    Identify this wheel

    Found this ad on craigslist Orlando. Super cheap, sweet looking rims in 4x114.3 (if there really off of a 280zx). Problem is, I live in Cocoa Beach and can't justify driving 60 miles to pick up a set of $15 rims, but I'm still curious as too who makes them and how much they could be worth.

    http://orlando.craigslist.org/pts/1113455568.html

    The guy says they're "factory upgrades" for the 280zx, but they don't look like anything I've seen on stock 280zx's or 280z's. I'm thinking there oldschool aftermarket. Looks like they were originally gold.

    Those look like audi 4000 wheels from the same time period as the 280zx.

    Am I too late for this topic? hehe :wink:


    If it they have these markings:


    And exactly looks like these:



    Then they're Licenza Italys (?).. made in the Philippines by Philippine Aluminum Wheels Inc.(PAWI) in the late 80's. PAWI btw, is the predecessor to Rota Italia and later, ROTA Wheels brand. :wink:

    Man I wish I had gotten these....
    They do look similar to those Licenza's, but the spokes on the gold ones go all the way up the lip of the wheel.

    BTW, I saw these back on Orl. craigslist a few months ago. Someone had cleaned them up a bit and was asking something like $300 for them. :shock:
    They didn't mention a brand name either.
