I may have just missed it on the web page - but where does it mention steel? I assumed the reference to 'Italcerchio S.R.L.' was just a new supplier.

From their web site: "We are currently the main European steel rim producer for aftermarket and restoration. Furthermore we are one of the major European aluminium rim manufacturers."

Oh, aluminum again? I know them for their good still rims.

Kaliram, if your 2019 already came with their rims...I don't know why is it a news from IMZ regarding 2020. Very intriguing.

What is the date stamp on your wheels? My custom ordered 2019 GU arrived last month with a date stamp of 10/18 on the wheels.

22/19, which I can only guess means week 22 of 2019...

Week 22 would be around the middle of May. When did they make your 2019?

I've been checking out the Heindl walk around videos for the 2019 GU's on Youtube. I've found date stamps of 08/18 and 10/18 from the most current videos of the 2019's.

I'm guessing it could be news, if the CT's will now have the same size 19" wheel going forward.
