I found these whilst surfing german ebay, not ever seen or heard of 9 spokes here in the uk, was just wondering how common they are over in europe as i think these would look good on my xr.

They are Borbet rims, not original Ford items.

These wheels have the width/diametre cast into the spoke.

Ford didnt have this.

Unless someone can correct me...............

Yeah Mr Jurgen is right  

What is fooling you is the centre caps are not right. It has Ford ones fitted.

They are the most common alloy Turbo Technics fitted.

Centre caps are the same as alot of Ford alloys.

I have a set of them

I'd love a set of those but don't think my brakes would fit under them?
Getting them here would be an issue as well

that would be whats throwing my mind, still they look nice, but would still look relatively stock, ideally i'd like a set of S1 rs turbo or RS1600i alloys for the xr so i can upgrade the brakes and get a lower profiile tyre on it as well. Says the offset on them is 25, would that cause any issues on my standard xr4x4?

Would most probably stick out past the front arches

Yeah more than likely, would rather have the rs1600i or S1 turbo wheels really, as it'd provide the stock look on the xr and allow me to fuckabout with upgrading the brake sizes

35-45 is the offset range for a Sierra. I've got a feeling someone is going to correct me on this  I'm sure I've seen a website stating that.

well the offset on the xr's wheels are ET41 i think, and i have ET38's on the saff, i would put the 17" RS7's on the xr4x4 but i have other plans for my spare set of softlines although they've been destined to go back on there original home for many years now so time will tell

Well the bigger the alloy the more important the ET measurement becomes.

You can get away with a fair bit.

Minker uses ET25 as STD but the front disks are mounted inside on the hub so it has less track as STD at the front.

I have not measured it but the front & back look about the same track now.

They are the exact same wheels as the first post.
