Scored these at the yard last week. Gonna look nice on my R100.
They're only 13x5.5 but cool little retro wheel. Made by Yokahama Rubber Co.
I've seen some similar wheels made by Almex. Anyone have any other info?

These are 1 of 4 styles of wheels available for the SA22C 78-80 RX7.

They belong to the North American market LIMITED model.

The SPECIAL EDITION model SA22C was confined to the Japanese Domestic Market only.

Cheers for the keyhole info Dave.

There is another "style" wheel for the SA, its just the plain steel wheel found on the Savanna SE GT model.

I have a set of those 79 Limited wheels that are on my 79 Limited parts car. I could be talked into selling them if anyone wants them. I love the keyhole wheel,and would love a set. I actually sold the 5th"spare" Limited wheel with the stock tire still on it to a guy,but I have yet to ship it out yet. He is trying toget a complete set to put on his 79 LE for shows. He doesn't plan to drive with them on,but wants the look of just off the showroom floor for his car. I think the one I sold him makes his collection three.

Anyone want to buy these wheels?
4x110 bolt pattern
Set of 5: the 5th wheel is missing the cap. $125 bucks plus shipping from 91770. I can remove the tires for shipping since they're in bad shape.


Call Rick 626 227-6025 or email me at rikjoy@yahoo.com
