I got this set of wheels from a local guy. He got them from some one who put them on a Z. They seem to have a fairly 510 friendly offset and use the common toyota/datsun bolt pattern. Its a 14in. wheel.

I believe the only markings say made in england. No names or any other markings indicating manufacturer. I don't believe the center caps to be original for the wheels but they might..

Any ideas?

Interesting. I notice that one has "100+" on it. I'll have to check my wheels to see if it has that marking as well. Might have written that off as some nonsense rather than a wheel manufacturer.

I'll check and post my findings.

I checked the wheel and it did have 100+ on it.

So it would appear the mystery has been solved.

yeah, pretty similar. I think everyone was copying everyone back then. :P

The center where the lug nuts sit looks slightly more shallow than mine.
