back in the day there weren't as many. over the years other manufacturers made more 4X100 wheels with the correct offset or others offsets that could be used with spacers.

period specific wheels are a challenge. BMW has factory alloys of several types that were on option on tii's at least that can still be ordered new from mobile traditions. Minilites are another choice that can be found that are period specific.

Classic wheels indeed!

Much more popular on Datsun 510s, tho.

Here's Aarvarc's List:

Here are some factory optioned Mahle alloy wheels (13X5.5, I think). They looked great. I sold mine for $125/each plus a set of E30 bottlecaps.

(much rarer than 13x5.5), Cromodoras cast in "electron" magnesium alloy in 13x6 (rare), 13 inch Alpinas (especially 13x6s), and Campagnolo magnesium in 13x5.5 / 13x6.

Ronal "Turbos" in 15x7 (in production until a year or two ago), E21 Alpina & OZ Alpina replica 15x6 & 15x7 "turbines" (although the E21 wheels really have too much positive offset for '02s).

BBS RA and RS wheels originally intended for the VW Rabbit/Golf/Jetta series in both 15x6 & 15x7 with several offset variations.

Used to be quite a few dished "slot mag" style 13" aluminum wheels in 4.5, 5 & 5.5 inch widths from several different manufacturers, but they're not common any more.

Then there's the wheels from other BMW series - 13" "turbines" from the E21 series, E30 14x6 "bottlecaps" and 14x6.5 325iS BBSs; E30 14x6 steel wheels.

i think these A.R.E. wheels were called "Le Mans", very similar to "Libre" style but more tapered spokes. I always used to see datsuns (510's, roadsters, Z's) with these 2 kinds! MGB's too...somewhat common to find in 13" but harder to find in 14" and especially 15"

Those slotted mags were really popular on all cars in the early '70s...even these 13" x6", 4x100s on this "Awful GT."

    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
