I've never seen another set of these wheels, nor have I found any definitive markings on them.

But they're on my Spider, and I like them!

Nice car, Joe. I've seen those wheels. I can't tell you the name. They were probably sold in the back of Road & Track at some time.

My wheels

They are 14"x6". I hadn't even considered the possibility they might be off an Audi, but will investigate.

Thanks for the lead!

Not really, just a coincidence as I used to own an Audi with those wheels!

they kinda look like these gotti's to me... gotti were big in the 70's and 80's you see them on Alpines 110, 310, 610 and Renaults R5 turbos a lot. Guys with fiat use them quite often because they have good range of 98mm PCD's. Being 3 piece you can have a made in different offsets and width.. Anyone having hard time finding wheels for there Lancia Scorpion, R5 Turbos should fit nicely with the wider rears. I dont call them staggered like the rice boyz because stagger mean something else to the old school and circle track people.

Sorry for the OT:

The problem with the Gotti R5 rear wheel fitments is that NOBODY makes tires that will fit 15 x 11 (285/40-15) wheels anymore! A friend of mine is currently having fits trying to get new tires for his R5.

Davbert, let me know if you know of any sources...

That's Gotti be the same wheel

As a matter of personal pride, here's a better quality image of my wheel. Thanks for the Gotti tip off; that seems to be what I have.

I'm surprised nobody has posted pictures of Mustang wheels on their 105 car. If I can find an image of the Spider from a few years ago, I'll put them on.

Thanks guys.

My previous two sets of wheels

This is my Spider with the Mustang 15"x7" Turbinas, and Joe Kollmann's Sprint with the wheels that were on the Spider when I got it.

Agiyo,

Front turn signal assemblies on your spider look different. Are they something special, or just leftside-right and vise versa? When I first got my spider, the car had the turn signal assemblies switched (left and right) and upside-down!! It seems that a person who put them on the bumper had no idea what "D" and "S" mean :eek: .

Those Mustang wheels look surprisingly good and somewhat period correct. I would not have guessed they would look that good. Nice job.

I think this side is European. The other side is solid amber, and I've meant to change one or t'other for years. That's the only way they go into the bumper, so I don't see how they could be reversed, but maybe I'm overlooking something.

Live and learn; die and forget it, as my 7th grade science teacher used to say. And Bill, thanks for the good word about the Mustang rims. I sold those, but have another set for the day when I decide what my other set of tires needs to be.

tell them to hold on tight...Through a R5 T owner, yokahoma is gonna make the AVS avalible again. That should help the out all the Lambo Silhouette and Pantera Owners as well... people on ebay better lower there reserves on these fast...

Michelin TB (rally tarmac) have a size that is close that will fit. The group 4 Stratos and 308 gtb Michelotto guys run with these. Not sure if you can buy them in the states.

Hmmm. I currently have a Ford Contour. The stock wheels are 15x6.5" but I can't remember the offset. I also have a "summer/autocross" set of Kosei K-1s in 16x7.5 with 43mm offset. Think they'd fit a Spider?

Also, don't forget Merkur wheels. I share a bolt pattern with them, too, and I've seen stock Contour wheels on Merkurs... They had, I think, three different stock wheel styles in the run, and one that was similar to a phone dial IIRC.

MOMO VEGA's

http://www.alfabb.com/bb/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=1597&stc=1 I have these wheels like SHUEY has on both my Super and my GTV. Sorry no pictures at this time. Mine do not have the black paint.
I would like to find a shop in California that can restore these MOMO Vega's back to original condition as one set has been outside for a long time and the finish is gone. Any ideas who I can contact? These are so hard to find that I really can't just trust "anyone" to restore these wheels

My neighbor has these wheels... does anyone know where I could find them? I know they are 15 x 7 ronals... but ronal is no help on em either...
These are Ronal A1 wheels. They were available in different sizes from 13 to 15. In Swizerland exist 15x8 Ronal A1 wheels in a very small number. They look really nice on Alfettas and GTV's.

Best regards
