meets-DUB kind of way.


      Da Fently!

      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.

      should be easy to guess

      And 4-lug ACVW's and 914's [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Yeah...I think he got them...the Fuchs (sp?) off a 914 ...
      That is my guess too...
      on a side note...does anyone know where you can get old style panasports in a 4 by 100 pattern to fit on a corrado? in 15 or 16 inch diameter...

      same place you would get them for a miata I presume, maybe a diffrent offset

      I can't find it right now, but I remember a picture of a Datsun 510 with 300ZX TT wheels on it that looked good... the Z drivetrain looked pretty sweet too

      Good guess, but I don't think so... here's the NA Scorpion OE wheel

      It would seem to be an Italian wheel, though...
      Alfa Spyder? Fiat 124?

      That's what the dealers sells for winter steelies around here.

      Yeah, but those weigh a ton. Probably added 10 pounds of unsprung weight...per corner.
