Potenza Mesh wheels. 14x6 i was looking all over the wheel to look for multi piece evidence, and i found a seam, that looks like it's welded, where the face connects to the barrel, but idk where else to look on the wheel. PLEASE HELP!!

Generally, with a 2 piece wheel, the face will be bolted onto the barrel. There will be an obvious seam, and real bolts.

With 3 piece, the face will be bolted and if you pull the tire off, you should see another seem right around where the face bolts up.

What you have looks like it could be similar to SSRs. They're 3 piece, but the barrels are welded at the same...so people consider them 2 piece.

the welds will always be on the backside. That one bolt off and take a look inside the hole. Check to see if you can see layers. The layers are the pieces that makes up the wheel. what are your plans if they are 3pc?

if i keep them, i'll probably flip the faces, if thats possible, it'd reverse the offset. i just had the tires off when i put new ones on, and i didnt even think to look :/
