My girlfriend just bought this car. She's not a big fan of the wheels. The seller told me they are Rod Millen wheels, and they were only available on some special miatas. They are in decent condition, missing 2 center caps. I hope worth a set of stock 1.8 wheels + remounting the tires.

Yea, I forgot the mention. They are made by Panasports.

I wonder how much they are worth.

Well how much they are worth depends on the buyer. In the words of those dudes on the show pawn stars "To the right buyer, they may be worth (insert optimistic price here)" but on CR<NET the weak offset and questionable styling may net you enough to buy a used steeeelie wheel....or break even on the tires the wheels are mounted on. YMMV

Actually, they were shown on an Escort GT Rod Millen made/sold parts for. It was a BP-T powered car, the GT-R engine. I think the car was yellow. RMM would build you one for a price. Definitely rare and worth something to the right buyer (also rare). Maybe Concealer might be interested for his EGT build, but not at a premium.

More here on a car I've been looking at in Tampa. This is the first time I've ever seen them in person:

They're quite rare...

I'd be more interested in other parts the car they came on had. (Jacobs Ignition, RMM strut bar, RMM header, grill, rear window wing)

The wheels are rare, but ugly.

In perfect shape they're worth about $250.

The red ones on the Miata above me might be worth $100-$150 at best. The centercaps are impossible to find.


Kungfu jesus, the RMM Escorts were a weird bunch. They weren't all turbo, it was kindof a pick and choose package. None of them came with the GTR engine, though. They were all BP-T cars, not BPD. If they were BPD, i would have bought both of the RMMs i've seen come up for sale in the last two years. :p

Fun fact about those wheels: The design IS functional for added brake cooling. I'd be interested. If they were AT LEAST 8" wide. ;) As it is, i'm going 15x10 6ULs on my car.

You can probably trade them on here, Mnet, or Craig's List for OEM wheels. Looks like an easy trade.

thanks! it's been years...

i can't remember who stuffed the GT-R engine in an EGT anymore.
Couple shops.... STP Motorsports i believe had a BPD in their car before they converted it to RWD.

There's been a few individuals to do it as well. Most famous being "TheRielDeal" who is also using a Toyota trans. "Daily driven 11 second freakshow" in his own words. :lol:

WOW Thanks for all the input guys.

Once I get her car in a better shape. I'll clean up the wheels and post them up here. It would be nice if I can trade them for a set for stock wheels + little bit of cash for mounting tires.
