This one has XR4's

I reckon XR4's look way more proportional in 14's than in 15's(and 13's). The spokes get too long in 15's IMO. There's probably not many old Mazda's out there on them as they're not common in 4x110(or 4x120 for the RX5/121). There were 2 sets on Yahoo Auctions recently in both 110 and 120, the 120's went for a very reasonable price but the 110's went pretty high.

I've sold some to a member on here with a 1300 coupe(don't know if he's mounted them), and I've also sold a set to another member restoring a JDM spec Familia Presto coupe, so there'll be some more soon.

Here's a few more

RX3's

RX5

A few more of my wagon, which is a 1200, not 1300 :wink: (glad you like it! :D )

2 of the 3 4x110 sets that I've had(still got 1 set)

thanks for the 'not so common' pics :D
i thought 4x120s would be pricey than the 4x110s but clearly i was mistaken
your 1200 wags is a thing of beauty! really drew me into the wags when i acquired mine (4-door) a month or so ago. still hibernating though until i am done with my 1500
(sorry for the crappy phone camera pic i will shoot some more when i have the time)

Image

here is the set of 4x120s that i picked up cheap 'accidentally' but needed resto. here they are after some resto

Image
Image

and here is how they looked before resto

I guess it comes down to there being more people with 4x110 cars(Mazda/early Corolla/Daihatsu etc) that want the 4x110 wheels that are hard to find, versus the less common 4x120 cars(RX5/121/1500/1800/early Civic) and the people not so desperate for them even though they are just as hard, if not harder to find. The 4x110 set went for 47.5k yen and were mild offset 6.5's(perfect for R100/1200/1300 though), where the 4x120 set went for half that and were a nicer dished, lower offset set....and both sets had all caps, which definitely adds value too.

Your wagon looks nice, and 4 doors are cool....post some more pics when you can. I'm glad mine was an inspiration(always nice to hear stuff like that)....it's still one of my favourite Mazda cars I've owned so far!

Your set has come up beautifully! I've never gone with a full resto on any of my wheels as I think slightly aged ones suit my car better as it's still mostly original and a little bit aged itself. The one set of XR4's I've kept are near mint and look almost unused(they are the top ones in the photo of the 2 sets). Where abouts are you located?

fair enough explanation on why 4x110s tend to be pricey than the 4x120s, makes perfect sense. mine are missing the center caps and i am on the look out for original some. yes the set did come out real nice in the end as i put in lot of work in the resto myself

i will snap a few clicks once i head to the shed where the wags is stored. it however needs full restoration, though its mostly complete but lot of parts would be needed to bring it to the level i would want it to be after ground up resto

i am located in pakistan which once was very rich with JDM mazdas but not anymore as locally the mechanics were rather on odds with working on mazdas as compared to toyotas. a few however stroll the roads here, some with pride some not so much. however there are plenty of NOS mazda parts still waiting to be found in ex-mazda parts stores which now have switched to other jap makes business. my 1500 rebuild thread HERE on ausrotary has probably the highest number of NOS parts put together in one build thread of all the 1500s we have seen here :D

i am counting on finding similar kind of huge NOS parts dump when it comes to my wags resto (though i haven't looked as of yet) :-k
