What wheel is this....

Stumbled upon a 914 with these wheels....I found only one picture online and there was not any information defining who made these and what name they may go by. If anyone can shed some light I would be most appreciative. Thanks

yuck...strange name, could I ask if that was the name of the maker or the series/design of the wheel? LOL I also have seen many wheels out there that given a choice, I'd rather eat an onion instead...

I asked the guy who owned the car and his reply was...'were on there when I bought it' now Carbster09, you know you really want these for yourself.....you just trying to talk them down for a better price.....

thanks for the replies....seems to have stymied a few forums...was told of the car for sale locally, center caps missing and would need replaced till other wheels could be located.

I wonder what the bolt pattern is on the wheels in the first post? It is possible to re-drill the 914 hubs for patterns other than 4x130mm...

Jimmy, those seem to be the closest wheel yet to what I have picture. Still confusing on the bolt pattern though as these are 4 x 130 as is stock on the 914 and there is no signs of plugging/welding of the wheel and the ribs within the dish are not present on the ones I pictured. It would seem that the company that made these for the Toyota may have did a slight alteration to the inner dish and marketed these for other cars. Something to consider for sure. I appreciate the reply and the pictures. I am now off to see if that Celica wheel was offered in a smooth dish....many thanks....

well, I am back...while the wheel looks close, the Celica wheel has a raised portion in the center of the hub for bolting on the center cap and are of 14 inch variety not 15 as the 914.....plus...they offered one in a smooth dish but again with the raised portion for the bolt on cap...but as stated....closet to it yet...slowing whittling it down maybe...wish I could have taken one of them and dismounted a tire...possibly the data is on the inner portion of the rim.

the pattern of the wheel I posted is the 4 x 130...many wheels are redrilled for another pattern and if it is also a four lug...then you end up with two application and you can plug the pattern not in use.

I am certain that these wheels were a variant for the super beetle...just wound up on the 914 somewhere in the past.....man was clueless to the maker...

Try asking on the Samba; there are some very knowledgeable Bug folk over there.
