If those are 17" the manufacturer would have been the original supplier in South Africa to Backdraft. That company closed many years ago.

They are 17 inch wheels. The marks are in the pictures of my second post. I tried to put them to my first post. There are some marks on the inside.
Which adapter or spinner will fit to these wheels trigo, american racing or what?
Or do I need a new set of wheels with adapter, if I need some new parts for it?

If you are looking for a set of 17s, there are some posted on Parts for Sale (Private Party) on this Forum.
If you are just needing a rear wheel, I know where there are two of them. No fronts though.
If you are purchasing new wheels, make it easy on yourself and call Vintage Wheels. They advertise on this site. I needed one 17 (front), could not locate used, and had to purchase 4 new ones from Vintage. I went with lug bolts and have been very happy with them vs. pin drives and they look just fine if not better because of a slightly different offset (in my opinion along with others). Advantage of lug bolts are you can get them off and on much easier, feel more secure that they are on there correctly and not come off, plus if you want, can pick up a BMW spare tire for those trips.

I still would have gone with knock offs .it"s a cobra and cobras use knock offs . Just my opinion.

^^^
Haus, as a fellow person that has experienced losing a wheel, are you sure ??
I feel the same way you do, but I have a question.
Do you have that little voice ?? (are the wheels tight ????)
Do you agree that voice would be much more quiet with lug nuts ??
Just saying...

Brother I hear you loud and clear. However I stand by my opinion . Like I said, precheck every drive,use loctite, use a lead hammer for tightening the knockoffs, use safety wire. finally get educated about your car. Dare I say read post by people like buzz,patrckt,ron61,and others.also if you would like I would invite folks to read mine too.

Or get a set of lug covers like I did that to most people look like knockoffs but the lugnuts are hidden underneath.
