For a company with such a reputation for making epic wheels, I'm not sure what happened in the board room on this particular day... Ronal Teddy Bear Alloy Wheels - "real eye catching classic alloy wheel design from Ronal wheels of Germany. The one and only alloy wheel on the market with the Teddy Bear design."

Bit small for my Zed though at 14x5.5"

Plenty of scope for modding though...

Shame they're not available in 17's. They'd be quite a talking point

They have been available for many years. I remember back in the youth (mid 90's) when I nearly bought a brand new Corsa GSi they were on the options list and yes I had the same thoughts of "would you really, honestly ?!! :eek:".

I will have you know I saw sense before making that mistake and never completed the deal plus the salesman at the vauxhall dealer was a crook who never even orderred the car despite me putting a deposit down. Fireworks went off that day I tell you.:mad:

Ronal make a lot of BMW wheels and also the Schnitzer ones. I think these are Type 7 Racing ones. They are just about bearable though......

A. A Milne is a British author who lived and died I the UK. The bear was named after a Canadian black bear used as a military mascot, the bear was called Winnie, the original stuffed toy that the stories are based on was called Edward, and the illustration is based on the artists sons' stuffed toy called Growler, Pooh was the name of a swan. Winnie the bear was donated to London Zoo, but I can not confirm its origins may have come from Winnipeg, May have come from another zoo.Perhaps you can clarify this part, as it is interesting that Winnipeg claims to be the origin of Winnie the Pooh?

Rumour has it that Walt Disney's roots could be traced back to Norton Disney not far from me?;)

Yup! The bear came from here. There's a beautiful display area at our zoo dedicated to the part he's played in the world of not just kids but adults. Will try to get some pics if summer ever shows up and I'm not busy that day. JIM

Funny, but quite an engineering to balance these rims without a geometric pattern!?:)
