Alpina Steel Wheels 5.5 x 13, Borrani CMR


Recommended Posts

I have to part from my set of 5.5x13" Alpina Steel wheels. I have a new project that needs funds and this set is up for sale.

The wheels were recently inspected for true spin and then they were powder coated. I also have 5 correct center caps that are in need of some straightening but they are the correct ones for the wheels.

These wheels will go greatly with an original or tribute Alpina car.

Step carefully creating reproductions: these center caps are for "Alpina" steelies and they are ever-so-slightly larger in diameter than those for "Borrani" steelies.

An Alpina center cap (chrome-plated steel) is approximately 59 mm. in diameter, not including the flat flange at the cap's base. The center cap most commonly used with Borranis is the "1800 tiSa" cap (stainless steel), approximately 56 mm. in diameter, but having a flared flange at the cap's base. Theoretically, a 58 mm. cap should fit a Borrani's center hub hole but it would have to have a perfectly flat (not tapered) flange so as not to interfere with the seating of the rim on the hub.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
