    I can tell by the pixles



















    But really, the spokes are too square, the bolts are wrong, and the valve stem is in the wrong place.

      steelies look damn good but not worth the heft IMO
      If I remember correctly - they are even heavier around 32lbs each. I was looking into them as well until I heard how much they weigh.

            Anyone know the model of these MSW wheels? All I know is they are MSW, 4X100, 15X7. I asked the seller what the offset of the wheels are and have not heard back yet. I did a Google search on vintage/old school MSW and didn't find anything on these wheels.

            Edit (5/27/18), I just found pics of these MSW wheels in the VW Vortex website in wheels for sale section. There are two different ads regarding these wheels. One seller says the wheels are MSW Princes and the other said they are MSW Amil wheels so I'm confused on what the name of these MSW wheels are. BTW, I went over to the sellers house today and checked them out, they are ET26. I bought them on the spot, $100 for all 4, seller wanted them gone. They need to be restored but nothing a wheel shop can't fix. My 15X7 ET26 MSW basketweaves will probably go up for sale since I hate cleaning basketweaves but that's down the road.

                  I think they are from the Enkei catalog from back in the 80s. You may also want to try American Eagle wheels.

                    Not centra turbos because those have 6 spokes.
                    It's some kind of turbo, turbine or throwing star style wheel.

                            They look like Compomotives. Not entirely sure though

                                These wheels came on the car and I cannot find any identifying markings. Any help is appreciated. 16x8 and I measured about ~5" of backspacing. I am not sure what number is the offset.
