Hi guys

Image

the white wheels in the lower right corner (sorry for the crap picture), they are racing harts of some description but there is no other information on them or on the wheel caps. They are a 4 spoke wheel with a channel inside each spoke on the face of the wheel (ie its not a flat spoke).

Anyone know what they are? I thought I had it written down somewhere but I can't seem to find any info on old racing hart wheels.
They came off a Series II RX-7 and are a 14" wheel. One of the centre caps is missing too if anyone knows where I can get one....?

yeah, they're kinda close to the SSR's but they are definitely Racing Harts (has it moulded on the back and on the centre caps).

hehehe, actually there was a guy on ausrotary years ago that had them on his RX-7. I sort of knew him from a few cruises etc.

I went to a guy that's a bit of an ad hoc mazda wrecker and there was the RX-7 getting broken up for parts. I grabbed the wheels off the RX-7 as a) they are racing harts! and b) they're 14s which are pretty rare to find in a 4x110.

I also got my enkeis off the same wrecker.
