Default Syms wheels. What are they?

I picked these up on a trip overseas awhile back, never put them on my car. Considering getting rid of them to pick up a 80s/90s loyale wagon. I have looked high and low as to what model they are and cant find much if anything at all. Any ideas? I know they are 17" x 8" 5x100.

I'm not sure what model they are but I'd be interested in them. Let me know if you come up with a price.

Certainly. I am pretty sure there aren't any sets of these in the US, and if there are, I havn't seen them.

I'm leaning towards it, I just am not sure what they are or what they are worth. Found a couple wagons im interested in, so it is a possibility.

They are getting powder coated white as we speak. I would consider I guess if the price is right.

I can deal with white for now if they're clean. What's your price? I'm coming up this Sunday for another meet. Give me a price, I'm still interested.

Default Hi mark.

It never did. He says he wants to get a new set of wheels and I was trying to motivate him . You built the best car Ive ever driven. The gc would look good with these wheels.

They should be out of the powdercoat shop today. I ill break out the slr and get some good pics. I've pretty much decided against putting them on my 2012 wrx as I think they would look weird.

Edit: just called the powdercoater, and they are getting blasted right now. Will be ready for pickup Monday so ill post pics then.

Edit edit: wheels are done just can't pick up till Monday cause they are closed sat.

Just came back from the powder coaters and they turned out phenomenal. Insanely beautiful. No rash, scratches, or blemishes. Brand New.






















The pics of the inside say "Made in Japan" and "17x7JJ"
