Hi Folks, a newbie here, I've just bough a Fabia Monte Carlo 110 TSI and its quick enough for me thankyou very much, I've had the stupid quick stuff and had the points to prove it, this is a great modern take on a hot hatch smart interior and subtle body trims.

It has been fitted with 18's instead of the original 16's despite the Skoda badges I don't think they are a Skoda wheel (off a Superb etc) as under the cap they are multi drilled fitment. So can anyone identify them for me in case I need a replacement.

If they are multi-drilled they are 100% aftermarket, so you need to take one off & look for a name in the casting.

I looked for these, I was bored...

1st thoughts were they look similar to CSL's, so started there, looking for reps. Then I was sure there was a Merc with similar and found these, but slightly different.

Then got onto knockoff wheels, given the multiholes. These are similar but no lip.

These have the lip of the 'forks' but the ends of the 'forks' look totally different

In conclusion, I don't know. But it wasted an hour of my time as I was up early.

As O.P Thanks to everyone who checked out my thread and tried to locate the name for me. I've found them they are Fox VR3 18 inch. They have had Skoda badges fitted in place of the Fox badges. it was so well done I assumed they were big saloon Skoda genuine wheels until i took the caps off and saw they were multi drilled. I trawled through loads of Wheel suppliers until I found them.
