    You Sure, the only pics I see of them on steelies are the museum cars. Any pics of them racing or parked back in the day have some kind of aluminum wheels

    Found these. Are they what you are talking about. I do also recall seeing somewhere else some wheels you could buy of Ralliart japan that were Enkei rims.

    You would think since Mitsubishi used their Nikon brand as a sponsor there would be a real picture or two out in the world of these events. I guess they did not own Kodak at that time so they had no film for their cameras.

    That site is pretty cool. So many pajero running. Most were rocking the stock spoked wheels or some a little wider.

    This is just awesome.
