The rims pattern looks similar to me to fiesta, sierra, escort steelies with the little holes around the outer, although the size makes no sense...
5.5x15...
15 is escort rs turbo alloys yet other model escorts of similar age recieved 13's steels didnt they?
Sierra steels were 13's werent they an alloys 14's?
And again fiesta were 13's...
Thought only the new stuff had 15's steels... Mondeo and such like...
Then now there on 16's aint they...
Or am i just babbling...

:-P

Them wheels are for winter tyres only.

You could get them for the Sierra & Escort Cosworth.

Think the tyres where 195 55 15. M + S or spiked.

Why anyone would buy them in the U.K, I don't know??????

Been watching these for a while, thought the price was more than a little optimistic myself or am I missing something

Sounds viable...
Although personally if i had a Sierra or escort cosworth i dont think i'd wanna be using it in bad weather, after all if ya got enough cash for one might aswell get a good one and keep it good and have a second car for winter playtime...

Good knowledge though dude :-)

I think it has stamped on the rims some where that they are only for winter or snow tyres.

That is what they was designed for trust me  

Should sell in somewhere like Norway
