    Minilite Sport

    I am not sure if these are originals, replicas, or even something completely different. 13" by 6 or 7. What do you guys think? There was no maker stamped anywhere. There was a size stamp and a few other stamps that I can get later. Here are some pics. Can you ID?

    I believe they're the later Minilite Sport.

    The Western made version is a little different (and ugly, IMO). If this is not a Minilite then it is probably the replica made by Shelby wheels. Europas. Is there stylized CS cast anywhere? I was about to buy a set of these, But the Enkei 92 became available so I bought those instead.

    And I still recon they're Minilite Sport alloys.
    They have the same center design as these, which differs from the normal Minilites...
