gjm posted a topic in For SaleI have a set of 4 genuine ACS Type 2 rims, 17x8 H2 et38, from an E36 coupe. I was going to fit them to the E46 Touring, but Mrs M isn't keen and I still have the Style 73s which do meet with approval. The inside of one spoke on each rim has AC Schnitzer cast into it; another spoke has Ronal. Tyres are 3 Maxtrek Ingens A1 with 6mm tread (please check 'em for yourself) and one Kumho Ecsta, all in 215/45-ZR17. The Kumho has camber wear on the inner edge but would pass a WoF without issue; again, it has ~6mm tread. Rims are all original and have not been refurbished. They have the original AC Schnitzer film logo on the outside of one spoke - I contacted ACS about this and unfortunately the films are NLA. The rims would have been painted, the logo applied, and clearcoat over the top. You can't feel a lip or bump where the logo is. All 4 rims have some kerbing and would benefit from being dressed. Perhaps this could be done without a full refurb, so the logos could be retained? Full set of 4 AC Schnitzer centre caps, too. I'll post some pics in a bit. I could bring to Kyu's tomorrow if anyone is interested? Price... Hmm. I've seen the Maxtrek Tyres offered at $155 each, so s/h the 4 would be... $250? Rims... Jason had some without kerbing or tyres and was looking at around $600. (Don't know what happened there.) How about $550 for the set of 4, with tyres and centres? Make me an offer.
Any wheel experts out there have an opinion on whether these Type IIs are the real thing? Only markings on the wheels are size (18X8.5JJ), presumably max load (650kg) and offset (ET15). Surprised to not see a country of manufacture anywhere although two of them have partial Gs.. perhaps the beginning of a Germany? Have been recently refurbed at Arrow Wheels, they apparently seemed to think they were genuine as does the owner as he bought them with the understanding they were. At this stage I'm 75% sure they aren't. And while we're on the topic if anyone ever wants to get rid of a genuine set of these I'll pay through the roof!
