What wheels ARE these?

I've never seen these before. Supposedly for a 944 late-offset. Very good looking wheels!

No affiliation with the seller etc.

Porsche 944 & Turbo, 17" Wheels 9.5x 17 Set of 2 for Late offset Cars | eBay

Never seen them.
They look like truck wheels?
There's only two of them.
Shipping is way high.
.............and they're ugly as hell for a car.

Ha ha! I actually like them, though I think they'd look better on a car other than a Porsche. And they don't look very light with those thick spokes. I do like them though.

I wonder what they would look like on a 944. They kind of look like 924 wheels.(kind of) Maybe replicas that have one less spoke.

Hmm... I'm looking for a set of 17" late offsets to clear my big blacks and they're cool because they're 9.5" width, but they are ugly as sin. If I have time maybe I'll try photochopping them onto a 944 but even without doing so I bet they look awful.

I'm still holding out for a set of Cup-IIs I guess.

+1 on the truck wheels. They'd look good on a lowered Chivvy S-10...

just found a similar aftermarket 15" wheel being sold by a retail chain here in New Zealand. should suit early offset cars.

15"x7"
5x130 stud pattern
24 offset

Those are ROH wheels from Australia. Used to be very common in the early 90s.

Don't think they are ROH,pretty sure 100% they are Motoform Sekta's (made in Italy?) ,I'am after a set for my VW Golf in 15inch 4 X 100.
They were common in the 90s as stated and were fitted on GM Commodores (Australia),Audi's and Nissans from memory,I love the style,if the offsets near enough they would be great on a 944 IMO.

I believe they are ROH wheels. Check your Excellence back issues.

Whatever the are, they look like imitation Minilites, which were originally aftermarket magnesium wheels for competition Minis in the 60's and 70's.The size range grew thereafter and they are still made today, and they have spawned various imitators in aluminium alloys.
