    Found this on early 80's civic wagon at local yard

    Are these even honda wheels? Picked them up regardless because they look cool, but I've never seen them before today.




    Got three of the center caps and the key and screws for them. but I think I'll just leave them off for now unless I can go back and manage to find the forth one.

    I believe those are from a third-gen (RA-sixtywhatever) Celica. A member here by the name of ill-minded has a set on his if I remember correctly.

    doesn't that generation run 4x114.3 though? These are 4x100

    I found ill-minded's post, his look more rounded and they have a significantly larger lip. The center caps say taiwan, could these be a remake of the celica design?

    Here's Ill-Minded's car for reference.

    The ones that I have were made by an Australian company called "Performance Wheels" but have long since been discontinued.

    The ones that you have look to be a European equivalent (probably what the ones I have were copied from) called "Centra". I have no idea if that's the brand or just the model of wheel, but that's all I've known about them. Here's a picture I yanked from the interwebs.



    And here's the Google image search, with some more pictures. Link

    Of all the strange wheels to find on a old civic wagon in the yard... European ones. I found some vwvortex for sale threads about centras and it looks like their's didn't have any significant brandings/markings on them either.

    They look pretty slick. I actually like 'em without the center caps. The design is simple and understated enough to be a factory wheel, which is nice.

    Took a bit of inspiration from my own wheels and knocked this up in SolidWorks. It's not a finished model yet, but I think it gives a fairly solid representation of how they'd look.

    Click me because the forum does not like displaying large images
