Mystery Wheels

Here's a question for all of you out there....
Recently I have been trying to get a new spare wheel for my 1967 camaro. The only problem is that they aren't the original wheels and we can't seem to figure out what they are. We first thought that they might be ansen wheels, but we were told that it would say ansen on the inside of the wheel, ours do not. Here's what it does say though... "Max wheel load 1530 lbs 14*5 1/2 Meets Sema Specs 5-1" "Gardena CAL" "1022775"

I am hoping with that info, you guys might be able to identify it.
Here's a pic of it as well, http://img184.imageshack.us/my.php?i...7290017wc0.jpg

Thanks all in advanced,
Jack

Re: Mystery Wheels

They appear to be American Racing "Ansen Sprint" wheels, manufactured at the ARE plant in Gardena, CA. ARE is one of several companies who replicated Ansen's wheel style.

Re: Mystery Wheels

Might be Fentons, but my Fentons say so inside them too.

But they for sure are "slotted mags"...

I'll agree - sure do look like Ansens - but the reflection makes the center a little hard to be depict.
