Default Will they won't they?? (Wheels with pic's)

Evening all, been looking at wheel options and have been to look at some O.Z splits.

I think there O.Z Vegas, 16" 2 piece split wheels.

The chap selling had them on a 3dr originaly but the wheels visualy look different.

All 4 look like 7.5j but only 2 have it on the centre's, and have et33 on (top wheel in the picture)

rears I would say have 225/45/16's on.

fronts have 215/40/16's.

Any help with fitment or any issues would be appreciated.

Do you thing these will fit my 4x4 sapphire with standard brakes on?

The rear tyres are quite wide. I would ask the seller if you can try them to make sure they will fit on your car. Be a pain to buy them and then find out you have a fitment problem. A lot of alloy wheels for a Saff have et35 but that is probably to fit over big brakes and 17inch wheels.

The seller did offer but time and light was going so snapped a quick pick for reference and headed off.

Props be the only real way to see what fitments like.

i can see the rears catching ,unless you have arches trimmed a little.depending on suspension height and if you have the rear loaded up with passengers.

they are suited more to a 3dr than a saff though imo

I would ideally run a smaller tyre on the rear but what's puzzling me is the 2 different styles of wheel for for t and back but both seem to the same dimensions...is it a 3dr thing to make the front tip??

i think they look a bit strange myself.maybe it was to give a nose down stance but very strange look for a saff mate

No point looking at the stamps on the centres for offset as with different barrels could be anything. They are definitely different offsets front to rear and possibly different width. As someone else said far more suited to a 3dr than a saph. Nice wheel though and quite rare i expect.

All a little irrelevant at the moment as if the car is running those size tyres then the centre Diff is going to have a hissy fit straight away.

Probably a sensible move, try to find 4 wheels exactly the same size and design that will have no fitment issues.
