I found these in an attic a while back. Can't find any identifying markings on them anywhere. Anybody know what they are or who made them?

Deltas, eh? Hmm. They're damn light. I'm kinda wondering if they're magnesium. I did a quick google on Delta and didn't come up with much. I know they're more than 25 years old at the very least given the location I found them.

Pretty sure it's a 914 wheel. They pop up on Craiglsist around here from time to time and they're usually pretty cheap. I think they'd kick ass if they were all polished up. Wink

would have to be a 914-6 at the very least since 914 was 4x130 also. never seen a set myself. i think polished and detailed they'd look good. i think the person in the other post also mentioned they were really light. i think the little info i got before is that they are an italian wheel company that made wheels for several foreign cars. never dug deeper since they were;t for sale hahaha...ken....

mines are 14"x6j, are yours the same size?
hubcup(not sure if original) says they are delta milano,since i bought them in italy and "milano" is in italy as well, i'm assuming they are from an italian company.
i was told theye were pulled from a porsche 911.
that's all i was ablle to find out,even asking on italian forums.

I haven't measured mine actually. I think they're 14s though. I have no caps. Just the rims. They're in pretty good condition. Either someone started to or these were polished at one time (the raised portions).

They are NOT the same look at the spokes. The spokes on one wheel is flat with no empression/design and is open on the end of it the other has an impression/design and the spoke goes all the way to the outer barrel.

They are the same, that's why, but the lighting will fool many!
