They are very close to the vials. The have a very similar mesh pattern with thr same type of raised face. If I understand right the Enkei wheels of this era were knock offs of other wheels. Mabe mine are a nock off of the Ronal Vials?

Well, it's a first-gen Civic bolt pattern. And that's a first-gen Civic wheel size.

So... For first-gen Civic? :mrgreen:

Enkei rep said they were 20+ yrs old so his books didn't go back that far. That is the 1st gren civic with a 4x120 so they may be 30yrs old? I don't have a clue what they are how old they are or what they're worth

Yeah, most likely early 80s at the newest.

Just a guess at value for the set... $200-$300?

Should be in the ballpark, yes. I wouldn't expect a lot more than that. It's a very specific market that would have a need for these unfortunately.

so the things I know about these wheels. Probably knock offs of the rona vials. Probably made from the late 70s-early 80s based on 4x120 lug pattern Value maybe around $200-$300 for the set. But I still don't know what they are..

Well, that is exactly what they are. Are you looking for the name of the actual model? What you described above is exactly how Enkei intended them to be described.

The 4x120 pattern ended on the civic in the late 70's. If you plan on selling them - head over to 1stgencivic dot org. 4x120s are hard to come by and someone will probably snatch 'em up pretty quick.

Well id like to find the actual name if I can before I sell them. Ill head over to 1stgencivic.org and see what I can get for them. I was also sent to wheelwhores.com but I didn't get anything from them. Japanesenastalgiccar has been very helpful. Thanks guys.

Why? It's probably not going to bother the person who buys them that you don't know the model name. :P
