All one needs to know about the 'fabled' Bundt or Baroque wheels since their introduction. Even the 15" versions are covered in full in this feature. I had often wondered about specific details, especially of the 15" variety, and they are covered in some specific and well informed detail. Regards Styria

I am either getting old or am starting to sound like politicians - I have started to repeat myself. My apologies.

Great find but not an exhausted source of info. Could the availability of new 15" wheels spell the end of 14" tyres?

A fascinating article Styria,
I always thought that wheels were all the same. Their sole purpose being to stop the car from scraping along the ground, particularly the rear wheels on a FWD Car.

Mark, if you have a better link - by all means, please post it on TK. It's quite a fascinating subject. Incidentally, I may have a set available at sometime in the near future. They will be FOR SALE. Regards Styria

Nah no better link but the article does leave some questions unanswered. As I figured, they are equivalent to Porsche wheels of the era. They are extremely light weight compared to later wheels.

So if Fuchs still make 15" Bundts then I wonder if Ronal can make new Pentas or Centras??

I have seen them on a couple of local (Sydney) Combis, but never on a Porsche. The way I see it, Bundts are very unique in design and there is no other wheel EVER that's even come close to looking like one. A Bundt is a Bundt is a Bundt ! Boom Boom :) Regards Styria

N.B. Does anyone need 15" ers ?
