Default Can anyone identify this rim manufacturer?

I was searching the interwebs for Miata's with rims and found this picture.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Bonus points for a rim diameter guess also.

I believe they are very old-school Work.

I can identify who makes the wheel but not the rim, is that helpful?

100% that's definitely a vintage CCW model, at least 1k+ per wheel, extra for the rims.

I actually feel a tad offended that someone manufactures a wheel called the "Super Stretch" and that despite the fact that it will fit equally well on Hondas, older Celicas, etc., they have elected to use the image of a Miata in their marketing of it.

Also, very mild LOL at the idea of 8.25 inch being "Extra Wide". See: 949 Racing - 15x10 6UL

But yes, as we all know, God hates homosexuals, child molesters, and people who mount narrow tires on wide wheels.

I'm not leaving that easily. And since I plan on slapping a turbo on this pig, I'll be sticking around for alot more punishment in the near future.

Thanks SmokeSr you got the wheels correct. Unfortunately they suck *** being "0" offset only. If that was the look I was after I'd slap some 13" hammers on that bitch.



P.S. I didn't come from or ever been to miata.net, I came from beanerswithbeemers.org

Those look too deep to be 527. Besides the 8.25", they also have a 9.75" wide rim. I know that they're made in Taiwan and that most of their production gets shipped to the Japanese market, but don't know if they're made of lead or not...
