    Those are imitation wire wheels that were very popular in the 70s. There's supposed to be a tall center cap and a wire wheel "basketweave" piece that fits over it, so from a distance they look like real wire wheels.

    They do look kinda cool without the wire baskets though... :P

    If the chrome is in good shape and you like the offset/width, I'd say $120 is a fair price. :tu:

    Hard to say, but I'm very confident they were all either 14x7 or 14x5.5. From the looks of those, I'd guess 14x7. Offset should be zero, or just slightly positive (+10~).
