Those wheels look fantastic.. ATEV?? what size do they still make them??
Yeh, I wondered if someone would notice the ATEVs....
They are officially AZEV TypA wheels. The front two are genuine, but have had the centre-bore increased at somepoint to make them fit the GTV - the rears are ATEV, which as far as I can tell are good quality imitations, still made in Germany.
They are quite (very!) hard to come by, espeically in large diameters. They were mainly made in 16" for the German tuner scene (think old Golfs, 3 series etc).
Ive not seen another set on a Spider, espeically in 18" flavour. The guy I bought them off was babbling on about how rare they were, I thought it was sales patter at the time, but he might have been telling the truth.
They are very much 'of their time' - but I think they suit the shape of the Spider and are age appropriate as a 1990s wheel
They split opinion, but I love em. I think they would look really great with a polished rim, but its mega $$$ to get it done.
