Revoution Wheels

I would check to see what your tire options are, Not much in the performance section for 13" unless your are looking for race rubber. I'm not sure what the selection is for 14". Both would look nice though, very sharp wheels.....

I had 14x7.5 w/15mm offset on my 78 GTI,ran Toyo T1S tires.

Revolution look great to me but the jerk in AZ.who immports is a difficult guy to deal with,once he has $.Quality of Revolution wheels is mediocre.

Loosing paint in 6mos.??

You can run RA1's or R888's in 13's if you dont expect more than 5-8k or so.....I use them for track work but drive to tracks on them!...on an e 30.

or HTR in 13's like mentioned........

I am planning on Dunlop race tires in 13's..for dry runs every now and then.....

Rev's are a great choice for the 02... period wise...schweet

I think the wheel quality is fine...just the paint is an issue. Many vintage racers run em.

You are right the paint was poor.Also the work to get them balanced was a pain.I always have our local sponsor and competant shop do my tire work Radial Tire,and the revos drove them nuts.The 150h.p. at the wheels GTI ended its life in a T-Bone with a new Dodge Diesel Truck.

.........I lost but it got me back to tii's.

I run 14's but and I bought them from tom- the guy in arizona- who left me hanging dry when one wheel was damaged in shipping. I had to eat the cost and my pride and buy another wheel from him as he would not respond to the post office claims form. But he does not seem to be dealing revolutions any more. I had no problems with the pain on my wheels- they have held up fine for a good while now. The 14" offset (et21 or so) will limit you to a 195/60- th eoffset is not ideal. Tires- here in Japan the only decent(fun) tires in a 13 are r-compounds. In a 14 there are a few more choices. I'd decide which tire you want to run first....

Those are sweet wheels and period correct. I would get the 14 inch just because of the tire choices.

    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
