I have the AVUS generation wheels - someone on this board weighed them when they came out, seem to recall they're slightly lighter than the Speedlines.

When Ruf began making the wheels again after many years, many were "WTF are AVUS" - and preferred the original Speedlines, because they'd heard of them. But AVUS have been around for years (1979) and make wheels for DTM racing and F1, as well as many other racing categories. Avus Racing :: Azienda

Given that Ruf are a manufacturer based in Germany, I don't think they could offer them for sale if they were not TUV tested/approved. Which would mean that these would have passed the toughest testing/approval program in the world.

There's also a 3rd generation of Rufs - apparently the current production run of Ruf Classics are not marked as AVUS.

IMO, pretty much anything with the Ruf name on it is (a) not cheap (b) not junk. Just worth bearing in mind that original Speedlines could possibly have a lot of miles on them now.
