I recall this too but his wheels were horrific in design.  Also this wheel
will not fit the Urq, the ET is too low I believe at 15.  Lastly its
magnesium, really costly for a tuner to design and use in limited quantity.

With that said there are no markings on the wheel whatsoever.  By none I
mean zero as opposed to not being able to read something.

Very strange.

I have a vague memory that one of the Treser "upgrades" for the urq were the
TRX 390mm rims.  I thought I saw one for sale--perhaps in Germany--with this
rim and tire option.

I bought some wheels earlier this year which with the help of the lists I
have discovered are definitely metric or TRX sized.  They have the Audi 5 x
112 bolt pattern with the rounded bolt seat (not the cone) and have the 5
spoke star pattern that was used on the competition SQ.  Diameter is 390 mm
and offset seems to be about 15 or slightly more than the SQ which is 10 but
much less than the Urq which tends to be in the 30s.

Some have mentioned that Audis were fitted with TRX tires at some point but
I have not seen any printed reference to this. When and which cars?  I had a
non US M5 in the early 80s which had these Michelin exclusive tires but I
never saw them offered on any of My Audis around this period.

Michelin still make the tires which cost the same as SO3s landed in the US
which I suppose is not all that bad as compared with say 60s size Ferrari
GTO tires so I might get these wheels to fit with a 2 mm spacer up front.
But these are not SQ wheels.  They are very light though.
