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...

Did some bead blasting today. These things came with some THICK black powder coating.
