Wheel role call!

I just wanted to check how many of you end up with WAY too many wheels hanging around the house?

Right now Porsche I have:
6 - 6x16 ET53 Dish wheels from 924 Turbo
2 - 7x16 ET53 Phone Dials
5 - 7x15 ET53 Phone Dials
5 - 7x16 ET? Dish wheels from a 928
1 - 6x16 ET53 Design 90 from a C2

Misc:
1 - 8x15 old Chevy Mangels AL wheel. Retro cool but worthless
4 - 6x15 ET45 VW Eurovan Stealies
25ish - Chevy stock stealies from various trucks and cars (mostly for farm wagons - long story)
5 - Ford Model A wire mesh wheels - so cool (but useless to me)

Most of these are stored in barns so no clutter in the house kind of deal. But still sick.

I have a few too:

2-15x4 VW steelies/tires
2-15x4.5 VW steelies/tires
2-15x7 Fuch repo's -->sold
2-15x8 Fuch repo's/tires -->sold
4-15x5 Audi(old) BBS's

Depending on season could have either the winter/summer tires/rims for the families cars. So since it's summer the winters are sitting:

4-15x5 Volvo steels/tires
4-16x7 Audi alloys/tires
4-15x5 VW steels/tires
4-14x5 VW steels/tires

Built a small extension on the back of the garage for this stuff.

I have five stock steel wheels with virtually brand new tires on each from my '71 Super prior to conversion.

I have a junk yard 15-inch steel from a Golf IV (5x100) or similar. It has a stock spare tire on it which does not fit into the wheel well of my Super. I currently drive about with a doughnut spare although I may consider going back to a full spare once I have the battery move sorted out.

Keeping those company are two 205/55-16 tires that were taken off my front wheels after the conversion. They were replaced by 195/50-16 tires to avoid fender fouling.

It isn't much but being garage-less, they sure take up an inordinate amount of space in the shed. I wouldn't mind finding someone who could use the stock stuff.

Oasis - what is the story on the 205/55/16s? I need a set for my fronts. Are you headed to the Bug Out in Manassas over Memorial weekend?

I am happy to see I am not the only one with way too many wheels!

The tires are virtually new as I recall. I would sell them quite reasonably as it may be a month of Sundays before I would need them as replacements.

I have always wanted to go to one of the BugOuts but something queer always seems to get in the way. I am planning to go yet again.

If you needed them sooner than that we could rendezvous at some halfway point as we are just 1 hr. 37 min. (87 mi.) from each other ... or I could bring them to the show.
