Hello, and welcome!

They do, along with mk1 Mazda rx7 ones and a (very) few others. Problem being, they are all pretty hard to come by (think rocking horses) and when you do find some they are often eye wateringly expensive. Also beware various eBay ads for wheels that say 'fits daihatsu cuore' or hijet, but actually aren't the correct 4x110pcd pattern that you need. Enjoy the hunt though, you may get lucky.

Sorry to spoil your illusion, but all three marks of the RX7 from 1983 to 2002 have a PCD of 114mm, not 110mm.

Bah, pedant. Ok, ok, I should have specified mk1, series 1, although they produced it up to 1984, so you are wrong too Very Happy

Trust me, I'm still gutted at missing out on a set of 13" 4x110 Mazda wheels last year that went for £35 the set Crying or Very sad

Right, thank you for that. My source of information only lists from 1983 onwards.

As regards the Curore, it is only models from 1990 to 1998 that have 110mm PCD.
98 on are 100mm PCD.

Anyway, the moral of the story is that 4x110s in a workable size are generally found on limited versions of ancient, hard to come by, Japanese relics. Doesn't mean they don't exist but it may be a bit of a hunt to find them (bit of rhyming slang there?)

I still look, but til that lucky day I just went for spraying the rims black and sticking some trims on (albeit with some snazzy/gaudy skull centre badging). Quite like them now if I don't look too closely!

I've got 3 types of Genuine Daihatsu Alloys all purchased new from a closing Daihatsu Dealer. If you care to send me your email address to hi.jetmaniow@gmail.com I will send you some pictures of them.

I have a set of SE alloys on my 03 MPV and a set 10 spokes on my 04 Romahome and another set of SE's on a 2002 van.

I still have the set of 4 Alloys on my MPV in my Avatar, and might be persuaded to sell them, if the price is right.

Thank you very much for the enquiry, but they will be adorning Raggy's beautifully restored Devon Camper, Skylark very soon.

I still have the alloys but they are on three of my Hi-Jets and the other set will be on a fourth later this year.

Ask him what the PCD is for the wheels he is supplying.

Most wheel companies supply PCD 4x108 which are not the right fitment, but with wobble nuts, they are made to fit.

The Hijet has a fitment of PCD 4x110 - which is a very very rare bolt pattern.

Expect to pay for second hand wheels, anywhere between £50 to £250.
