Obvioulsy, this is a deep question that involves your self image and how you envision your car.  :)

 

Wheels change the look of the car, that’s why everyone frets and dithers and gesticulate about them.  And they say a lot about you as a person.  

 

Some wheels are overtly racy, some are classy, some look like they came off a rally car, some look expensive.  So it really comes down a little bit to how you want your car to come off.  

 

On my ‘72 tii, I think the factory alloys looked the best.  Classy looking, not super sporty, necessarily.  Restrained, but handsome.  They fit the vibe of the car.  

 

I have 5.5” Borrani steel wheels on it now, and those wheels along with the prominent fog lights (with white covers so they really stick out) on the front give it more of a “rally” personality.  Less formal, less stuffy.  An older guy that was looking at it in a parking lot even said that - “it looks like a rally car...”. 

 

So you have to think conceptually about your car.  

 

On to your personality...

 

If you feel like you are a smart person that has to be better than everyone else, then you need to find something period, cool, and obscure as hell.  Like, no one can even find a brochure on what you have.   Then you will feel fulfilled and satisfied. ;)

 

Of course I’m just kidding.  

 

Or am I?

I had these 1980's E21 13x6 BMW sport wheels 4" back spacing laying around so I used them to get car on ground, I put 175/70/13 on them, I have adjustable coil over bilsteins all the way around, ,No drive train in car so it's up a little in front

I once bought an overpriced e30 for its 3 pcs Ronal turbos, true story.

 

I’ve been searching for 15”x7 kleeblatts for years. Only seen them once in UK on a mk1.

 

Here is a teaser for you
