    ID my wheels? you kids rock!



    the backgrounds are obvious, Mugen cf-48s (my repop resin aero covers do not get daily driven, they live in my garage and only see sunlight on show days)

    the foregrounds are the question. I bought them in 1993 from a guy who was racing a second gen prelude with the entire jackson racing catalog bolted to it (remember those days? when 'Racing' wasn't just part of a company's name). they are made in japan, came with center caps that said CSI on them, are 15x6.5 (IIRC) and obviously the 4x100 pattern. i've never seen or heard of that company or seen another set of wheels like mine (tho the AR-4 and AR-5 are similar).

    another pic:


    anyone point me in a direction? obviously, with the popularity of C.S.I. Vegas/new york/miami/peoria/buffalo/saskatchewan/etc the google tends to overload me with pics of lady heather and that chick that plays callie.

    the CSI logo on the cap was italics, fat blocky letters, not intertwined like carroll shelby currently does. i know CS did some wheels a while, but the made in japan that is cast in between the lug nuts doesn't seem to fit with that company making them.


    one more poorly aimed oversized pic:

    Guessing you're a lot younger than me then. :P

    Back in the late 80s/early 90s those wheels were EVERYWHERE. And just about every company made some variation of it. That being said, finding who made yours might be really tough...

    I do believe OZ Racing made the most popular of the bunch. Don't think the OZ would have been made in Japan, though?

    Do you have a pic of the center caps/logo?

    Does the logo look anything like this?

    zender? i may be trying to get a set of wheels like those soon from a miata guy.

    closest i could think of is Enkei DP for the 1991 Saleen Mustang.

    never mind, i was thinking the american racing DP-5..

    no. i can't find the three caps i had, they are buried somewhere. they were smooth and had a single allen bolt holding them down.

    the logo was fairly small and way over to the right side.
