What Ronals are these?

Post by StuartGT2 » Thu Feb 10, 2011 8:09 pm

Possilby going to buy these at the weekend after I try them on, but what Ronals are they?
Can't seem to find them online. I'm wanting to know the dimensions, offset etc...(there 15s)
They were previously on a 1.6D (B3) Passat

They aren't Ronals. They are VW alloys called Sebrings that were fitted to some Corrados as standard.

Someone has stuck Ronal stickers on them.

The VW/Audi stamp in the centre of the wheel tells you these are a set of OE VW Corrado Sebring alloys, not Ronals... :yup:
I'm 99.9% sure they're 6Jx15, et35... Should have a plastic centre cap that covers the wheel bolts iirc... Worth £80-£120 dependant on tyre condition etc. They look pretty tidy though, good find :buddy:

**EDIT** Ed beat me!! :hugegrin:

Thanks, i'll keep my eye for caps there. I'll phone my local TPS tomorrow to see if new ones are available, got a set for my audi coupe from them and they were pretty reasanobley priced!

Thinking about tyre sizes, what do you reckon would look good on them? I assume 195/50/15s are standard. Fancy somthing with abit more low profile but don't think you get much lower in a 15, but did find some 195/45/15 toyos.

On a bodykitted car the 195/45 - 15's can look a little lost in the rear arches on a 6 x 15 rim - see my A20 GTX project thread when i ran similar size castellets on it.

50 series a better arch filler.

I believe as standard they came with 185/55/15. These tend to be a bit pricey so most opt for 195/50/15 as replacements.

Let me know how you get on with the centre-cap replacements - I'm after some as well.

Cheers

Get the alloys on now :hugegrin: came with pretty decent tyres on them all (three different kinds though :ire: ) so tyres will have to wait right now, my audi needs them more!
Could maybe do with spacers on the rear, maybe just 15mm, is this somthing others have done? they just look to far into the rear arches? (width way)

Yea it was 195/50/15s on it, Camskill are sellling 195/50/15 Toyo T1Rs for £33 each! absolute bargin so thats what I'll be going for.

As for centre caps, I'm a mechanic and lucky that my boss has an account with TPS so phoned up Aberdeen this morning, thier wanting just over £6+VAT each trade, but said the only colour option was chrome, is that right? I wasn't sure so I haven't ordered them yet, said they can get them no bother in any case. Seems like a good price for brand new.

If you're struggling to match the dark grey, give the caps a good scotch and paint them satin black ;)

Satin black does sound nice but I prefer the good old OEM look. Think I'll be best waiting untill I can get the alloys recon'd to get the paint colour correct to match the new centre caps.
