    What’s it worth - 1965 4.5” Lemmerz steel wheel

    I was with a friend today looking at his 1970T and noticed the spare wheel was narrower than expected. Took it out and it has a 5/65 date stamp. 4 1/2 J x 15. I thought it would be good for someone with a 1965 car and wondered what it would be worth.

    Thanks for the info.
    I thought the earlier narrower wheels were worth more than the later 5 1/2” wheels: maybe not!

    I think they are Stephen, but once the chrome has gone like that it turns into a fairly expensive job to restore.

    It depends, does it say 3.7 or 3.9 on it, there is a BIG difference in value.

    Hi Adam

    It’s stamped 3.9

    Can you explain the difference? I’m guessing it’s the offset...

    Thanks

    My first thought was weight! Have heard that a 356 wheel is lighter than the early 911. ..... cliff

    So that would make the 3.7 a lightweight wheel?

    Dont quit your job. Its not an aluminum rim riveted to a steel center like they are hinting at. You would know that wheel as soon as you lift it.
    No Crap
