i've always liked these rims, i think they are period-specific to just after the mid-1990s, and suit boxcars.

anyone know what they are called make/model?

Not too sure Glen, but they look heaps similar to my 17" rims which are made by Antera an Italian mag-wheel company as far as i know.. Check them out below. Btw i'm having trouble fitting these to my BA so they MIGHT be going up for sale if your interested in this style of rim but you'll need hub adapters i assume for an EF-EL..

I think there some sort of EB GT replica rims that didn't end up looking like replicas..... juts like the replica EL GT kit didn't turn out looking like the EL GT kit so they called it the EF GT kit :lol: they still look good imo

Not entirely sure what brand they are but EFII is onto it. They were sold as an EB GT replica rim that look nothing like the EB GT wheels. Well thats what a mate of mine bought them as many years ago.
