What wheels are these from???

When I bought my 1988 c4 Tuned Port Inj/T top. These wheels came on it.

What year did these come on? I don't think they came off the c4?

Looks like the "industry standard" aftermarket BBS wheel from that era. If they are in fact BBS, and are in good to excellent condition, they're worth some bucks to the right person.
Understand everyone from A to Z copied them back then.

Why do they call it "common sense" when, in fact, it has become so uncommon?

That's my opinion, it outta be your's.

BBS is what I was thinking. The Chevy Center Cap had me Wondering though. I posted them up on a Local Honda Forum for $350, with an INCREDIBLE Deal on a Race Clutch and Flywheel. They went Crazy over these! So Crazy I decided not to sale them until I found out what the hell they are

in the 80s that was the wheel style to have. BMW, Porsche all came with them(BBS). Many companies copied the design. Hell even the BUICK GNXs had black wheels designed like this.

IIRC the BMW would have been a different lug pattern. If they are GM wheels then they could possibly be from a mid to late 80s T/A. I remember alot of c4's back in the day with wheels off of Trans Am or firebirds. Buick also used that style on the GNX and some t-type. If actual BBS they will be stamped on the back of the spoke section. Those center caps are not original to theose wheels though.

BMW is 120.00mm (4.724" ) and Chevy is 120.65 mm (4.750")
Close enough to fit
BMW take offs were a popular fitment on C4's way back before the aftermarket caught up

This guy even used BMW rotors on his C4 to run C5 sized rotors with 16" wheels

Honestly they probably came off a Trans Am GTA from the 80s. Still not a bad looking wheel and probably some TA or Camaro guy may want them.
