Default Can anyone identify these rims?

My friend's integra was stolen in orange county, cali. This is the only picture she has of her car. We are trying to identify those rims in hopes of being able to find the person who might be parting out the car. Does anyone have any idea what these rims are?




Thanks!


edit: okay i lied, she found one more image. this one is better

iirc, those look like old enkeis (maybe sc05) or MSW rims. haven't seen those around in years.

i don't know what the original mfr/model # is if they're not the enkei knockoffs, though.

That car looks familiar. I've definitely seen those rims on other cars too.

I showed her the SC05's, she said those definitely are not it. I'll keep digging up the older MSW rims. Thanks.

That car was originally from Mililani. She actually only recently found out it has a salvage title (after it was stolen).

there was another company that made rims similar to those from MSW/enkei/etc...

TSW made some rims that were similar as well. that model may have been discontinued, though.

I initially checked on tirerack for a match. There's a couple that look similar...actually a few. But didn't find it.

yeah - the first place i looked was tirerack, but didn't see an exact match. i suspect that the rims might be discontinued, so they might be hard to find. i checked TSW too, because i kinda remember these rims being a bit on the older side when TSW and MSW rims were more common.

i don't think they're 5Zigen, SSR, or Sparcos because those rims at the time looked quite different from the u.s. brand styles or knockoffs.

they look familiar, but i just can't put my finger on the name.
