Title: Turbo rim size
Post by: Turboman55 on December 31, 2020, 06:53:31 AM
Hello Iím new here on this forum and i am a norwegian guy with a 1980 T/A Indy Pace Car that i have restored by myself, and i have a question,
Does anyone know if the 15"/9" turbo rims is made in bigger sizes, similar to the snowflake-rims, or if someone/ somebody planning to do these rims in 17" or 18"

OER plan to release the original style 15x8 Turbo rim soon. They have also released the larger diameters in the past so perhaps on their list. The factory rims were either 7" or 8". Note that simply by looking at a photo which may not even be a sample, it appears to have original lugnut style, no acorn rubbish!

Yes i know there has been made reproduction of the original 15x7 in white colour because i had a set earlier, (used them when i refurbished my original 15x8) lets hope someone take the challenge to reproduce this turbo rims in size 17x9 or 18x9, iíl be in first line to buy a set.

I like the turbo rims also, but they are not available in the size I want, so I ended up getting the 17" Torq Thrust II from 4wheelonline. They look great. imho
