Does anyone recognise these wheels?

    A colleague said her classic car mad dad is clearing his garage and had these wheels.

    I am told they are for a Z and in pretty good nick. Anyone know what they are? Do we think they would suit a Z?

    14 x 6j 12mm offset (not sure + or -)

    The markings don't give anything away.

    Those are definitely positive offset given the design. So in 14x6 with +12 they will look pretty small - all tucked in.

    Ah! Thanks Richie.

    Well, I've asked if her father has a price in mind but if anyone is interested, let me know.

    Looks familiar. They're 100+ Octavo.

    Super! Thank you Jon! They actually look good IMHO.

    I wasn’t convinced, but agree with Ali, they do actually suit quite nicely as a period-looking alternative. I’m always a bit suspicious of positive offsets, given the cars were designed around zero offset wheels or negatives for deep dish, racing etc. More modern, larger wheels with positive offsets can look awful and totally out of place.

    The wheels would work much better on something like a Datsun 120Y or later model bluebird.

    They would sit too much inboard on a s30 for my liking - reminding me of wheel fitment on a E type :rolleyes:
