The Enkei EK83s 13x5.5 they still have the inspector stickers on them from Enkei.
They need to be cleaned up some....

Ya got a KICKASS deal on them, but they need some cleanin, im just going too polish up the lips and the center, but going to leave the white how it is, since they are all original and havent been repainted .

wheels aren't my cup of tea. i'd avoid the whole dipping them in copper as they will get stolen and can be found at your local scrap yard  ;)

^^ True, but to be completel y honest the paint isnt that bad on them, i was cleaning/waxing them lastnight and they dont look that bad, im surprised, because of how old they are...... .but what does everyone think about a 175/50 tire on them?

One of my VW buddies bought a mkII rabbit and they came with it.....an nd then I picked them up.....bu t you can't get them anymore.. ..they got discontin ued back in the 80's.....I got lucky.... .and Im not sure if there is any remanufac ture knock-offs of them..... I can't find alot of informati on on them..... it took me like 2 weeks before I even found out that they were EK83's, and I haven't seen that many sets of them around, but there is a dude on here that has a set also, but his as 14s.
