Hi alls,

 

I think I have earlier Alpina Steel Wheels : nothing in the center, but in the wheel : 13 X 5 J CMR 10 67.

 

Pics to come.

You sure do. Now THAT'S what we're looking for! For my database, are all four rims dated 10/67? The photo of the (orange) tire race shows "CMR" clearly but the number data is unclear. When examined closely in person, are the dates unambiguous (I just want to know that they're 10/67 rather than, for instance, 10/69)?

Great set, complete with original center caps!

 

Thanks for posting.

 

Best,

 

Steve

If memory serves, Ti came with 5.5 x 13

 

These rims, of course, are Alpina (CMR) steelies, not factory steelies. I don't believe the proximity of the photographed rims to the ti air filter housing was intended to imply these October '67 rims were original to a ti.

 

Parenthetically, the ti, like the tii after it, came from BMW with 5x13's (all cars other than the 2002ti and tii certainly came with 4.5x13's prior to the August '73 switch to styled steel rims, which put all U.S. models on the "5x13 standard"). The first '02 offered by the factory with 5.5x13 steel rims -- and, I suppose, also the last -- was the factory turbo.

 

Regards,

yes, four have the same (not in good condition in 4 !) but 13 X 5 J CMR 10 67

 

Thanks, Alex. II just wanted to confirm before I put them I my database.

 

Regards,

I have updated my 25 June 2012 and 10 July 2012 posts (numbers 1 and 38, respectively, of this thread) to reflect this latest data! A pdf file replaces the old photograph of my summary sheet.
