Help Identifying Wheels

I need some help identifying these wheels. They are aluminum. The owner claims they are a stock rim from some car but didn't tell me of course. They sure don't look stock. He uses them to race, the offset makes them stick out a little, but unknown how much exactly.

From the looks of them, they are from a rear wheel drive car possibly an 80's era Fox body like the Mustang, if not stock then an aftermarket rim to fit them, assuming its the 4x108 bolt pattern. The reason I say they are for a rear wheel drive car is because off the apparent offset of the rims being they are a bit concave on the outside of them, opposed to flat or convex for a standard front wheel drive rim.

Basically if you were to put that rim onto a Focus the rim would stick out an inch or two past the fender.

They do stick out past the fender. They are from a rear wheel drive car. We race on dirt oval tracks and the rules say we need to use "Stock" rims. I asked the tech guy at the track and he said they were from a rear wheel drive car but couldn't remember which kind of car. They don't look stock to me but maybe they are....
Maybe they are American Racer Outlaw II. http://www.cjponyparts.com/american-...1973/p/W126-V/
Are these stock or similar to stock on any mustang? It says 1965-1973.

Those AR Outlaw 2's do look like the rims you pictured, however at least to me they look to me like they are steel rims instead of the aluminum rims that the AR O2's are.

While I am not a Mustang expert, personally speaking I do not think the are stock rims. However there are so many rim styles out there, and many aftermarket ones that look like stock rims it is really hard for me to say for sure.

I do like the look of them however of the steel rims with holes around the edge of it. The winter tire rims for my 95 Caprice SS are mounted on AR-767 rims, and the stock 15" "police" rims have a similar look to them.

Doubt they're "stock" from anything.

Typical for inexpensive aftermarket with the fake bolt setup to mimic muti-piece racing type wheels.
