So I got these wheels they look like a two piece but they are a 1 piece wheel.

They are Caroll Shelby Wheels but I don't know what model. I've seen a few other people have these wheels to but the closest thing i've come to a name is "Supercars" but you can imagine a google search for Caroll Shelby Supercars doesn't bring up what i'm looking for. :P

Anyways, does anyone know the name of these wheels? Is it Supercars? or something else?

yeah, but those look more like appliance mesh to me or a Caroll Shelby look alike appliance mesh.

I forgot the mustangs had the same pattern.

Anyways the only other place i've seen these wheels is on a VW site.

These are identical to yours aside of color, 5 lug, and knock off. Still don't know what these came on, but maybe this will help the investigation

heres the listing http://www.dragtimes.com/parts/15-Inch- ... 69055.html

yeah same wheels. thats the third different bolt pattern i've seen for this wheel. On the VW thread I saw only three people had the wheels.

Must be fairly hard to come by... I just wish they weren't so god damn heavy. :cry:

I'm really interested to find out just what they came on? Obviously they came on more than one car with the diff bolt patterns, but with the ones I posted having knock-offs makes me think these where a 60s wheel

Hmm, I don't think they are that old.. maybe 70's at the latest likely 80's. I got my set of a 80's 300ZX and based on plastic shelby center caps I'm leaning strong towards 80's.

Thanks, still kind of hard to find info on them but did find a Z thread about them. Supposedly the wheels weigh 25-30 lbs each. :shock:

They feel way too heavy for any car that isn't pushing a V6 or turbo... maybe why I got these wheels of a 300ZX. :lol:
