^^ rial 8x16 et11, not shown, but I have 7 original full height caps plus four of the flatter caps shown. First buyer (of either 7x15 et23 above, or these 8x16 et11) gets to chose from either four full height or 3 full height and four of these shown.

^^^ still hoarding these NOS wheels. The black ones fit a gen2 w126 sedan but the silver ones did not, at least with the wheels I tried. The margin is VERY close on this, and for all I know, there might be silver ones that will fit a gen2 w126, and blacks that do not. I would recommend trying these on before purchasing if you are comfortable sanding/grinding down your gen2 w126 brake calipers.

Vintage wheels & hubcaps: BBS, Pentas, Lorinser LO, even a bundt-imageuploadedbyautoguide1408719818.274332.jpg
^^^ gold rs133 I previously mentioned considering modifying with larger lips.

And here are some of the lips I have to work with:

Vintage wheels & hubcaps: BBS, Pentas, Lorinser LO, even a bundt-imageuploadedbyautoguide1408719943.230613.jpg

With all the lips and barrels and all the bundt, I'm working with my wheel shop to see if they can assist me in making some of these:
Vintage wheels & hubcaps: BBS, Pentas, Lorinser LO, even a bundt-imageuploadedbyautoguide1408719994.147998.jpg
^^^ obviously I'm not ready to make those, but trying to see if I can. They would also be "show car wheels" and not recommended for daily driver or highway use. I have heard too many people say that they are not safe.


I think that covers my current stock of wheels. I might have missed some, but can't remember everything.

Nice collection and variety of wheels. It would be a benefit to all if you would include the price for each set. Kinda like looking at a menu in a restaurant that doesn't include prices. Every potential customer has to ask the question: How much is _____? You could eliminate a step and separate the men from the boys. Imagine Amazon not posting any prices.

I change my mind on prices on a whim and don't want to post permanent prices here on the forum that I won't be able to change later. Sorry. I do post wheels I really want to sell on ebay, and will take less when selling through the forum.

Edit: and like that restaurant with no prices on the menu, if you have to ask... Well, let's say I've got very few wheels I would let go for less than $1500 per set. Refinishing these wheels has cost me anywhere between 8+ hours of my own time to $500-$900 to have it done professionally by my wheel shop and de-chroming facility. I've taken wheels that look perfect to my wheel shop only to find hidden flaws and wheels that end up scrap metal after spending hundreds on An individual wheel. I hate when that happens. I collect the wheels and the correct center caps over time. It takes lots and lots of time.

I am a wheel addict as well. Currently have some 17" premerger Aero I's and 17" Lorinsers being stripped prior to going to wheel shop. It does take many hours and $$$. Some are worth investing in and some are "boat anchors"
Your wheels look superb! They deserve a fair price. The green ones don't do much for me.

thank you. The green ones are 5x130 Porsche wheels and the centers have been sold. I bought them for the large 2.5" rear lips. Those are the ones I would like to put on the rear of the rs009s that I believe Aero1 may have purchased from you, splitting each that set, and my rs133 to make two staggered (at least in offset and lip size if not also in width as I plan for my set).
