Hello All,

I've decided to go all 14" and so am selling these rare ATS deep dish alloys which have been used by me for the past few years.

I believe they were originally offered as an option on VWs in the early 90s, but that information was gleaned via Google Translate from a German website a couple of years ago. That website where a set in better condition than these, but also still ideally in need of a refurb, was for sale is the only place I've seen them on the internet. That set was priced at €300 without tyres.


ATS Made in Germany, possibly in 1991. 15" 4x100 7Jx15H2 ET25 54.1

I've had them on two mid-90s 1.8 MX-5s now without any need for spacers etc. Because of their offset they do give a good wide stance but were fine on my last MX-5 which was very low.

The wheels are in good condition fundamentally but are 25+ years old and have had minor curbing etc. Also, the flat faces of the deep dish had started to corrode where water had settled on them. Not having the money for a proper refurb I sanded the surfaces down and painted them matt black. It's not the neatest job in the world but looks OK (see photos below) and does give a retro-look that has been complimented! Ideally they'd be refurbished but would do perfectly well for use now and be ideal as a set of winter wheels - if I'd not decided to drop to 14" wheels I'd happily have kept them on. They all come with the original centre caps with bolts and fixing tool.


Uniroyal Rain Sport 3 -  195/50 R15 82V. Varying tread amounts but as you can see there's still a good amount of life in them.


In light of the wheels' rarity and look, the existence of the original caps, and the life left in the tyres, I'd like £130 for the lot.

Limited time/tape/cardboard etc. mean that collection is much preferred to delivery (as organised by the buyer) but that's not to say it's impossible. As it says to the left, I'm in North, North Essex...


Here are a load of photos of the wheels & tyres, including one of them when they were on my current MX-5 so you have an idea what they look like on.

Any questions please ask.
