  1. I’m not an steel wheel expert but:
    – 1st : I think about a Peugeot 404 pick-up (looks like my father’s used in Cévennes countryside 😉
    – 2nd : the body of the second pic is probably a Saab 96
    – 3rd & 4th : absolutely no idea
    – 5th: Maybe a Ford Escort Mk3?

    • 1. Not a 404 pickup, but you’re on the right track. It’s from a French car.
      2. Correct!
      3. The bumper should be a big hint.
      4. Japanese – admittedly the hardest of the bunch.
      5. Not an Escort. Think German.

    • 1. Nope, but you’re on the right track, it’s French.
      2. Correct.
      3. Correct, though early Ka models were fitted with those wheels, too.
      4. Nope, but it’s JApanese.
      5. Correct.

    • 1. Correct.
      2. 96, but we’ll take 93. Both work.
      3. Correct.
      4. Correct (also mounted on 810s, among other models).
      5. Were those mounted on the third-gen Escorts? The picture is a Ka, and I know those wheels were mounted on third-gen Fiesta, but I’ve never seen them on an Escort. Could be, though.
