Thanks, A83. Yours is a beauty. Congrats on that. The 2 sets of rims do look damn near identical. Surprising. I am only the 2nd owner, and have had the car since 3k miles. Perhaps, were the Ultras an option on the car in '84? Seems strange that the original owner (who has now passed) would have put new rims on a brand new car. What rims were OEM on the '84s? Do you happen to know? Tks, B.
Hi forum, I have an '84 (RQB-4049). Looks great. I'm looking to take it to the next level, but keep it original as poss. Can you help me identify the original rims below? Are they still available? Is there something out there that's close? And my preference: How hard/expensive is it to refinish these (they are in good shape, but the clear coat is coming off)? And I'm thinking of going with redline tires to harken back to its 1960s origin, but keep it to 205/75/15s. I see Coker/BFG Silvertown...and the Auburn/Diamond Back. Is there anything else? Which is the preferred brand? Pros/Cons? Much appreciated. Bob.
