    I'm replacing the wheels on my 86 740 turbo in order to relieve some
    bent wheel wobble.

    In my research, I've read that there are some wheels that I can buy
    that just bolt onto the lugs without regard for securing on the hub;
    thus, resulting in a off-balance wheel after a while.

    I'm trying to avoid this, but am not sure what to ask when looking in
    order to determine if a particular wheel is the right kind or the
    wrong kind.

    Then, there is the question about these rings or spacers to make
    wheels fit my car.....are these acceptable, or a poor attempt at a

    Since I'm doing this for function more than looks, I'm skimping on the
    cost a bit. I found some FINN wheels locally with the right bolt
    pattern and in the price range I wanted (low), but can't figure out
    what else I need to know if they'll fit right or not.

    Can anyone fill in the gaps of my knowledge so that I can make the
    best choice?
