I haven't checked the parts number on my factory rims ( or what came with
the car. It was used. ) But I did notice that 2 of them were made in West
Germany and 2 from Canada. They are the regular 5000 rims. The solid ones
with oval holes at the edge. They are lighter than the 15" BBS basketweave
aftermarkets though.
