Default Can anyone name these wheels?

Sorry, I'm really not sure if this is the right place to post this and I apologize if it isn't, but I need help. Bought these back in 2012 and I don't remember from where (getting old sucks, lol). There's no brand name on the outside of the rim at all. I hit a cinderblock that fell off the back of a truck on the freeway, blew out the sidewall of my new tires and bent the rim. Theyre 17x7 or 17x7.5. Here are some pics. http://m.imgur.com/gallery/A6lI1

Thank you so much in advance!

Probably Rotas. Volk CE28 knockoffs. Could be Varrstoens too. How much did you pay for them?

They were cheap man, probably around 100 or less a wheel.

No center caps w/a design or name on them?

Did you buy them new or used?

If new, some cheap knock-offs

I threw the caps away because they were ugly. Yes, I know I'm stupid. Haha. Going to pull the wheel off tomorrow and see if I can see anything on the inside. I would have to find another rim the same exact size and weight correct? If it was a different weight wouldn't it screw up my axle?

You DEFINITELY want the exact same size

You do not want to replace a 22lb wheel with a 17lb wheel

You are going to screw something up if you don't match it.
Sometimes when stuff like this happens, you just have to accept it and replace the set

Possibly Focal, when you get your tire replaced have them check the inner barrel, most manufactures put a sticker
