Looks good!
Any idea what the wheels are off? Are they Ford on 4x 4-1/4" stud pattern by any chance?


Don't know, sorry. As you can see they're Fords. Tyre size 175 70r13.

Been quoted just under $100 each for 'cheapies'. About $120 each for name brand. From Bob Jane.

Yeah, I thought I could see Ford logos. Check the distance between opposite wheel studs; they may be off a Ford Cortina or Ford Escort (4x 4-1/4" centre to centre) or an early Ford Laser (4x 4-1/2", 114.3mm, centre to centre).

If they're 4x 4-1/4" (107.95mm), there really aren't any other sources for wheels with the same stud pattern. Early 1970s Mazdas used 4x 110mm; they'll fit over the studs and look *almost* right, then break off the studs and go bush a few hundred or maybe thousand miles later when you least expect it. BTDT...

If they're 4x 4-1/2", then they are as common as muck, this pattern was used on many many Japanese cars; less so today but you won't have any trouble finding matching wheels. Thinking about it, I *think* I recognise them from an early Laser, which is good.
