They look like Appliance wheels to me? Owned 3 sets just like that and all were Appliance.

Of course almost all of the Appliance wheels seem to be replicas of something else, so... :P

Hmm. Idk.

Someone on another forum has had a set like these and said they where 14x6 0-offset

Someone else said they where from 1978 and came on some Z cars.

Idk. maybe someone will know the name of them.

FWIW, the Appliances came in the usual '70s sizes, 13x5.5, 13x7, and 14x5.5. They came in several offsets and bolt patterns, as well as some "unilug" versions.

If he meant "came from the factory on a Z", no chance of that. All USDM S30's came with steel wheels and hubcaps off the boat from Yokohama. It wasn't uncommon for dealers to swap on different wheels though. :tu:

I stand by my "Appliance" comment. :P

So here's where someone comes in to prove me wrong... :lol:

Do you physically have the wheels? Why not just take one off and check the casting for any stamps or manufacturers markings. Even if you can find a manufacturer it would make the process of finding the model a fraction easier. If they have no stampings, chances are they're knock-offs of something else.

Well, mine are identical in look to yours and mine are stamped Appliance on the rear, so...

I'd say based on the fact that no one here seems to be familiar with them, I'd guess they aren't "knockoffs", but an original Appliance design?

Most (if not all) the Appliance wheels were made in USA, which is a bad thing around here... :P
