So if anyone can add close up front facing pictures of any of the varients, hopefully taken too see the script on the centers, I can really refine this post.

I know from personal experience how hard it was to sort all these variations out, and good picture reference makes all the difference.

Thanx

can we deduce from this that the 9 x 15 are pretty much like a mythical beast?!

9x15's are on many of the Sport Quattros, so yes, mythical.

Can one or more of the many UR owners post some close ups of the 4 and 5 bolt varients of the 8x15 Ronals?

I had assumed the offsets 42 or 45 but I'd love to add close ups of the center hubs with script.

May collection of photos has few of the wheel since I can't really mount them on a car i own........yet.

Internal details 8x15 ET24


Basic flat spoke design


Slight dish


Centre hub a long way back inside (giving the ET24), which is why they can suffer from bent rims on the inner rim.

Don't forget color variations. Many were Zermatt Silver...some a more standard silver (a bit more gray in it than Diamond Silver, though). There were some gold ones (not quite Gobi Beige, I don't think) and of course, white and pearl white.



There is a 6x15" in 4x100 with something of a lip with an offset of 42.

Someone I bought another set from and I are at a stalemate on a deal for a set of these. They would be perfect on the Fox GTI on eBay a few months ago that slipped out of my hands.......

Here's a picture of the wheel:
