      Enough about the Wall Of Wheels, how ’bout some Off The Wall Wheels?
      Patterns with stripes, anyone?

      Foxy Rabbitruck! Rando pic to show off the wheels, or do you know this example personally?

        I wish I did! It was the most interesting of the 4-lug pepperpot pics.

          Fun fact: If you want to find pictures of these wheels on the Dodges that wore them originally, google for “Swiss cheese wheels”. Of course, you will also then get pictures of actual dairy products.

      Similar to what Mitsubishi used in Australia on the 84 Sigma GSR, 15×6″

    If anyone wants to drop a set on me, I have period correct uses for a set of Watanabes and some APs or Meshes with gold centers.

      I have a set, but you may find that scale is an issue

    mmm Sakuras.

    Is it weird that I want a set of Enkel Paramounts on a VW Harlequin?

    1. Batshitbox Avatar

      I was thinking one of the BMW Art Cars, probably the Jeff Koons.
      (Science nerd in me thinks they probably just look brown when they’re spinning.)

    No Cragar SS, American Racing Torq-Thrust, slot mag, Halibrand, etc.? Incomplete…

      Yeah call me old but those are better than anything in the poster above.

        It’s not a COMPLETE list, of course!

    The simpler the better, so Enkel Baja* or Weds Albino for me, please.
    *”Enkel” is actually Norwegian for “simple”.

    Nothing in my stable has 4 lugs. However, from the photo above … row 2, 2nd from left, BBS style, silver / gold and row 4, 4th from left, BBS style, silver / blue would be my favs. Wheel selection is, however, as much dependant upon the vehicle it is decorating as it is personal preference.

      Yep, similar to what is ready to go on The Wombat… #someday

    I’m seeing a distinct lack of Swedish wheels.

    My current favorite wheels – ‘Daytona Mags’ Elektron (magnesium) alloy – 12.6 lbs each

    1. outback_ute Avatar

      Are these from the same manufacturer that did the original Ferrari Daytona wheels?
      There was a copy wheel here in Australia originally intended for the Falcon GTHO Phase IV (that was cancelled), and later featured on the Falcon Cobra. Not in 15×10″ size though!

      1. Lokki Avatar

        There are two companies that produced these wheels for Alfa – Cromodora and Campagnolo. The Cromodora Daytona is the original wheel – called that because the design was supplied on the Ferrari Daytona and it stuck. The Campagnolo is perhaps best known for it’s alloy racing bicycle components.

        1. outback_ute Avatar

          Thanks – not the wheels (or product) I’d first associate with either company! Cromodoras on Fiat 124s etc were one of the first factory/option alloy wheels around, in a couple of different styles.

    One of the best ways of dealing with the ‘problem’ of only four studs is shown on the second Isuzu Piazza/Impulse wheels. No-one makes an aftermarket wheel that looks quite like them. You have to use the 4 X 100 PCD originals if you like the look.

    Stop-motion Triumph Spitfire engine rebuild. Pretty cool.

      the end is the best. reminds me of my first leftover bucket of bolts…

    I want a 500 just for these wheels…

      That looks pretty similar to C4 Corvette wheels

    I know it’s not smart to take pictures while driving, but coming into work during the fall occasionally is a very calming and beautiful start of the day…without that being related to work at all:
    Going from the fjord to the mountains usually means leaving the fog behind to find the forest dressed in clouds, with the weather behind showing through. I’m inclined to stop and take in the sight every day, but I never do.
