Steel wheels

Test your steel wheel IQ, eleventh edition

Last year, we started a new series on Ran When Parked called “test your steel wheel IQ.” The point of it is to share our rather unorthodox passion for steel wheels and see how good our readers are at recognizing them.

Can you name the make and model that the following wheels come from? In some cases we have blacked out the logo on the center cap because it would have been too easy to guess otherwise.  Also, there are several right answers for some of these wheels.

Have fun, and thanks for playing along.

      • Ok, another try then.
        1. ca. ’65 Ford F100
        2. Looks French, but I give up on this one.
        3. has to be the Fiat 128, post-1975, then. Can’t find a picture of one with these wheels, but it’s the only option and door+bumper fit…
        4. Citroen Dyane, I think. Kind of tricky without the chrome hubcap

  1. I’m 100% confident about 1, but I don’t know any of the others.

    1. Land-Rover (Series 3 88″)
    4.Citroen 2CV ??

    … And, yes, I can tell the difference between Series 2 and Series 3 and 88″ and 109″ wheels!

    • Hell of an eye you’ve got! I doubt I can do that, I’m not a Land Rover expert. What sets them apart, out of curiosity?

      4 is not a 2CV, they all had three-lug steelies. You’re very close though.
