Some old holden lovers may be able to answer this question.

My mate has a couple of sets of old holden wheels.
they have alloy centres and alloy/steel (not sure) rims.
The centres have a rim of bolt holes around the outer edge that bolt it to a flange on the inside of the rim.

the name of them is MOYA,
and also another set that has HEAD MOD cast into the centres.

he has 13" rims, but the rears are 10.5"wide! He is looking for a set or rims around 8 inches wide. They are early holden stud pattern.

Does anyone remember these wheels/ know where to get more/ have any in their shed (worth a try!)

thanks for the info in advance...

I have since found out they are called "mawer" or so some guy on oldholden.com forum says. They have racing history:

They were on a dick Johnson car in the 70s ("Zupps" car). no other info yet, but lots of people wantto buy them!

No kidding Hang onto them if you can, price can only go up.
They are likely from a roundy (touring car) and you'll probably find something stamped into the rim near the valve hole. That will indicate who's wheels they were (for example mine have RW - short for roadways racing from whom I purchased alot of their stuff). The tyre tents used the codes stamped onto the wheels to return them to the right owner after new tyres were fitted.
I believe earlier racing wheels had the owners stamp elsewhere on the rim, which is why you probably having trouble finding out more info. Have a look around the wheel for anything stamped into them, not cast in. I might be able to help further if you find anything else.

I remember seeing something a long time ago in Street and Custom(?) about a HK Monaro that was pinched and had Mawser(?) wheels on it. They were said to be worth a fair bit back then, prolly 15 years ago now.
