Hi Keshav, servus ! The pic with the Clarion Tower is a bit older, now I have a Blaupunkt Frankfurt, as you see on the picture above. More period correct, with a port on the DIN socket for my mobilephone so I can play my favorite music

Well, I think I’ve finally joined the club as they say. I love my CSi wheel but with the help of a member here I now have a 40cm Petri. I had it recovered with new leather, grip is nice and tight and I think we did a decent job of matching the stitching. Just need to install it in the coupe.

Resistance is futile! Looks great

It has a lot of characteristics of a BWA wheel but I don't recognize it. I would assert that it is worth nothing, due to the style, small diameter, grip size, and due to it being unrecognizable.

Not sure if it is actually thick(er) than a stock wheel - or if it appears thick because the wheel is so darn tiny, the grip appears thicker relative to the diameter. I'd be surprised if it is greater than 10" (25cm). Good luck!!!
The easiest way to tell would be be to ask for pics of any marking on the front or back of course, but even a decent picture of the hub bolt pattern would be a good clue. It reminds me of a Personal wheel - even the horn button shape looks like a Personal hb, but the bolt pattern is different. My guess for the size would be 320mm, for a 250mm you would need some Popeye arms for in a coupe

It also has a single hole in each spoke...

@ablank135 ,

Your car is lovely! My brother sent me pictures of it from an IL car show last year. You should snap a closeup of the radio and post in the 'show your radios' thread! Then do the same for the motor! :D

I sent it to Hans Wortelboer in the Netherlands. He sourced a missing horn button and had, I believe, a German craftsman re-wrap it. It was pretty rough when I bought it back in May from a friend in Oklahoma.
