Hi,
no idea of age of wheels, or info on manufacturer. No markings apart from "Delta" tag. Chrome, with 2x wire inserts one over the other and held together with a centre bolt. Would appreciate some/ any info on these from "back in the day"??? Q.

Look like mid-1980's to me.

Looks like something that would have been on an MG or similar kit car with a VW chassis.

VW are generally 4 stud, or 5 stud with a very wide stud pattern (the rim without a centre); MG are 4 stud wheels, and their wire wheels are the real McCoy; forgot to mention mine are 15" rim, Stude/Ford stud pattern, currently taking a 9"tyre on my Hawk. I have discovered just now that Delta was offered on Aust. GM cars mid -80's here in Oz, so it appears they are Oz manufactured...and not a 60's product as I had thought.

Many of the kit cars using VW chassis used wheel adapters to get the mag or wire wheels that were popular. I still have a partial set, (2) of VW to Ford/Stude pattern adapters.
