    No such thing as Uni-lugs, they either fit 4x100 or 4x114.3 :|

    They are uni-lugs. Look at how the lug hole is stretched out looking. They used to use this set up on muscle-car wheels like slot mags and I thing keystone classics.

    yep. never seen 'em on import rims before. usually import aftermarkets are drilled for a set or two (or three) of lugs. gotta be late '70s or early '80s.

    So you mean to tell me, depending on how you position the wheel.. they will fit 4x100 AND 4x114.3? :|

    Yes, as well as anything in between (4x109, 4x110, etc.).

    So that would basically be the ultimate set of aftermarket wheels, because they would also fit Focuses(4x108.. I think) and some older Mazda RX7s(4x110). Wish I had the cash.

    Too bad it couldn't fit the funky older Subaru/Peugot wide bolt pattern.

    LOL everyone's talking like it's a fantastic act to see rims that someone oblonged the lug holes with a drill. Ghetto way of doing it IMO.

    Odds are they weren't done with a drill. Lots of wheels in the 60s/70s came this way from the factory. Cragar was a really common one...

    yeah, but how safe is it to run these? I'd only run the biggest size or the smallest size just to be sure, anything inbetween might shift and become off-balance? just weird to me.....

    Moved the off-topic posts to a new thread, so don't trash up that guy's for sale thread. :wink:

    There's a reason they quit making them. :P

    But I wouldn't say they are "unsafe".

    I'd have no trouble with them on a "cruiser", but anything I planned to drive fast?
