QC Anyone in JP available to help me track down 4x120 wheels for my Cosmo?

Hi Everyone!

Im trying to find some wheels for my Cosmo. If anybody in JP is willing to help me track down a rare set and help with shipping I would be happy to pay a finders fee.

Essentially I am looking for anything that will fit a Cosmo. Trying not to be too picky as it is very hard to find something in the right PCD and offset. 4x120, at least 7 wide, offset somewhere -8 to 0, 14 or 15".
Options I'm ok with:
SSR Supermesh, Longchamp XR4, SSR Mark 1/2/3, Watanabe 4-spoke, Work Equip, Equip reverse or Excel, Hayashi street, Volk Mesh, Enkei Apaches, Enkei Bajas.

Would prefer the mesh options but any of the above would be awesome. Hopefully somebody will want to help out a fellow vintage rotary enthusiast. If anybody is interested in helping me source some parts please contact me via pm

I have a factory set of Cosmos wheels. The tires are in good shape also. let me know of your interested. They are called 'keyhole" wheels and are factory.

I hate to break it to you but you wont be able to find any of the wheels you listed in 15", or those offsets and especially not in 120pcd. I am also pretty sure that a 7j wheel with those offsets will not fit a cosmo without some overfenders/ fender flares.

I think you best option is to have a machine shop make you some bolt on spacers that also convert your bolt pattern to 114.3 . Sorry for all the bad news but I really do think the bolt on spacer with pattern change is your best bet.

Also I would love to see pictures of you cosmo! Can you post some up?

I just noticed another thread you posted an realized you own a 78 cosmo. I was thinking you were trying to put those wheels on a Cosmo Sport! hahaha my bad. I do not know too much about the 78 cosmo but I still think the bolt on spacer with pattern change is the best way to get some nice wheels on your car.

Yes, you are correct. Will likely be going the bolt on spacer route as I am having one hell of a time finding appropriate wheels.

I have found a couple sets on Yahoo Auctions Japan however. 14" 6.5 or 7 in the correct offsets and bolt patterns. Issue is that I am being picky and not satisfied with my limited choices at the moment. I would like to get some SSR Mesh wheels on the car.

You can check out some pictures here:

I realize this thread is a little old, but here is what I am running for now on my 1976 Cosmo.

Diamond Racing 4x120 PCD, 15x7 with a 0 offset.

Excuse the mess. They sit right inside the wheel arches.
