I don't like flashy rims......

so I got these









I got a really good deal on the rim/tire set, and I kinda like it. The orange clashes nicely with the red primer
Previous owner had painted them, for now I'll leave it, but might paint them white at some point.

Previous rims were 15" with 205 tires, these are 16" with 205F/225R.
They have a better offset, so I hope to regain some steering radius... (haven't checked that yet)

Rob.

I really like those, I have seen someone running a rusty finish with lime green rims, and oddly it works.

Do you know the make of those rims? Do they have a dual bolt pattern? If so, which patterns are they?

According to the PO they are Primax 102 rims. I think they are fairly old. I'll do a more thorough check for markings later today. They are 7x16. dual boltpattern: 4x100 and 5x113(?)

I checked for markings, can't find the Primax name anywhere, but they have 'AL-104' stamped on them. They are made in Taiwan.

These are the ones (unpainted):
