i think those special wheels were made to clear the UFO brakes.
i bought a set in 1990 for $110 each. ouch! (that was way before
the other good thing about them is the generous width. they come
in 7 X 15. i bought a 6 X 15 steel wheel for my full sized spare
and it cost less than half of those mothers. the 6 X 15 wheel will
not fit the UFO brakes cars.
they are also quite light for such a big wheel. i had junkyard
100LS wheels for my 4KCSQ and they weighed more than these.
I purchased a set of steel wheels with mounted snows for my '91 200tq
with the UFO brakes. Tires are P210's 185/65, and I believe that the
rim size is 6 X 15. No problems clearing the UFO brakes, and the car
handles great in the snow. When I called Tire Rack, they asked me
whether I had the internal caliper brakes or not, so there must be a
difference in the wheels they sell. Wheels were $60/each.
