Epsilon Wheels on S1: sizes?

Recommended Posts

When I purchased my 77 S1 it came with a set of nice Epsilon wheels in great condition. Only the golden centres do not really match to my yellow car.

The problem: I cannot use them (legally) 😞

In Germany the authorities are very strict, no way to legalize them since there are no sizes or offset numbers printed on the wheels and no 'KBA Number' which is mandatory here.

The diameter os obvious (15"), the bolt pattern is given (100x4), but the width and offset are open.

Both can be measured once the tires are off, but maybe somebody has more data available for these wheels? I think they were popular in the US?

And of course if somebody is interested in such fantastic wheels ..... 😉
