Hi, I'm new here. I actually don't own a Japanese car at the moment, but I have two nostalgic ones!
So here is my question. I bought my 1981 Volkswagen Rabbit Convertible last year, and cannot figure out what the wheels are. I have posted threads just like this on no less than 5 car forums, and have gotten no results.
The history: VW's never came with these wheels. I am 152% sure of this
If you're a VW enthusiast you'll get the hidden message! haha
In my search for the ID of these wheels, I have seen them on one other car: a Datsun 510. It showed up in a random slide show my teacher showed the class, and besides being a generally unpleasant guy, he could not tell me any information about the photo- where he got it, URL, etc. So basically the two precious leads I got went cold quickly.
Anyway here are the pix.
My rabbit with the wheels in question.

here is a picture of the insides, with all the markings. I cleaned off the road gunk as best I could.
They are 13" rims, 5.5" wide, and made of alloy. 4x100 bolt pattern. Basically the same specs as the stock steelies, though I'm not sure about the offset.
As you can see, they are not common rims at all. I am just wondering if anyone here has any info at all on them. Thanks for looking!
