Re: [T3] wheel specs


Hey Cary-

I'm pretty sure.  Awhile ago, I did a little digging to figure out what
offset rims fit on what (namely for T3 and Ghia).  IIRC, my T3 figure came
from the T3 Bentley, which is 68-73.

A good source for original T3 rims (not bug!) would be Ghias, and vice
versa...

Take care,
Shad
