Wednesday Wheels Roundup

Yesterday, Adam at Fast In Fast Out posted an article covering some of the best vintage racing wheels. I love wheels, and it was fun to see Adam’s article – plus, it also got me thinking about another wheel roundup. Adam asked in his article what was missing – so I found a few that I thought where absent from the lineup but are always fun to see. There’s a set of mega-rare and mega-expensive Campagnolo racing wheels for early BMWs; boy, do they look impressive though! Then there were some great Audi S6 Speedline-made “Avus” wheels. Later models were made by Ronal, but the originals came from the Italian manufacturer. Speaking of, there are a set of the infamous and often-sought Pirelli P-slots for Volkswagens below. Then there is a wild set of Gotti wheels – in some cases, these were raced on factory Porsches as an alternative to BBSs. Check out the width on those rear tires!!! Rota has made some replica wheels recently of some great designs; these both copy the BBS race wheels but also mimic some MSW and OZ designs as well – and boy, are they affordable! Then there are a great set of Ronal R9s that mimic the ATS-made “Penta” AMG wheels; the ATSs are usually more valuable but harder to find. And finally, another set of Speedlines – this time a Techart set for Porsches that just look incredible (and, oddly tasteful for Techart designs). Which is your favorite?

Good condition not cracked or bent as far as I know.
I bought these to put on a vw truck but never found one so never mounted these or put tires on them.

I think the center caps are rarer then the wheels so if you buy the center caps the wheels come with it for free 🙂 same price.

CLICK FOR DETAILS: Ronal Mercedes-Benz R9 16×7, 5×112 on eBay

Price: $850 Buy It Now

Set of Old School Ronal R9’s. These were all made in 1984 in West Germany per stamping on each wheel.

Fitment is 5×112 Mercedes, 16×7 with et 23. All four wheel have the same specs.

I had tires removed and each wheel held air just fine. They appear to have been originally black with the aluminum lips. They have a light coat of silver on the center spoke sections and center caps now. Should be easy to strip the paint off, its not real thick. One wheel has a knick in the lip, see pic 7. Another has a minor flat spot on the backside, still held air fine…see pic 10 ( I didn’t even notice it until I had the tires removed.) Other than those 2 areas the wheel are in pretty good shape for being 30 years old!!

Some of the newer silver paint is chipping in areas. The lips are still aluminum finish just need a good polishing…and maybe a quick sanding on the lips in areas if you want them perfect.

3 of the 4 center caps are plastic and 1 is original metal with the 3 pc clips on the back. All snap in tight.

**Please see all pics and let me know if you have any questions. These were on a w126 chasis.

Ships same day as payment received. Will go fed ex, no po boxes thanks!!

THESE WHEELS WOULD MOST LIKELY NEED TO FIT A WIDE BODY LATER MODEL CAR. THE WIDTH WOULD MAKE THEM UNUSEABLE FOR NARROW BODY CARS IN THE REAR. EARLY MODELS CARS WOULD ALMOST CERTAINLY NEED SPACERS.

CENTER CAPS NOT INCLUDED

  1. Thanks for the shout, Carter!

    For me it’s got to be the drop-dead gorgeous Campagnolos that you lead with. Just beautiful. But remember, if they catch fire DO NOT throw water on them. Just run. Fast. 🙂

  2. I feel like Ronal Bear wheels are being intentionally overlooked week after week in this otherwise excellent recurring column. 😉

    PS – in all seriousness though, I thought last week’s post on winter wheels was fantastic. Once you go winter wheels & tires (smaller, skinner rims are better, BTW!), you never go back…at least I haven’t (fwd, rwd, and awd too).

  3. in one post you just came up with so many of my favorite wheels. with the exception of the campagnolos – not sure how i’ve missed those thusfar. if there were only some of these in 16″, they’d look great on my e30.
