"R" stamped on rim

Post by conqurboy » Sun May 19, 2019 6:00 am

I was just curious why I see the letter "R" stamped on some rims and other not, on the 1995 850 T-5R.

Pegasus rims have an stamped R (there's a lot of replicas of these wheels, some may not have the R)

While Titans, which were only offered in 95, don't have the R

Pretty similar rims, but the Pegs are stronger. I still like my Titans tho :D

So. The rims with the stamped “R” are not OEM.

The Pegasus are factory rims for most 96+ R models. But no, not for the 95 T-5R.

So someone did a switch-a-ru. Any chance the 1995 models made in December receive these rims?

Did they still made 95 models in December ? My 98 was built in November 97
You can check the year model by looking at the 10th caracter on the VIN

As far as i know the "cross-over" was before and after June for P80...at least for EU models.
That said....models which were produced before June in '96-were '96....and models after June in '96-were '97.
VIN will point out real production year but both cars (before and after June in '96)will have "Made in Sweden '96" markings on every glass.

Mine is '97 according to VIN...have M4.4 from the factory,Persus 16" wheels...but on ALL windows,there is Made in Sweden '96 mark.

last question on this topic. is there a way, after so many years, i can obtain a build sheet, or window sticker, and any informative way to discern what were the options on my vehicle (YV1LS5810S2232178)? Thank you guys.
