Hey Guys: I've got a set of Carroll Shelby Specials.
small 5 hole bolt pattern. (Fit 86 Volvo Station wagen, Pulled them to go on my beetle!)

These worth anything?

They are not a direct bolt on to my 70 beetle, So they've just been sitting as fitting wheels and tires isn't high on my list of things to do...

Hello,
Are these wheels marked on back inside with SHELBY indication ?
What size / width / bolt pattern ?

Hey - Yes,
Thank you for the response.
They are marked with "CSS" in the back of the rim
All my research shows that they are Carroll Shelby Specials
I see them listed in the Bimmer Forums, but can't find much else info on them.
IF you look, you'll see one Carroll Shelby center cap.
I used to have 3 center caps but unsure where they ended up...

A friend of mine had these on his 89 Shelby Daytona. As far as worth, whatever someone is willing to pay.

Right.
That's the definition of market value, so . . . That makes sense! ha!

I guess I was wondering if someone could expect to sell a set for 200 bucks or if they were rare enough, or desirable enough to warrant more...

Or, maybe someone would chime in that has them on their VW . . .
