Riviera Motors VW accessory GT Mag alloy wheels   Price: 400 GBP
Riviera Motors VW accessory GT Mag Type alloy wheels.

In nice original condition with great patina or ideal for refurb.

PCD 4 x 130 VW / Porsche

Casting has the following on the rear of the spokes (Zoom into the pic of the rear and this info can be seen);
"PAT. D-216507"
"MEETS SEMA SPECS 5-1" (Which was in force from 1971)
"PLM" (Pacific Light Metals)
"15x4.5" (although they actually measure up more like 15x5.5s?)

I have researched these wheels and have found some brilliant info on this very website.
I'm sharing the info in this advert but as some of it is from 16 years ago I'm not personally naming the original poster... although, thank you - you know who you are ; )

"VW accessory part # X 601 011, described simply in VW literature as "G.T. Mag Type Wheel".

In the late 60s, Riviera Motors, of Portland OR, was the largest VW parts distributor north of L.A.'s Competition Motors, and General Parts Manager G.F. Hellweg decided he wanted a VW-specific sports wheel for the VW's sold by the 68 Western dealerships he serviced. He turned to Portland's Whitney Industries, for design and consulting. After a few design modifications the wheel was approved for production, the actual casting being done by Pacific Light Metals Foundry from A356-T6 tempered alloy.
As far as I know, no other "mag" wheel was available through any VW dealership. "

Check out the pics.

Worldwide shipping no problem.

Please see my other listings for more VW parts.

I'm selling some of my personal NOS collection, so check back soon for more.
