Can anyone identify this 17" wheel for me, all I can tell you is it is Ford stud pattern and it is 17x9 and I now own two of them :lol:

I won them on Ebay, f**k I didn't think I would win ($112.50), now I have to go and pick them up, I will pick them up on the way to Wednesday's WSID meet (18/04/2007), but don't flame me, I will be taking the Lantra instead of the Falcon because of suspect head gasket and fuel economy.

They should be AU offset being that they were advertised for Hilux and being new and newer style rim, it would be cool if they were pre AU but I don't like my chances.

Unless I was going mad and fitted a AU diff housing to the EL they won't be going on it (I don't fit adaptors), probably as the ebay listing said, good for a trailer :P

Hey if anyone knows of any rims that look close to that rim, post it too.

Just did a search on those wheels, they are close but they arent the same, :lol: I also found a lot of rims that looked similar, f**k it if I end up with a AU offset car one day all I need is to find some similar cheap rims for the front on ebay :twisted: After seeing heaps of similar rims tonight I don't think many people will notice.

$56.25 a new rim is a bargin, now I just have to do the same again :lol: It would be cool to pick up a set of 17" rims new for $225 (Yeah right!) now to find tyres, trying to find cheap 275/40/17's for these rims.

Actually I want to find some 18s for the front that look similar.

Got the rims last night, went mad and took pictures when I got home, and as Joe knows I didnt leave WSID until after 11.30pm, I live in Singleton and I also made a mistake by not taking the freeway back to Old Northern Rd to go via Putty Rd, so it was early this morning.

This is the design but they only come in yucky chrome and in 17x7, I don't think this company is the original manufacturer but they look identical to me.

They look similar to those AGR/AJR (whatever) Signature wheels that were around a little while ago ... not sure if they are still made though.

Thanks dude, do you mean AJR (Alan Jones Racing)? I will go looking for those wheel pictures.

If anyone else knows of any other designs that look similar please post the info.

I saw something that looked similar yesterday, they were G-force Max.
Had the little holes too, for wheel aligners. And were in painted silver colour too.

Hello There....

Those wheels you pointed out on my site don't just come in chrome because the picture is in chrome...thats a marketing gimmick for the US market who prefer chrome wheels.

Drop me a line through my website and as a small favour I will try to help you out...but no promises

We have catered to car forums and clubs who normally band together to buy our minimum order of 120 wheels but as you seem really desperate I will take a look to see if we have any stock.

Yes you were right we are not the orginal manufacturers but as close as you will get to them...

If I have no stock I can't help I am afraid.

That finish looks like machine or hyper silver with a stainless lip, the picture is hard to tell...

I have two factories with this wheel in this size only
17x7
38/45
100+114.3
5H

nothing in 17x9

Take them to a wheel garage and ask for the fitments

then you can look through our wheel fitment guide for your needs.

http://www.kulchawheels.com/fitment/index.php

something else to bear in mind we do have a copyright so do ask before using our pictures...but as its not commercial we are ok with this one time.

Regards
Spencer
