Worlds rarest wheels

Post

Back to the top
So for about 1 year I have been trying to find out what wheels I have on my car name/brand etc.

Google images with various searches don’t help. I thought they were Enkie for a while but could not find a match.

So 10 points and kudos to the genius that can identify these.

WHY. Because I want a matching spare.

By the way they are silver normally as I had them powder coated to grey.

Don’t have any pictures of the back but from memory there was nothing on them recognisable.

Remember looking after they were cleaned up and freshly coated but nothing on there

I saw a wheel bolted to a mk1 in Instagram. It was in Eastern Europe somewhere. Messaged them but no response.

It’s a nice new winter game looking at google images of wheels [emoji23]

Still no idea what they are though.

Looked all through my back catalogues and the only wheels which look very close are by RVS.  This is a five bolt picture?

A similar design by them as well,

Thanks rich. A google search brought up something close but not quite there.

Searched for 12 spoke rvs wheels.

Thanks again

I'm cursed with a memory that remembers all the wrong things!

Currently on Gumtree…

Soo have now worked out they are made by Konig. Don’t know if that is a good or bad thing but none the less I now know what they are just need to find out the exact name.

Also hopefully the gumtree guy will come back to me.

I can close this off - sort of.
They are called a konig Elan. I finally know what to look for

Unfortunately gumtree gimp didn’t respond and removed the add grrrr. On the upside the makers logo allowed me to at least ID everything so at least has settled one mystery [emoji851]

Top man really appreciate it. I re found the add now and have put a cheeky low offer in to see if that sparks a conversation.

Would be great to get them well at least 1. Only want a spare. But would buy all 4 to make a set. Not sure how I would get an excuse to go to Scotland though unless someone if coming from there to Stratford next month………….Case of beer for the I convenience is a lot cheaper than me tracking up country.

Anyhow lets see if Micheal responds. Still amazed to have at least found out what they are. Apparently discontinued 15 years ago  that positively modern by my standards.

He messaged me late last night on Gumtree to say they're still available. PT me a contact TN and I'll try to get his. One of you can ring the other, depending on what he prefers.

I've just replied through Gumtree's messenger and given him your contact details, plus offered to pass on his if he wants to supply them.

If there's a reply I'll be in touch.

No acknowledgment from him on Gumtree… unless he's been in direct contact with you I don't hold out much hope that he'll get back to me now.
