wheel identification and lock help

Post by Yolandi2 » Wed Jun 20, 2018 12:53 am

hi all,

so my neighbour told me about some "old alloys" he had knocking around in his loft, said I could have them for £50, obviously I snapped them up instantly lol,

amazing condition, never fitted by the look of it ! :D
anyway does anyone know what these are actually called? im having no luck on the net, also does anyone know where I can get a set of locks for the covers? they didn't come with the keys and two of the locks are missing sadly

They look cross between the Rial type A wheels and the bbs RZ.

Are they 15x7?

5x112 is a bit unlucky
