    ATS.
    Fairly common wheels in Germany.
    They come in various diameters (13", 15"), widths and offsets.

    Don't know why you posted this three times.

    While they do look like the ATS wheel, I think they are actually Cromodora CD32 5.5x13, as found on BMW and Alfa around 1973

    Sorry this was posted three times. The first two resulted in a database error message and it told me to try again. Little did I know it really did post.

    @SiliconTi, you can find several on ebay - (germany), if you are willing to pay for shipping.

    Well I see my link has disappeared already! Here is another one. Clearly, ATS and Cromodora made very similar wheels. Cromodora, of course, made wheels for most Ferrari models years ago.

    And another...

    Here is a picture of the ATS Classic. It appears the major difference lies with the location of the valve stem, which on the picture, passenger-front wheel, is located where the Cromodora shows it.

    Thanks to the moderator that merged these!

    Thanks to all that replied.

    I really like these, and want them for my GT, but, wow, they are pricey.

    If you like pricey you could try to source the Fuchs wheels made for the Opel Kadett GT/E (they will fit). If I at some point should ditch my original steel rims with chrome center and ring this will be the once I'm after.

    The ATS are nice as well, and it must be possible to find some in US.

    Cheers.

    The big difference is the edge rib on each spoke. On the ATS wheel it is narrower and taller than the rib on the Cromodora. Also, the ATS can be deeper (rim to face) than most Cromodoras with more variety in width and backspace.

    Hi SiliconTi- Those are ATS "Star" Classic Wheels, most often available in 13x5.5", 13x6.0" 13x7.0" and (very very rare) 13x8".... Very light and strong, Very classic 70's German Wheel for Opel, BMW, and even Audi Fox... I have a set of them I haven't used in years. Would like to sell them for not-large money... PM me if interested? Ernie Bello 561-371-9246 cell
