The official "What is this wheel?" thread.

There seems to be a need for a thread like this. Now stop making new threads all the time and just post it here!

So to get the ball rolling, anyone know what these are? They're not RS's, and not BBS.

in that case, your wheels came from these guys

call them to find out. Last I heard the name of the wheel manufacturer was "OE Performance"
