Thanks for posting that-do you have a link to the seller's site?
I bought a very rusty Alpine parts car last year just to get this set of 13 inch wheels!
They are only 4 1/2 inches wide but will look good on my Alpine.

Those were popular on the VW's back in the late 70's and early 80's.

I wish they were a little wider but no-they are 4 1/2 inches wide.
Thanks for the link, I have seen a set of them on a TVR Griffith last year. Very nice!

That company is not far from here...
A friend just bought a set of Silverstone II's for his TR250 restoration
I like the 'look' of them in 15" a lot better than the 'new' 15" LAT 70's

I checked and the new style Silverstones have an offset of 24 MM at 6" wide.
