  • Calling all wheel/tire guru's found some wheels and tires

    Hey guys, I need some advice I saw some wheels and tires today. First set look like AC schnitzers, are they knock offs? They are 16" I turned them around did not see anything that said schnitzter. The tires are 225/50/16 will these tires rub? The next set look like BBS RX again are these real? No bbs caps. The guy also had a set of unmounted goodyear f1 225/45/17 tires. Would these wheels and tires work? Owner purchased a house and wheels where left in the garage. Sory for the bad pics taken with cell phone. Thanks

    Invest in a camera first!

    ACS wheels were made by Ronal so maybe that's why you didn't see any ASC stamping. I'm not a fan of any chromed wheels on any car.

    I like the BBS R? better.

      I was at a friends house and his neighbor from down the block saw the car and came over to see if I was interested. So it was a spur of the moment for lack of a camera. Do you think these are real?

          on real ACS is always a stamp on the backside of 1 spoke that says: AC Schmitzer made by OZ/Ronal
          there are a few fakes around from different companies
          225/50/16 will cause problems at the front-225/45/16 is the correct size

            OZM3, Markus Thanks for the help. I am going to pick them up. Do you think I can get away with 225 24 17 on stock suspension?

                wheels

                I picked up the wheels and cleaned them up. Here are some better pics for Chicco. Any ideas what these wheels came off of?

                  As Markus has mentioned, did you check the back of the spokes? anything stamped there?

                          Alutec would be my guess for the manufacturer of the ACS appearance wheels:

                          Spray paint and tire shine doesn't equate to a "restoration!"
