Can anybody identify these wheels?

As the title asks, can anybody identify these wheels?

Why, You ask? Coz Im gonna buy them to put on my car. Im picking them up fairly cheap with no tyres to put on later, but there are in excellent condition as you can see. I just dont know what type of rim they are.

Can somebody help me?

blueoval,

They look like ROH ZR5 I think in a 17" by probably 8"/8.5" judging from that rim depth. I think they are no longer available but you could ring around some of the larger companies who may have a set hanging around or 2nd hand.

Re: Can anybody identify these wheels?

Yeah either ZR5 or ZR7, they are a nice rim, havnt been made for a few years but.
So they may be hard to find.
They stopped making them in the mid '90s.
Why has that car got a Commodore body kit on it?
Some people have no taste.
well at least its not the total copy body kit, just the Lump on the bonnet.

Re: Can anybody identify these wheels?

yeh i have a set of these wheels and im pretty sure they are the ZR5 by ROH

they look sensational on any of the early E series cars I reckon, just dont loose the caps or ring bit that goes under the cap cos you cant buy them anymore! I had to make up my own when someone stole one from sandown carpark one day!

hehe. dam you, I know I know I chop & change more often than my underwear, but the fact of the matter is Im getting these wheels at a really good price. It was an offer to good to refuse for rims so rare nowadays.

Im not to sure on what width they are but I reckon their at least an 8".

The way Im gonna do this, I will be purchasing the rims this week. Over the next coupla weeks, Im gonna contemplate on what size tyre to have. i.e. 235/45/17 all round or 225/45/17 front & 245/40/17 rear or 255/40/17 rear. I dont know what would look best. In as far as tyre brand is concerned, Im thinking a Hankook/Simex tyre or if Im cashed up a bridgestone.

My intentions with the car will be to keep it for another year or so, just until I pay some debt (3k credit card) and then save over the next 2 years for either a house (depending on house prices) or a BAXR6t. Now , I know the majority of you guys are gonna say 'go the xr6t' but it will all depend on what the housing market is like at the time. If its low, then the house will always be first option, if not well, you know the outcome that will be

I want to save cash over the next coupla years because I want to be completely debt free for a while, and Im not sure on what that feels like. I dont have a house now(living with inlaws), I own my car as is, I dont have kids (thank goodness), and I have a reasonably good job that will allow me to save decent money in a short amount of time comfortably(re: 10-15k per year) without living like a scrooge doing it.

Im not desperate to get a house, I just want to take my time and study what I intend to do carefully.

Do you reckon this is viable?
