Default Which steels wheels are these?

Can anyone tell me what wheels/rims Austin Day is using on his Suby?
Looks like Volswagen/Audi steel rims?

Audi pepperpots - just search the forum for "Audi" e.g.:

Hi Kevin
Sorry to disgree but im 99,9% sure These are NOT Audi pepperpots.
They look different.
e.g.
Pepperpots are 10 holes and aluminium casted rims.
The wheels in the pic (especially the 2nd pic) are 16 holes and are definitive steel.

I know the pepperpots and the shape is really different to These ones.

Had a VW Tiguan before and the steel wheels look really similar to the ones in the pics but bolt pattern was 5x112 instead of 5x100 (Size is 6,5"*16")

If Austin uses VW steeles this is really interesting and i would like to know more ;-)

Yep not pepperpots, they have less holes, and the holes are larger and more central

They look very similar to the steel spare that came with my SH Forester.

Ditto my SG. I don't have mine anymore.

@scalman:
These ones look very similar but the holes are less big and the space between each hole is more than the ones Austin Days Forester uses.

@Beachworm
Ive never seen this design on a SH Forester here in Europe.
May be the wheels are different between Europe and USA/Australia?
The Forester SH steel wheels over here are 5 or 10 holes.

Ive send an email to RetroRoo , a Subi Workshop in Northglenn. They work at the Subi from time to time...maybe they know something.
