Default Please help me figure out if these are real =(

Hey guys been trying to sell these Work Emotion CR Kais for awhile now and I'm not sure if these are real anymore. Had a buyer today question the authenticity of these wheels. I just emailed work about these as well, but who knows how long that will take. So please Nasioc help me find out whats the deal with these wheels, so I can either adjust my post (aka not fraud people) or be happy knowing I actually didn't get screwed lol.

A little background: Bought these on the SCIC forums a couple of years ago claiming these to be legit, but looks like the original thread was deleted. Specs are 18x8.5 +43 with 5x114 bolt pattern. The wheels do have 5x100 embossed on the front though, but 5x114 on the inside.

Heres a link to my google picasso with stuff I have FS, but the wheels are on there too. I'll try to get some pics up of the inside tomorrow if that will help.

Thanks for you help guys!

I remember my buddy had these exact specs and bolt pattern. I do remember questioning why they said "5x100" when they were clearly 5x114. He bought them straight from Work.

I can't remember 100 percent but I do remember asking something along those lines and being confused. He said, the reason they were embossed on the front as 5x100 were because those holes in between the bolts can be drilled out to be 5x100.

Try measuring the smaller bolt holes and see if they line up to a wrx or any 5x100 car. If they do, that should should be your solution to the front embossing. Hope this helps.
