    I was at the junkyard today and I noticed a V6 with some 95 cobra R wheels. Seeing how it was in the yard and nobody had taken them I assumed they were replicas but as I got closer I noticed that they had the stampings next to the valves. I checked the back but didn't see a ford logo anywhere but I noticed it said "Not Original Equipment." Do any of you know if these might have been frpp? Or maybe another manufacturer that adhered to the specs that would allow for the stampings next to the valve stem? Thanks

    R58 wheels don't say Ford anywhere and are made in Japan. R50 wheels on the other hand say FORD/Made in USA.
    What did the stampings by the valve stems read?

    It was like this, the JUL? VIA and the numbers on the other side which I can't remember. Yeah I'm pretty sure it didn't say hinodex or made in japan either as I remembered they were and that would have caught my eye. What did catch my eye though was that it stated "Not Original Equipment" which I thought was strange, so I thought of FRPP as they are technically not original.
