Default Anyone heard of hp design wheels?

So I just picked up a set of wheels. They are hp design 18x8. Never heard of the brand but the style isnt bad.
The best part about this deal is I payed $160 for the set!

The bad. They are in horrible condition, curbed to hell and back, but nothing I can't fix!

Here's how they looked when I got them.



And heres how one of wheels looks now, fixed the curb rash and sanded and ready for paint on the black part.


Curb rash gone!

My next quest is where to find the little fake bolts, I need new ones. The company that built the wheels has gone out of business though.

What's the thread pitch? Probably not going to find one with that head but you can replace them all with socket head cap screws in whatever pitch that is and get the same effect, the head will just be an allen instead of that torx-ish thing.

Just an idea.

I haven't heard the brand name "HP" in probably about 10 years or a little less. Can't really say that I ever saw anyone with HP wheels on, but I sure did see them in super street magazine a lot ha.

Looks like a one piece rim with added bling - I'd remove all the bling (weight for nada) and paint them up and have a set of wheels for a good price

This is true, it is weight for nothing. But there is no way of filling the hole the plastic left behind. These wheels are heavy as hell and are only for looks. I have a nice set of OZ wheels that are light that I use.
