my recently-acquired track wheels, which may or may not be genuine (JDM) OZ superturismo evolutions, though they do have OZ centercaps (whatever...). None of the markings on the back of the hub indicate for sure if they're real or knockoffs. The weight is dead-on within a pound to the real ones, for what it's worth (subtracting the known weight of the tires on them). They have all the usual certification markings, PCD, load limit, etc stamped on the rear, but no specific manufacturer notation other than part numbers and serial numbers possibly. PCD, hub bore, offset are all the same as the "real" ones...

One numeric marking somewhat matches up with a part number on a wheel made by Panther Wheels (PCW), but I haven't found any evidence anywhere that Panther ever made a wheel like this...all of their wheels are bling-bling showy/chrome stuff, so this would seem out of character for them to make.

....so they're either rare JDM OZs of which there aren't many around, or rare unknown knockoffs, lol..
