They're Dunlop Wheels I think they're called Dunc, must be the same Stud Pattern as them I guess or Dunlop must have made some in the Stud pattern that fits Escorts I guess... Yes over-priced but as you always say Dunc that is what they are making so... that's the price of these AVO shelled cars now :shock:

AFAIK Ford Australia built several models specifically for the Australian market. Surely one of the OZ forum members can enlighten us?
