    so i got these from a friend and i have no idea what they are. i was told that they're old rotas but i'm not sure and i can't find them online anywhere. help?

    btw, i don't like them either way so if anyone wants them, make an offer.

    i know, i know. they're really not that bad up close. the guy repainted them or something and the paint is peeling off, which you can obviously see....

    Well those decals on the lip of the wheels are Mugen.. but I can't find a wheel anywhere that matches so IDK if what kind they are.

    Looks kinda like a knockoff of some sort, but some places make good ones making the real ones look fake, its really rare though. :ph34r:
    Clean off the inside of the wheels and look for manufacturers marks. The part you normally don't see, that may help a bit.

    I figured that must have been the case they didn't really look like any Mugen design I've ever seen before :) Do they have any other markings/stamps anywhere on the front or back?

    about the the closest I have found, they probably stopped making them. The ones you have are like a 5 spoke auto X wheel.

    I have no idea. Do you know what size they are?
    I knew someone that had a set like yours.
