      GLWS, but based on your description this is a 7.5" wheel, not an 8.5".

      That's why I gave both measurements (outer to outer and bead to bead). Some people measure from bead to bead and others measure from outer to outer. There is, also, the full set of 2" slants and new bolts, so everything someone would need to make these an 1" wider overall. I would keep them and refinish them, but when I bought the car they were on from my brother, part of the deal was the wheels would be sold to help him recoup a bit more money.

      Love RT's, very hard set to come by.


      In case anyone didnt know, RS centers, lips, wheel screws/nuts, hex nut, and centercaps swap out between the two. The waffle does not as on an RT its flat and RS's have the cross pattern. Just a heads up for anyone interested.

      I have done my best to document any cosmetic blemishes there may be in any of the lips or paint. Please note that one of the barrels does have a hairline crack, as shown in the picture below. I'm sure this could be welded/repaired, or replacement barrels can be had pretty easily. Any 16" BBS RS lip or barrel or hex cap will work with these wheels, almost all of the parts are swappable.

      They are, sorry for the delay in responding, I don't get on the Vortex much anymore. If you're still interested, they are still for sale. It would probably be better to hit me up on facebook (longballrally) or email me at info @ longballrally.com.

      This set came off of my MK2. But my buddy Collin bought my other set (yes, I had two sets of these, I'm a wheel whore what can I say) and they looked amazing.

      The hex caps themselves were identical to the ones you'd use for an RS' the flat cap portion I don't have any specs on, sorry. Jump on FaceBook and look for That Wheel Guy (https://www.facebook.com/thatwheelguy), he's the dude that bought them from me and I'm sure he'd be happy to answer any questions you might have. Tell him Kieran/Long Ball Rally told ya to contact him.
