Question Please help IDing these rims!

Hey guys!

First post!! I am in the market for rims for my '00. I saw these:

If anyone could Identify them for me that would be great. There are a lot out there that kind of look like them but I am trying to find these specifically.

Thanks guys!

My first guess was JAZ or TSW. They both advertise wheels very similar to those in your photo but not exactly the same. Have you check the wheel thread?

They look a lot like these, but the spokes aren't quite right:

They remind me of Miro Alt wheels.

I think you're right. Check out this link to the Miro 371.

Thumbs up

Nice! I think your right with the Miros! Are the ones in the photo 19"s tho? If they are what's the ride like on 19"s? Spacers would be needed?

I have these in black 19". You need spacers for the back only.

I had no issue with ride quality.

They look expensive, if I had an unlimited budget, I'd get a set of HRE's.

Question

Ok guys, I've changed my mind once I looked through the miro catalog. I am not sure about tire widths and the ratios they need to be. Can someone check the numbers on this page?

Thanks
