Can anyone recognize these wheels?

Does anyone recognize what these wheels might have gone on? They are aluminum 15x7's with plastic center caps and I was told that they were on a Jeep of some sort. They are for sale around here and I think they would look killer on my Torino.

Actually. All joking aside. They look like 80's Buick Regal T-Type Wheels.

Looks like an old Western wheel to me.

Looking for FE fenderwell headers.

Good call on the GN/T-type wheels, but it's not them. The cutouts are straight along the blades and outer rim (The GN/T-Type wheels have a more elliptical cutout). Although, I do love GN wheels.

I honestly don't know WHAT they were made for, that's what I'm trying to figure out. But they are typical 5x4.5 bolt pattern with I think 4in backspace.

Re: Can anyone recognize these wheels?

These are similar but they aren't quite right either.

Even found some like I used to have on the shotrod but narrower. I had 10" wide on the back. Loved them but hate them both.

Look like the one's that were on the 'little bus' that FE used to ride to school on.

Thanks for the tip, but I checked the wheels a couple wheels ago when I met up with the guy. He has them for sale locally. They are 15x7's with 4in backspace. Measured them myself.... I sorta learned after getting a set of aluminum sprint wheels a month ago where the backspacing on the rear 8.5in wheel was only 3in.

Here's my add on craigslist for them since I can't use them:
Ford Mustang Wheels Ansen Fenton Sprint 14x7 and 15x9
(Actually, I can use the 14x7's, but I figured I would sell them as a set.)
