Pics of Revolution wheels on car

PostPost by: 74Twincam » Sat Jun 06, 2020 1:44 pm

Hello all-
I’m starting to look at potential wheel choices, and see quite a few pics here of Revolution wheels (such as from Kelvedon currently), but few of them on cars- anyone have them on their car and mind sharing a picture? As a stretch, any pictures of them on a red Sprint...?

Kind Regards!
Bill

I bought these from Pat Thomas ( Kelvedon) back in the late 80's I'd been up there for parts on a few occasions. I'd seen them on my first visit and kept looking at them with increasing want on each visit. I hadn't seen 5 spokes before and really preferred them to the 4 spoke

Pictured are 5×13 4 spoke Revolutions with 175s on a '69 S4. By my rough measure, these wheels have approximately 1/4" more offset then either Panasports or Minilites so they may interfere with the fenders on most cars.
I like the look of Revolutions. Their spokes are very flat which exposes more of the rim to make the wheel look wider. They are very easy to clean. I have 4 sets of wheels and these are my favorites.

Interesting tyres you have on the revolution wheels - can you reveal what make/type they are?

Hi Bill,
I have a set for sale on the For Sale Thread
viewtopic.php?f=33&t=46728
Since I put them on the forum I've had the tyres removed so its now four wheels complete with adaptors.
As they are 6" x13" you will have modify the rear wheel archers a little, I used 165x70x13 tyres.
I'm open to offers
Cheers
Ian

Ian-the tires are Pirelli cn36 175/70s and I like them. I hope they sell well enough that they are still available when I need another set. The speedometer is almost perfect with them which is a bonus.

I have a set of these in silver paint, but they're not on the car and I can't get a picture of them until Friday as I am traveling this week.
